Regular Microsoft updates to your Windows 10 PC help ensure that it’s kept secure from possible threats and empowered with the latest features for peak performance and productivity. Because of the wonderful diversity of hardware, devices and applications available to Windows customers, each PC’s update experience may be slightly different. To ensure that all PCs have a seamless update experience—regardless of their differences—we use a combination of testing, close partner engagement, feedback, diagnostic data, and real-life insights to manage quality.
To help with the complexity of the aspects we need to evaluate, we are increasing our investments in machine learning (ML) technologies. Machine learning helps us detect potential issues more quickly and helps us decide the best time to update each PC once a new version of Windows is available.
In this blog, we’ll cover the technical details of how machine learning is used in the rollout of Windows 10 feature updates.
