Microsoft Build 2018: AI, Azure, Windows 10 and all other expected announcements

The forthcoming.NET Core 3 will support desktop applications on Windows

So it's a surprise to see Microsoft use its annual Build conference to unveil Project Kinect for Azure - an updated version with a "next-generation depth camera" and a processor suited for artificial intelligence.

Microsoft has also joined hands with Qualcomm for a vision AI platform on Azure IoT edge. This will allow devices such as drones to take important actions without connecting to the cloud.

Nadella talked about Microsoft's Project Kinect for Azure, and said that the new hardware device has "some of the best skeletal tracking object recognition", which could make it useful as a tool to incorporate on drones so they can avoid obstacles.

With the demo, the company is also seeking to show that Windows 10 PCs can work as Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

The Cloud Act was backed by Microsoft and much of the tech industry, but criticized by some digital privacy organizations for not going far enough to protect consumers.

In addition to routine updates to Windows 10, the company is expected to announce new AI features and integrations, new tools for business applications using its Azure cloud-computing platform, and progress reports on last year's announcements, including its Fluent Design interface.

I can't say more without spoiling the movie, but Thanos is now tied for my favorite movie bad-guy, right next to Darth Vader. It was absolutely gut-wrenching to watch him do just that with the snap of his Gauntlet's fingers.

The chips will initially be available within Microsoft's Azure machine learning service for 42 cents an hour.

While Microsoft is making a public push with FPGAs, Burger wouldn't say if the company is also following Google's lead in building its own chips to accelerate AI workloads in data centers.

Past year at Build, Microsoft officials talked up the edge-computing piece of the company's evolving "intelligent cloud/intelligent edge" strategy. A Speech Devices SDK was also rolled out today. Over time, Microsoft will give developers direct access to the chips, said Burger, who is also a distinguished engineer at the company.

For developers, Microsoft announced it is open sourcing its Azure IoT Edge runtime, and that the Custom Vision Azure Cognitive Service will run on Azure IoT edge. And a new Azure Blockchain Workbench helps developers to build out an Azure-supported blockchain network using such services as Azure AD and SQL.

DJI's new SDK for Windows empowers developers to build native Windows applications that can remotely control DJI drones including autonomous flight and real-time data streaming.
