 Microsoft developer conference opens tonight. What new products are you looking for?


1. more attention to artificial intelligence (AI) In the past few years, Microsoft has never stopped discussing the word AI. Now it seems that this is not just a marketing gimmick. We are expected to hear more about WindowsML, which is exposed along with last months Windows10 update. It allows developers to use pre trained AI programs in their own applications, which can be run locally or in Azure cloud. WindowsML can also take advantage of the hardware acceleration trend from GPU, which is the most likely thing for Build attendees. Microsoft has made great progress in introducing AI to its consumer products recently. Its virtual assistant Cortana is becoming more and more intelligent, and it will definitely be more useful on desktop than apple Siri. In addition, AI is also becoming the core of its translation application Translator. Even offline, this application can now access AI. At the same time, Microsofts chat robot ice in China has also learned how to interrupt the dialogue politely, making it more like a natural speaker, not a voice driven computer. We still have a long way to go from the super intelligent AI of Hollywood, but these fragments are forming the next generation of computer systems. 2.Windows10 and the evolving MicrosoftGraph By introducing the time axis (Timeline) in Windows10, Microsoft not only creates a way to track your work on multiple PC, but also to track your iPhone or Android devices. So far, this function is mainly limited to synchronizing your Edge browsing history and using Office365 applications on Android. But in the past, Microsoft has hinted that the impact of the timeline will eventually be more profound. At the Build conference, we can expect to hear more about how timeline will be improved. It is interesting to know how to integrate the timeline better with iOS. After all, iOS is very restrictive in third party integration. In addition, MicrosoftGraph is evolving. Of course, we will definitely know more about other functions of Windows10. Keep in mind that Microsoft has promised to update the operating system regularly instead of updating the Windows version every year (or even longer) as it used to. First of all, we might hear more about sets, which is an experimental feature that allows you to run applications on labels, similar to web browsers. Microsoft has not talked much about it since its launch last year, but developers need to better understand it before it can be introduced into the application. 3.Windows mixed reality After the launch of Windows mixed reality (MixedReality) last fall, Microsoft was strangely quiet in the VR and AR fields, in addition to a series of helmets issued by personal computer makers such as HP, Acer and Samsung. But maybe thats not surprising. In just a few months, the price of many helmets dropped significantly, which clearly shows that these products are not selling well. At the Build conference, Microsoft will have the opportunity to persuade developers to give an opportunity to mixed reality. 4. look forward to Azure Looking at several recent earnings reports released by Microsoft, one thing is particularly clear: its cloud computing business is booming. So if the company spends a lot of time discussing how to make Azure better suited to developers, dont be surprised. To a large extent, consumers will not directly notice this. But for brands and enterprises, this is another way to ensure their application and online services are stable, safe and able to withstand potential demand shocks.
