Microsoft, Holland, Alex Kitman discussed on Gadget Lab Podcast
Is not a new field in the world of mechanical systems. But something that Microsoft is using now using these tiny little mirrors basically to control the angle of the field of you, which means a bigger field of you. And then because Microsoft talks a lot about cloud and edge these days ever since option Adela took over a CEO five years ago. They talked a lot about cloud in a lot about like, Azure, right because Azure, is increasingly important part of Microsoft's business, and so everything's gotta collect connected. The cloud now while it's like, it's like Microsoft buzzwords connect or connect connect with the care connector the see, Azure, cloud. But anyway, so here's the thing. Microsoft claims that they're not going to hype this device, and they didn't hype the first one going. To hype this one because they believe that truly transformative technologies aren't hyped. That's on this is early. True. I remember a lot of hype around the launch of the first hollow lines. But one thing that is true that Microsoft does seem to be a little more focused about who this is four and the kind of customer that they're ultimately building this four and kind of applications they wanna see running on it and what they see the benefit being like running a I proceed on your head. So that's something I got talked to Alex about. So let's listen. I'm speaking with Alex kitman here at Microsoft in Redmond Washington. And I've just taken a look at the new version of hololens Helen's to I'm gonna continue my conversation with Alex. We were just chatting earlier. But for the sake of your listening pleasure. So thanks everybody for joining us, Alex. Thanks so much for being here. Thank you for having me. Okay. So I'm gonna move this microphone between us. And if you if any of you hear any room noise, that's because there are people working here. They didn't just turn Microsoft into my podcast studio for the day. So we were just talking a little bit about how to and how one of the things that you've said frequently throughout the day today is this idea that it's more intelligent now because it's running in the cloud. It's operating in the cloud. What does that mean? Exactly. Because the first version of Holland's was also connected to the internet. Obviously. That's a great question. So yes, Holland's one is is fully Internet-connected hololens to remains fully internet connected. Perhaps a better way to describe. It is to say that hololens two was designed from the ground up to essentially come alive or light up when he comes in contact with Azure, as ROY is Microsoft's intelligent cloud, and with hololens to although there is no requirement that attach is to the Azure, cloud when the two things come together. New magic happens. For example, we run a state of the art industry defining artificial intelligence on hololens for Holland's one hololens to but because they run on battery and because they run on hololens. You are doing things where you think in milliseconds I'm wearing a sensor trying to couch late an eye movement. Couple of milliseconds trying to put a hologram on top of a table couple of milliseconds. But for a lot of experiences example, you're trying to calculate a physics humilation over the entire world. Milliseconds is not a requirement. If this took for example, three four five seconds for you to be able to recalculate the physics of the world. It's not a big deal. So what we've done with Holland's two is partitioned a lot of our workloads between hololens and in our Azure. Cloud to say, hey, the device fully works off-line or connected to to anywhere else with the level of precision, you would expect in an industry defining the vice-like hall lands. But when you couple it with the, Azure, cloud, you just get a bunch of new workloads that open up tend to think about those workloads just being big bigger search spaces or more precise versions, the example, us this morning to share with your with your podcast, folks is, you know, take spatial mapping the the ability. We have to measure the place you're into place a hologram on top of it..
