Microsoft brings Kinect back from the dead… for Azure

Microsoft brings Kinect back from the dead… for Azure

Windows developers will be able to use DJI drones alongside Azure's extensive cloud and IoT toolset to build AI solutions that are trained in the cloud and deployed down to drones in the field in real-time, allowing businesses to quickly take advantage of learnings at one individual site and rapidly apply them across the organization.

Facebook had its F8 developers' gathering last week.

Nadella praised the upcoming European Union regulation on Monday, calling privacy a human right.

Microsoft 365 is a comprehensive development platform - with pen, ink, mobile, devices, cloud and developer tools - all with infused intelligence, bringing simplicity to customers and streamlining development. Since then, the Kinect has been iterated on before being discontinued as a standalone product, but the technology lives on in HoloLens. Indeed, Microsoft argues that Brainwave offers 5x less latency than Google's TPUs.

Nadella is pitching the technique as a way for companies to "learn, train on encrypted data".

Azure IoT Edge is Microsoft's cloud service that is created to give users insights from the rapidly growing amount of data collected by simple sensors and computers situated at the edge of networks - without having to send that data for central processing.

To that end, the company today announced a five-year, US$25 million commitment aimed at harnessing the power of AI for people with disabilities.

Microsoft also partnered with Qualcomm (qcom) on a new software developer kit to let coders build devices like cameras that can recognize objects.

The company is expected to reveal more details about the improvements to its AI platform. The branding also includes things like the Microsoft launcher for Android, Your Phone app that works with iOS and Android, Edge on iOS and Android; the umbrella brand stretches far and wide across the Microsoft landscape.

While every single presentation at the Build 2017 conference was in some way related to crowd, it's clear that Azure is doing well and is here to stay. So it is highly unlikely that Google might discuss the same at the event. In addition to the new Project Kinect for Azure, Microsoft is opening up its other applications for edge devices.
