DJI And Microsoft Partner To Bring Advanced Drone Technology To The Enterprise

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

The firm also unveiled Windows Machine Learning, which it described in a press release as "a new platform that enables developers to easily develop machine learning models in the intelligent cloud and then deploy them offline and in high performance to the PC platform".

Meanwhile, Microsoft's Custom Vision service - which enables devices to recognise content in imagery - will now run on Azure IoT Edge.

Microsoft's has long empowered developers to achieve more, and today at Build 2018, the company shared the next step in that mission.

The Project Kinect for Azure will combine the depth sensor with Azure AI services to help developers make more precise devices that use less power.

Team-ups aside, Microsoft is also bringing Project Kinect back, but this time for Azure.

Microsoft Edge is a redesigned version of Internet Explorer.


Microsoft has also updated its Bot Framework, which when combined with its new Cognitive Services updates, will enhance the next generation of conversational bots.

DJI's SDK is available as part of a beta preview for attendees at Microsoft Build. One notable update is that the company is patterning up with GitHub, to help developers automate their DevOps processes from right within the service without ever leaving GitHub. Through this developers can create camera-based IoT solutions by using Azure services and hardware from Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform and AI Engine.

Regardless, it's great to see Microsoft committed to bringing Windows 10 integrations to Android and iOS users. To start, the company is aiming to make it easier for developers to customize experiences in Microsoft Teams with new and updated Teams APIs in the Microsoft Graph, as well as the ability to publish custom apps to the Teams app store.

A few other notable announcements from Microsoft's event include a new AI for Accessibility program to help improve development of AI for people with disabilities.

On Android, the Timeline feature will be integrated within the Microsoft Launcher app to support cross-device app launching.

The company hasn't said when developers will be able to get their hands on Project Kinect to integrate it to their own devices and services, but we'll let you know when we find out more.
