As Google IO gradually attracts more consumer audiences, Microsoft seems to be sticking to developers with its Build conferences. This will allow devices such as drones to take important actions without connecting to the cloud.

DJI's SDK is available as part of a beta preview for attendees at Microsoft Build.

As Scott Guthrie, executive vice president at Microsoft, said in a press briefing, Microsoft is answering the question of "how developers can build [applications] today for the rapidly evolving future".

Microsoft is enabling its Custom Vision cognitive service to run on Azure IoT Edge so that devices like drones and industrial equipment can perform vision-related activities even when not connected to the cloud. Microsoft also announced a partnership with GitHub which integrates Visual Studio App Center on the platform.

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. The company says it'll be sharing more on Timeline for Android and iOS in its day two keynote tomorrow at Build, which we'll be watching. The conference this year is emphasizing the company's cloud computing technology and its focus on enabling Microsoft software to be used across devices, not just on Microsoft-created hardware and services. Over time, Microsoft will give developers direct access to the chips, said Burger, who is also a distinguished engineer at the company. The company is also expected to announce deeper AI integration for Office 365 and its Translator app. There will also be a livestream available through dedicated Build 2018 website. In addition, the new Windows Machine Learning platform will let developers create machine-learning models in the cloud, and deploy them offline to Windows.

This will also be coming in a more limited form to iOS if you use Microsoft Edge on iOS, which I would assume is a pretty small percentage of iOS users. The company unveiled a new app, Your Phone, which will provide "a window into a user's phone right from their PC for seamless transition of content like messages, photos and notifications". Earlier this year, we heard that about Microsoft's plans of launching its new AI platform- Microsoft ML alongside the next major Windows 10.
