Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is hoping to make things easier for developers when it comes to working with artificial intelligence models. The Seattle-based tech giant has introduced a new tool that will help make that happen.
Techcrunch has the news on the new release from Microsoft.
Microsoft today announced its AI Platform for Windows developers, a new set of tools that will soon help developers to bring the machine learning models they trained in the cloud to their desktop apps. The AI platform in Windows 10, which will launch with the next major version of Windows, will make use of the GPU on your local machine and allows developers to run their models in real time and without the need for a round trip to the cloud.
When using the new tool, developers will now have the flexibility to work with their models in the cloud and then subsequently integrate the models with their desktop apps while using their preferred framework. In short, it sounds like productivity is about to be kicked up a notch for developers working in the Windows environment.
“What we are building really completes the story for Microsoft from an AI perspective,” Microsoft Partner Group program manager Kam VedBrat explained to Techcrunch.
Microsoft Corporation shares were trading at $95.05 per share on Thursday morning, up $1.19 (+1.27%). Year-to-date, MSFT has gained 11.64%, versus a 2.53% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
