Windows 10, now using machine learning to stop updates installation when a PC is in use

To be honest, one thing about the Windows 10 that is really frustrating is that when you’re using it, the operating system then begins to install updates. Even though for some time Microsoft has done a few things to stop this update installation with features that snooze installation, users of the Windows 10 are continuously complaining about updates saying that they reboot devices while they are being used.


In reaction to this feedback from users, Microsoft has stated that it is aware of the issues. Chief Dona Sarkar, Microsoft’s Windows Insider in a comment said, “We heard you, and to alleviate this pain, if you have an update pending we’ve updated our reboot logic to use a new system that is more adaptive and proactive.” According to software giant, it has trained a “predictive model” that will predict accurately when the best time to restart the device is going to be with the help of machine learning. Sarkar also said, “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.”

Microsoft has for some time been running some tests on this new model within its four walls and the company reports that it has seen results that are encouraging. The software giant has been updating the model by and by since it is cloud-based and now it is opening up to Windows Insiders so as to get extra feedback and testing. Testers of the Windows 10 will start seeing the latest model in the soon to arrive Redstone 5 and 19H1 updates that has been released to Insiders. By the time the Microsoft update model is eventually fixed, the most frustrating aspect of the Windows 10 would at long last be brought to an end.
