Watch Microsoft's Build 2018 keynote live, here

At Build 2018, Microsoft has today announced that it is bringing support for Windows Timeline to Android and iOS later this year. The camera can also power advanced Azure services, such as machine learning, stream analytics and cognitive services, that can be downloaded from the cloud to run locally on the edge. It'll be interesting to see how Microsoft further implements Timeline on iOS, as it's much harder to integrate with Apple's mobile platform than it is Google's.

Furthermore, this is actually Microsoft's second crack at trying to make the Kinect into a business-focused product.

DJI has also selected Microsoft Azure as its preferred cloud computing partner, taking advantage of Azure's industry leading AI and machine learning capabilities to help turn vast quantities of aerial imagery and video data into actionable insights for thousands of businesses across the globe.

Cortana + Alexa: Microsoft demonstrates Cortana and Alexa running in tandem, the result of an integration agreement first announced a year ago.

In addition, Microsoft talked about its HoloLens mixed reality headset. With Sets, what belongs together stays together, making it easier and faster to create and be productive. Users can also design mixed-reality spaces like room layouts, holograms which can be shared in real-time. The companies hope to create a camera-based IoT solution that can power advanced Azure services like machine learning and cognitive services - which we'll get more into shortly. Also now in preview is the Live Share feature for Visual Studio, which makes it simpler for developers to collaborate with fellow team members in real time. With UWP XAML Islands, developers can access more capable, flexible, powerful XAML controls regardless of which UI stack they use - whether it's Windows Forms, WPF or native Win32.

At Build 2018 today, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella unveiled Project Kinect for Azure.

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. Now every organization can make lovely solutions that empower their customers to do more.
