Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella along with Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Microsoft Cloud and Enterprise Group, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Microsoft engineers will present their broader overview of company's forays into emerging technologies.
"With over 50 regions, Azure is now the world's computer - more than any other Cloud provider", Nadella said.
To begin with, Microsoft is now open sourcing its Azure IoT Edge Runtime platform for developers.

Special Forces arrived in the Philippines to assist local troops in their fight against Islamic militants backed by ISIS. It's the second under President Rodrigo Duterte, who at the start of his term threatened to end the military exercises.
In addition to the above, Microsoft is also looking to bring the power of Azure DevOps services to Github customers. This could make Microsoft a more appealing platform for oil and gas, general contracting, and other industries that make heavy use of connected devices in the field. The company also took this opportunity to announce that its new Windows 10 feature called Timeline is arriving for Microsoft Edge on Android and iOS. Using applications written for Windows 10 PCs, DJI drones can be customized and controlled for a wide variety of industrial uses, with full flight control and real-time data transfer capabilities, making drone technology accessible to Windows 10 customers numbering almost 700 million globally. Data is being collected from aerial and ground sensors and analyzed using artificial intelligence models running on the Azure IoT Edge platform.
The Kinect tech's last appearance was within the HoloLens augmented reality headset, which is now with developers ahead of a potential consumer launch down the road. This can enable fully articulated hand tracking and high fidelity spatial mapping, enabling a new level of precision solutions. What I am really interested to see, however, is how developers make use of Microsoft's Project Kinect for Azure on their products.
Microsoft has been using Intel FPGAs to improve performance and efficiencies of Bing and Azure for the last few years. Second, Microsoft's Edge browser on iOS will soon be able to access Timeline. Microsoft is also expanding its Sets experience to third-party apps, allowing users to group apps together in a tabbed interface. Microsoft 365, combined with insights from the Microsoft Graph, empowers developers to build intelligent applications.
