Following the AI trend, Microsoft also announced a new effort called AI for Accessibility. As part of the commercial partnership, DJI and Microsoft will co-develop solutions leveraging Azure IoT Edge and Microsoft's AI services to enable new scenarios across agriculture, construction, public safety and more.

At Build 2018 today, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella unveiled Project Kinect for Azure. In addition, the new Windows Machine Learning platform will let developers create machine-learning models in the cloud, and deploy them offline to Windows. "Today on an iPhone or iPad, Microsoft Edge browsing sessions are included in the Timeline experience on a Windows 10 PC", Microsoft said in a press release.

Meanwhile, the Android version of the Microsoft Launcher app will include support for discovery of line-of-business apps, as well as IT advisement on configuration, for enterprise users. 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.
