Build 2018: Everything Microsoft announced for its cloud service, Azure

"Using our new SDK, Windows developers will soon be able to employ drones, AI and machine learning technologies to create intelligent flying robots that will save businesses time and money, and help make drone technology a mainstay in the workplace".

Microsoft has also announced that users will be able to access Timeline on an iPhone with Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft may have killed its Xbox Kinect video game sensor in 2017, but the body-tracking device has since been reborn as a business tool. Microsoft's Azure IoT Edge service uses AI, Azure services and custom logic to deliver cloud intelligence locally on cross-platform IoT devices.

After ending production of the original Kinect hardware for Xbox One last year and the Kinect adapter for the Xbox One earlier this year, no one really expected Kinect to make a comeback.

Azure, Microsoft's cloud computing service has always been tangentially related to the company's burgeoning AI ambitions, but that all changes today. Microsoft's translation tool also offers real-time captioning of conversations.

With the Microsoft Build 2018 keynote in full swing, the company preemptively announced an update to its fee structure - which will reportedly be confirmed by Joe Belfiore during the keynote today - for developers who sell applications on its platform.

SEATTLE-For the second year running, Microsoft is ramping up tie-ins between iOS and Android mobile devices and Windows 10. It includes Microsoft's "most advanced" time-of-flight sensor (used for 3D imaging) and some other new sensors.

On Android, the Redmond-based software major is taking advantage of Microsoft Launcher app to bring the feature. Azure services will be a big component to the developer platform, powering the machine learning, stream analytics and cognitive services - all of which can be downloaded from the cloud to run locally on the edge (aka non-connected AI). And finally, a new Windows feature called Sets will provide "an easier way to organize your stuff and get back to what you were doing"; developers will see their Universal Windows Platform work with Sets "from the start", as a way to help keep customers engaged, Microsoft said.
