Microsoft 365 now includes machine learning tools
Microsoft at its annual Build conference for developers announced a $25 million initiative tasked with using artificial intelligence to better the lives of people with disabilities. The service can identify issues through visual imagery, making it possible for drone photography or images from industrial equipment to be analyzed on the edge for quick response to critical issues.
Under the drone partnership, DJI will use the Azure cloud computing service as a "preferred cloud provider" (it can still choose competing cloud companies like Google, example), and will create a software development kit that works with Windows 10. Microsoft is also expected to roll out the Redstone 5 release by the end of this year.
Facebook had its F8 developers' gathering last week. Microsoft says the cameras will be able to run Azure services including machine learning and cognitive services by downloading them and running them locally, without a connection to the cloud.
Microsoft plans to share more details on 365 during tomorrow's Build festivities. Moreover, Microsoft will also live stream the Day 1 and Day 2 speeches from the event at Channel 9 Website.
In addition to the SDK for Windows, Microsoft and DJI are collaborating to develop commercial drone solutions using Azure IoT Edge and AI technologies for customers in key vertical segments such as agriculture, construction, and public safety. There will be also be support for deeperSharePoint integration in Teams and the ability to view Power BI Visualizations in Excel. There will also be a livestream available through dedicated Build 2018 website. AI is also at the core of Microsoft's digital assistant Cortana and Translator app. The company unveiled a new app, Your Phone, which will provide "a window into a user's phone right from their PC for seamless transition of content like messages, photos and notifications".
Elsewhere, Microsoft is bringing its speech recognition tech to developers with the new Speech Devices SDK.
