Microsoft’s ⁢AI‍ Vision Event at Build Conference

Microsoft is set to commence its Build ​conference with ⁣a special event on⁢ May⁤ 20th that will focus on the company’s “AI vision,” as⁤ announced on Monday.

“Satya Nadella will present our AI‌ strategy⁤ for both hardware and ⁣software during a dedicated news⁤ briefing,” the company stated, just prior to the start‌ of Microsoft Build in​ Seattle.⁣ Speculations suggest that the hardware in question could include the ​consumer editions ⁤of the Surface Pro 10 and ‌the⁢ Surface Laptop 6,⁢ equipped with ⁣versions of ‍the Qualcomm Snapdragon X Elite ​(Arm) chip.

The event, however, will not ‌be ‌available for​ live streaming.

It‌ is not unprecedented for​ Microsoft to integrate hardware and⁤ software, particularly‌ with a focus‌ on AI. Surface devices have historically served‌ as⁣ a platform⁣ for showcasing the latest ‍software offerings from‍ Microsoft, whether it’s a new operating system, the ​most recent Office/Microsoft⁣ 365 updates, or AI technologies. Reports ⁣indicate that Microsoft might unveil ⁢an AI-enhanced version of the Timeline app within Windows 11 at the‍ May event. Some AI-driven features, like‌ AI-powered audio, have already been introduced in test‍ builds ⁤of Windows 11.

Competition Between‌ Surface Devices and ‍Intel’s Meteor Lake

Can the Surface ‌Laptop ‌6 and the Surface Pro 10 compete with Intel’s Meteor Lake? Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon processors demonstrated significant⁤ performance during testing late last year. The ‌true competitive edge of these⁤ devices will only be⁤ revealed once they are officially ‍released and ⁤tested.
