Microsoft "hybrid loop" shows the foundation for AI-powered client / cloud computing

If there's ever a place where you're likely to hear the direction that computing and applications are headed, Microsoft's developer-focused Build conference is probably it. True to form, this year's Build featured several interesting new concepts that managed to provide a sense of where Microsoft's vision for software is headed, while simultaneously hinting strongly at some key technologies (most notably Arm-based processors) that they believe will be necessary to power that future.

 

For hybrid applications, the cloud is meant to be seen as an additional computing resource, much like a GPU can be used in addition to the core CPU powering a typical PC. For example, these types of apps would be able to make decisions at runtime whether to do AI inferencing on the client devices or on the Azure cloud.

 

In addition, because most of these new apps are likely to incorporate some level of AI within them, they're also expected to be able to leverage NPU (Neural Processing Units) or other types of AI hardware accelerators. Thus, hybrid apps and the hybrid loop concept can be written to leverage a local device's CPU, GPU and NPU and, as needed or directed, also use cloud-based computing resources.

Sounds like Microsoft is going to remain competitive in the cloud space. Not at all a surprise.
