Microsoft Isn't Done With Kinect Yet

Microsoft may announce newer capabilities of AI, new updates on Azure, cloud computing platform, and mixed-reality developments.

He also talked about Microsoft's Project Brainwave computer chip initiative that is now available for Azure coders in a test or preview version. This will enable devices such as drones and industrial equipment to take critical action quickly without requiring cloud connectivity. Microsoft FarmBeats integrates DJI's PC Ground Station Pro software and mapping algorithm to create real-time heatmaps on Azure IoT Edge. Microsoft says there are more than 700 million Windows 10 devices now active globally.

At Microsoft's Build conference this week, the company announced new development opportunities for the platform but more importantly, they helped provide clarity about how the company looks at the suite of software.

Microsoft on Monday kicked off its annual developer's conference, Build 2018 in Seattle.


Azure Bot Service uses the Microsoft Bot Framework, which reported more than 130,000 users one year ago. AI is also at the core of Microsoft's digital assistant Cortana and Translator app.

Microsoft is mainly expected to focus on its products and services including Windows 10, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and its cloud computing platform Azure during the course of the two-day event. The new Kinect won't be sold to consumers, but developers can sign on to receive a Kinect hardware kit that they can use to build their own tracking devices.

Using the Microsoft cloud and AI technologies, Microsoft and DJI will work together to create new drone services for various industries, including agriculture, construction, and public safety. Over time, Microsoft will give developers direct access to the chips, said Burger, who is also a distinguished engineer at the company. Microsoft also announced that SharePoint is being integrated to a deeper level with Teams - so that users can pin a SharePoint page into channels, for instance. Keep in mind that developers need to update their apps to support Timeline, so not every Windows app that is also available on Android will be visible on Timeline.

The Microsoft Launcher app on Android will support enterprise customers including line-of-business app discovery and IT advisement on configuration.
