Microsoft announces April 3 registration date for Ignite conference

Microsoft today announced registration for their annual Ignite conference will open up on April 3rd. The company promises attendees can learn more about the future of business tech, quantum computing, AI, and more during the September 24-28 event in Orlando, Florida.

Those interested in attending can sign up for event updates now, and get email alerts for when registration opens up on April 3rd. Microsoft points to the following top trends which will likely be discussed at Ignite 2018.

  • Tackling unsolvable problems with quantum computing:  Microsoft is developing a quantum computer, unique cryogenic control plane, and software stack for programming that others can harness for problem-solving.
  • Increasing understanding with AI-assisted language translation: When paired with additional data, a type of AI called long short-term memory for speech recognition can increase the quality of translations significantly. Learn more at Microsoft Ignite.
  • Exploring superpowers with mixed reality: At Microsoft Ignite, we’ll explore how mixed reality is redefining how work gets done. Across a diverse array of industries—manufacturing, architecture and engineering, healthcare, defense, retail, and education

Last year Ignite was also held in Orlando and went on as planned despite the devastation left behind by Hurricane Irma. Ignite was exciting last year as we got an official Office 2019 announcement, and heard more about Windows 10 S devices. As always, we will be bringing you all the news live from Orlando come September, so be sure to keep tuned for more!
