Microsoft supports and invests in the open source ecosystem in many ways. One such effort has been the Free and Open Source Software Fund Program (FOSS) Fund program, which has historically relied on employee nominations and voting to determine sponsorships of our dependencies.  This month, we were excited to experiment with advancements in this program and of our capabilities through a data-driven approach.   This experiment focused on programmatically selecting a sampling of dependencies for bulk sponsorship through GitHub Sponsors.

Open sourcing MS-DOS 4.0 
Microsoft Open Source Blog
by Scott Hanselman and Jeff Wilcox
2w ago
Ten years ago, Microsoft released the source for MS-DOS 1.25 and 2.0 to the Computer History Museum, and then later republished them for reference purposes. This code holds an important place in history and is a fascinating read of an operating system that was written entirely in 8086 assembly code nearly 45 years ago.  Today, in partnership with IBM and in the spirit of open innovation, we’re releasing the source code to MS-DOS 4.00 under the MIT license. There’s a somewhat complex and fascinating history behind the 4.0 versions of DOS, as Microsoft partnered with IBM for portions of the ..read more

2w ago
In-browser machine learning (ML) enables web applications to execute machine learning models entirely client-side in the browser. As a key player of on-device AI, it has garnered significant interest thanks to advantages in privacy protection, enhanced portability, as well as cost and latency savings by eliminating client-server communication. Nevertheless, the rise of large generative models brings a challenge for in-browser ML, as executing these models demands increased computational power and memory resources.  ONNX Runtime Web is the web-inference solution offered in ONNX Runtime.

Exploring DragGAN implementation using ONNX Runtime
Microsoft Open Source Blog
by Baiju Meswani and Ran Gal
2w ago
Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are deep learning architectures that generate high quality synthetic images of people, animals or objects around us. These networks have enabled us to provide text-based prompts for generating realistic images, modifying existing images and to complete missing information in training datasets. StyleGAN is a type of GAN designed to control the style of the generated images for high quality and detailed results. Once such realistic images are created, any minor tweaks or updates can be performed through the DragGAN model, which allows minor edits to the gen ..read more
