    9 days ago - By Beta News

    As recently noted by AdDuplex, the Windows 10 1803 rollout is progressing much more smoothly than all previous feature updates.

It's certainly been a huge improvement over the famously slow and problematic Creators Update last year, and part of the reason this rollout has been so successful is down to Microsoft's use of AI and Machine Learning.

  • Windows 10 April 2018 Update now open to all, thanks to machine learning

    9 days ago - By Ars Technica

    We already know that the Windows 10 April 2018 Update has been the most rapidly deployed of the major Windows 10 updates. Microsoft today said a little about how this speed was achieved-and made the update fully available to every Windows 10 system, representing the final stage of the rollout process.

Speaking during an E3 2018 Q&A, Spencer responded to an audience question regarding the state of the Xbox app for...
