In the first place, it is important to efficiently analyze and process larger amounts of data. To facilitate this, the upcoming major Windows 10 update will support, among other things, the hardware acceleration of AI algorithms. The Windows ML API, which is provided for the development of AI applications, is to cooperate among other things with corresponding co-processors, which will certainly be found more and more frequently in PCs and notebooks in the future.

Windows ML is also being extended to allow programmers to take a hybrid approach.Training an AI can then be done in the Azure cloud. Subsequently, the analysis model, which the software has developed in the complex process, can be integrated into local applications via the API and can then also be used without an existing connection to a data center.
