How Microsoft wants to turn every developer into an AI developer

A sensor package for building AI-powered IoT solution, called Project Kinect for Azure, was also unveiled at Build.

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. This solution makes available the key hardware and software required to develop camera-based IoT solutions.

Microsoft has also joined hands with Qualcomm for a vision AI platform on Azure IoT edge.

Meanwhile, Microsoft's fast-growing Azure Cosmos DB is getting updates such as new multi-master capabilities (supporting cloud and edge) and enhanced security through the general availability of support for Microsoft's Virtual Network (VNet) service.

Developers are the obvious focal point of Microsoft's annual Build conference. As expected, the company made announcements focusing on emerging tech like artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing and machine learning. IntelliCode provides intelligent suggestions to improve code quality and productivity and is available in preview today in Visual Studio. In addition, Microsoft said that the Visual Studio App Center has now been integrated with GitHub to allow developers to more easily automate their DevOps processes. 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.

There's a Time of Flight Sensor, IR sensors and Microsoft's next-generation depth camera with a resolution of 1024×1024 (up from 640×480) on board. Similar to Apple's Handoff features, iPhone or iPad owners with Windows 10 PCs will now be able to move between devices and continue where they left off. We're expanding this work to not only bring more Microsoft 365 services across platforms and into applications, but to better connect customers' existing PC experiences with their phones, helping to increase engagement for developers.
