View iOS, Android Content on Windows 10 PCs With 'Your Phone'

Watch out, Windows 10 April update can freeze Chrome, Cortana and more

In Seattle, at the company's Build conference, the company is opening up new APIs and tying deeper into SharePoint as well.

Kinect was the coolest gadget Microsoft made that no one actually used, but now the company is bringing it back with an all new focus: AI and the cloud. A new Speech Devices SDK will provide improved audio processing for higher accuracy in speech recognition, while updates to Azure Cognitive Services will bring enhanced speech recognition and text-to-speech, as well.

Microsoft's Satya Nadella is starting to push the tech industry to rethink how it handles user privacy.

The company has also teamed up with Qualcomm to launch an AI developer kit for on-device inferencing on the edge. The program comprises grants, technology investments and expertise, and will also incorporate AI for Accessibility innovations into Microsoft Cloud services.

Speaking of drones, a new SDK from drone giant DJI is also coming to Windows 10 PCs, the release noted. Microsoft Edge browsing sessions are included in the Timeline experience on a Windows 10 PC.


IoT Edge is also getting a number of other updates that don't directly involve machine learning. Project Kinect for Azure is a package of sensors (including a next-generation depth camera) with on-board compute capabilities.

Microsoft hasn't provided a ton of information on Project Kinect for Azure yet, but what it has looks interesting.

Microsoft Remote Assist will enable users to communicate remotely via hands-free video calling, image sharing and mixed-reality annotations. Import 3-D models to create room layouts in real-world scale, experience designs as high-quality holograms in physical space or in virtual reality, and share and edit with stakeholders in real time. Through this developers can create camera-based IoT solutions by using Azure services and hardware from Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform and AI Engine.

Visual Studio Live Share, now in preview, lets developers easily and securely collaborate in real-time with team members who can edit and debug directly from their existing tools like Visual Studio 2017 and VS Code. IoT Edge is a collection of tools that brings AI, Azure services and custom apps to IoT devices.

Microsoft today announced that it will be bringing Windows Timeline to its iOS Edge Browser later this year.
