Microsoft Research is always working on some very innovative technology and ideas for all Microsoft hardware and software. With FALCON (Fast App Launching with Context) the group is focusing on context-based application launching.
Ideally, FALCON will collect analytical data such as the time, location, and application access patterns of the user. That data will then be used to ultimately pre-load application content, reducing memory consumption and speeding up application launch. FALCON will also eventually learn which applications to launch and when to launch them for the user of the device.
Technology like this would truly bring even more convenience and technology to Microsoft devices. Imagine using your Windows Phone and simply waking up in the morning, dismissing the alarm and then watch your Windows Phone automatically open your weather application, news application, and even run some background music too. Truly amazing and something to look forward to.
No information on when, and if, Microsoft Research plans to test FALCON on any software/devices.
