Home » News » Microsoft to announce some very exciting AI hardware in the near future

Microsoft’s AI and Research group was initially created back in 2016, and the company transformed it into an important tool in the crucial technology advancements that are required in this field.

This is now one of Microsoft’s  three big engineering groups, the other two being the Experience & Devices division and the Cloud division.

Exciting devices are set to come shortly

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella stated that Harry Shum, the leader of Microsoft’s AI and Research Group, will be working closely with Alex Kipman, the HoloLens inventor and the new leader of AI Perception and Mixed Reality team. Shum explained that Microsoft is preparing some really exciting devices to be launched shortly.

There aren’t any more details available regarding these new devices for now, but Shum said that all of Microsoft’s current actions are AI-infused. The company’s target is to become a leader in the AI field.

Microsoft has been developing its own AI chips for a while

After Shum stated back in 2017 that the new version of HoloLens would feature a dedicated AI co-processor for deep neural networks implementation.

Chief Product Office Panos Panay confirmed that Microsoft is developing its own AI chips for upcoming devices. He also said that the company is working hard to develop chipsets that can bring sensors to life in order to connect people “with each other and with their products.”

We are looking forward to seeing which ones of Microsoft’s products will best highlight AI features. We know that a new version of the HoloLens will probably not hit the market until 2019, but on the other hand, Microsoft could unveil a foldable mobile device and a new Surface Hub digital whiteboard really soon.
