Taking advantage of AI easily with Azure Cognitive Services

Mobile .NET Developers Philippines, Manila, Philippines
25 Jun 2019

1Data Science and Artificial Intelligence are fascinating areas of computing. Microsoft is betting a lot on these new technologies, but we are also aware that data scientists are highly trained professionals, and that not every software developer can create and maintain complex data models, perform linear algebra or purchase expensive GPU rigs to run these models. This is exactly why we created Cognitive services. This suite of services offers pre-trained models that you can use out-of-the-box to...

Die ethischen Implikationen und Risiken von Artificial Intelligence und Deep Learning

Experts Live Switzerland, Bern, Switzerland
20 Jun 2019

Es steht ausser Frage, dass Künstliche Intelligenz und Deep Learning in Zukunft (und auch bereits in der Gegenwart) der Menschheit eine wichtige Rolle spielen werden. Durch die Nutzung immer schnellerer Computer, immer grösserer Datenbanken sind wir in der Lage, sehr komplexe Algorithmen gegen riesige Datenmengen auszuführen. Dies ermöglicht die Schaffung von Werkzeugen, die in komplexen Bereichen unseres Lebens helfen können: Von autonomen Fahrzeugen bis hin zur Bild- und Spracherkennung, von d...

.NET Standard, .NET Core, why and how?

VS Live Boston, Boston, MA
13 Jun 2019

1.NET Standard is the new way to create portable assemblies. After learning about portable class libraries in the past years, it is now time to upgrade our game and start coding for Linux, Mac OS and other platforms in addition to Windows. More and more libraries are getting ported to .NET Standard, sometimes really easily and sometimes more painfully. In this session, Laurent Bugnion, the creator of the popular open source MVVM Light Toolkit, will help you understand why .NET Standard can benefi...

Fast Focus: Serverless Computing - Azure Functions and Xamarin in 20 Minutes

VS Live Boston, Boston, MA
12 Jun 2019

1One of the most exciting recent additions to Azure is called Functions and it allows the developer to quickly build and deploy code to the cloud without a complicated setup. Also dubbed 'serverless computing', Azure Functions can be triggered by timers, HTTP calls or database operations, and can communicate with other Azure services or mobile and desktop applications such as those made with Xamarin. In this lightning talk, Laurent Bugnion, cloud developer advocate for Microsoft, will give you an...

The Ethical Implications and Risks of AI and Deep Learning

.NET Day Switzerland, Zurich, Switzerland
28 May 2019

There is no question that Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning will play an important role in the future (and the present!) of humanity. Taking advantage of faster and faster computers, larger and larger databases, we are able to run very complex algorithms against humongous amounts of data. This allows the creation of tools that can help us in complex areas of our lives. From autonomous vehicles to image and speech recognition, from assisting impaired humans to saving lives in critical sit...
