Microsoft Starts Using Machine Learning to Update Windows

If you are a Windows 10 user, you must have faced this problem more than once that it automatically triggers windows update and most of the time when you are middle of something, and the system starts restarting. Well, this is frustrating most of the time.

Microsoft is aware of it, and they have a feature to snooze the installation. But that never solved the problem. Even they added an option to specify a time in which your system remains idle so that it can update itself during that period, but that didn't help either.

Now they came with a "predictive model" that can accurately predict the time period in which they can update your system using machine learning.
“We will not only check if you are currently using your device before we restart, but we will also try to predict if you had just left the device to grab a cup of coffee and return shortly after,” says Dona Sarkar, Microsoft's Windows Insider Chief.

Microsoft says they have tested and found better results and expect this approach will help users. The new predictive model is available with the latest Redstone 5 and 19H1 Insider update. Hope we will never see the restarting screen abruptly while using the system.
