Burger said Microsoft's Brainwave service will provide the fastest analysis of images using one of the most common AI neural networks for such a task - a almost instantaneous response.

Microsoft announced a joint effort with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. to create a vision AI developer kit running Azure IoT Edge. Combining Microsoft's industry-defining Time of Flight sensor with additional sensors all in a small, power-efficient form factor, Project Kinect for Azure will leverage the richness of Azure AI to dramatically improve insights and operations. The Kinect was ahead of its time, but it's cool to see the technology behind it is still making its mark.
