Windows 10 Now Runs On 700 Million Devices

In addition to the new Project Kinect for Azure, Microsoft is opening up its other applications for edge devices.

Through this partnership, DJI is releasing a software development kit (SDK) for Windows that extends the power of commercial drone technology to the largest enterprise developer community in the world.

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.

Microsoft has also joined hands with Qualcomm for a vision AI platform on Azure IoT edge. This builds on the company's commitment to developers and open source.

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. IntelliCode provides intelligent suggestions to improve code quality and productivity and is available in preview today in Visual Studio.

"The era of the intelligent cloud and intelligent edge is upon us", said Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft.

The appeal of running Event Grid, Microsoft's event routing service, at the edge is also pretty obvious, given that it'll allow developers to connect services with far lower latency than if all the data had to run through a remote data center. The company has unveiled two Windows 10 iOS apps that will make it easier for your iPhone to work with your PC. "Using our new SDK, Windows developers will soon be able to employ drones, AI and machine learning technologies to create intelligent flying robots that will save businesses time and money, and help make drone technology a mainstay in the workplace". 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.

A new "Your Phone" experience that enables a window into a user's phone right from their PC for instant access to text messages, photos and notifications.
