Microsoft has shown A.I. image recognition demos before, both using Cortana and services like Project Murphy, but this is the first time the company has demonstrated how the technology could be leveraged in the work place, in real time, using regular video cameras.
Microsoft's new technology, demonstrated at Build 2017, can intelligently interpret visual scenes using every day video cameras.
A couple of the examples Microsoft used for this demonstration included cameras identifying a chemical spill in a factory, violating safety policies. It also helped guide a nurse to a patient waiting for a wheelchair, and also helped to locate a qualified worker to move a specialized piece of equipment.
Developers will be able to leverage Microsoft's platform to create their own systems to do virtually anything, using existing camera infrastructure available within an organization.
Stay tuned to Windows Central for more from Build 2017.
