Last month Microsoft released a new update for its operating system – Windows 10 21H1. It is small and installs on computers running Windows 10 2004 or 20H2 almost as quickly as monthly cumulative updates. At the moment, its deployment is limited through “Windows Update”, but not all users can update yet. The company usually does this in the first weeks after release to ensure that updates are downloaded reliably. Most interestingly, the software giant first started using machine learning to improve the delivery of updates to users’ computers.
“We’ve also started the first phase of rolling out machine learning updates to devices running Windows 10 2004 so that they can automatically update to version 21H1. We will continue to explore this technology at all stages to ensure smarter and smoother upgrades to newer versions of Windows 10, ”according to the Microsoft website.
The first phase will test machine learning on devices running Windows 10 2004, which are automatically updated to the latest system update. Microsoft plans to use this technology in the future to improve update delivery by intelligently deploying updates and simplifying the process.
Machine learning, according to the company, should improve the Windows 10 update process. This approach helps Microsoft to more quickly detect and fix potential errors, as well as prevent the propagation of problematic updates until they are fixed.
