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

Microsoft Answers Post

The offering is aimed at bringing AI to solutions for the edge and will be available next year.

Available today, the new Microsoft Azure Blockchain Workbench makes it easier to develop blockchain applications by stitching together an Azure-supported blockchain network with cloud services like Azure Active Directory, Key Vault and SQL Database, reducing proof-of-concept development time dramatically. Adaptive Cards are now supported within Microsoft 365. Furthermore, it noted that if the application was purchased via a referral by the company - be it online advertising or similar methods - the share will drop to 85:15 in favor of the developer. Microsoft Azure also now has a unified Speech service which offers improved speech recognition and text-to-speech. Through this developers can create camera-based IoT solutions by using Azure services and hardware from Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform and AI Engine.

The company has also teamed up with Qualcomm to launch an AI developer kit for on-device inferencing on the edge.

Microsoft is aiming to open up new opportunities for developers in the Microsoft 365 platform, with a handful of announcements at Build 2018.

Ex-Olympic table tennis champion surprised with formation of joint Korean team
In the semifinals, the Korea team will play the victor of the quarterfinal between Ukraine and Japan. North Korea boycotted the 1986 Asian Games and the 1988 Olympics, both held in Seoul.

The appeal of running Event Grid, Microsoft's event routing service, at the edge is also pretty obvious, given that it'll allow developers to connect services with far lower latency than if all the data had to run through a remote data center. 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. In addition, the new Windows Machine Learning platform will let developers create machine-learning models in the cloud, and deploy them offline to Windows.

But an even more dramatic development will be the ability to actually see content that lives in your phone right on a desktop window on the PC.

On Android, the Timeline feature will be integrated within the Microsoft Launcher app to support cross-device app launching.
