Windows 10 will predict the best time to reboot through machine learning

Originally published at:

Windows 10 will start to predict the right moment to restart the system after installing security updates, Microsoft today announced. There are numerous posts of users on the internet who complain that their system restarted at an inconvenient moment to complete the installation of updates.

Typical dopy Microsoft thinking “let’s do it the hard way”. Why not let the user re-boot when they want? A small nag screen as a reminder. Or, re-boot on shutdown, restart and then close completely. I hate Windows 10

You are absolutely correct. Why we need a machine to predict something when we humans already have the certainty?
Microsoft likes to spend resources in things that are uncertain even when the certain is more than evident.
