At the Build 2018 annual developer conference, Microsoft showcased several new technologies to help every developer adopt AI for Microsoft Azure, Microsoft 365 and across any platform.

The change from 70 percent to 95 percent is a little better than what Google offers to Play Store app developers and Apple to its App Store app developers.

Microsoft has already developed several accessibility technologies including Microsoft Translator - a real time captioning service, Helpicto - an application that turns voice commands into images, and Seeing AI and auto alt-textfeatures which help narrate the world for people who are blind or low vision. With the DJI SDK for Microsoft, drones can stream real-time video to a computer, and use Azure IoT Edge artificial intelligence to analyze and interpret the footage, Sam George, director of Microsoft's Azure IoT Engineering, said during the presentation.
