It's an intriguing idea that could inspire a new generation of people to explore
the cosmos. Microsoft hopes to launch WWT, currently in private alpha, some
time in the spring.
One interesting side note: The genesis of the project comes from work by former
Microsoft Research Fellow Jim Gray, who went
missing last year while sailing outside the San Francisco Bay.
Gray was well-regarded for his work in the area of database and transaction
systems. With WWT evolving from Gray's work on the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
and the SkyServer project, it would seem that we're still benefiting from Gray's
efforts, long after his passing.

Decision trees are useful for relatively small datasets that have a relatively simple underlying structure, and when the trained model must be easily interpretable, explains Dr. James McCaffrey of Microsoft Research, who provides step-by-step instructions and full source code.
Microsoft has open sourced an internal incubation project that can help developers integrate cutting-edge AI models quickly and easily into their apps.
Power Platform "is reinventing software development with AI-powered no-code development."
There are a raft of minor improvements for the brand-new Visual Studio 2022 v17.6 Preview 2, with accompanying release notes revealing that the IDE is ditching the baked-in Edge Developer Tools
