"Building on Kinect's legacy that has lived on through HoloLens, Project Kinect for Azure empowers new scenarios for developers working with ambient intelligence", the company said at Build. Brainwave allows developers to deploy machine learning models onto programmable silicon and achieve high performance beyond what they'd be able to get from a CPU or GPU.
While many feel Microsoft is neglecting Windows, today's announcements at Build 2018 shows Microsoft is doing what it can, within the constraints of reality, to keep Windows relevant for regular users.
Microsoft says it has a new Kinect device in the works, with some new sensors and plenty of computing power on board.
Other IoT Edge updates include the planned launch of a marketplace that will allow Microsoft partners and developers to share and monetize their edge modules, as well as a new certification program for hardware manufacturers to ensure that their devices are compatible with Microsoft's platform.
In the red-hot area of containers, Microsoft said that its Azure Kubernetes Service - which enables developers to more easily build and run solutions based on containers - will be generally available in the next few weeks.
Baggies Sting Tottenham To Keep EPL Hope Alive
They avoided relegation again when Southampton conceded an injury-time goal to draw 1-1 at Everton in Saturday's late game. Defeat meant a significant setback to Tottenham's hopes of claiming a top-four finish.
Microsoft has also updated its Bot Framework, which when combined with its new Cognitive Services updates, will enhance the next generation of conversational bots.
Microsoft also is making available a limited preview of Project Brainwave "on the edge", officials said today. This is another example of how Microsoft is bringing its own features to rival platforms instead of going after them by limiting its services to Windows.
Microsoft unveiled new tools that enable mobile users to access the Windows experience on the smartphones at its annual Build developer conference.Even though Microsoft stopped Windows 10 Mobile development, the company is expanding support for smartphone users on Apple's iOS and Google's Android operating systems. One notable update is that the company is patterning up with GitHub, to help developers automate their DevOps processes from right within the service without ever leaving GitHub.
The biggest piece of the partnership is the SDK, which Microsoft says will bring full flight control and real-time data transfer capabilities to Windows 10 devices.
