Building real-time image classifiers for mobile apps with Azure Custom Vision

 
English Intermediate AI & Machine Learning

Azure Custom Vision allows you to create powerful image classifiers in minutes to without having to be an AI expert. You feed the service with images -so the service adapts to your own needs-, tag them and train a model that can be published to an endpoint URL for further requests. You can also use the Custom Vision SDK to automatize the process. Furthermore, this model can also be exported for offline, real-time classification experiences. For instance, you can embed the classifier into a mobile application, or a website. In this session, the Custom Vision service will be described. An image classifier will be created by using the .NET SDK and thousands of images. The output model will be exported to both Tensorflow and CoreML to integrate it into an Android and iOS mobile applications, respectively.

Microsoft MVP, Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer

Hello! My name is Luis. I'm a Microsoft MVP in Developer Technologies and Artificial Intelligence, Xamarin Certified Mobile Developer, and lecturer at Instituto Tecnológico de Celaya in Mexico. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Engineering Informatics at Tomas Bata University in Zlin, Czech Republic. I am a fan of software development, particularly mobile apps with Xamarin integrated with cloud computing services, such as Azure. Moreover, Artificial Intelligence is amazing and one of my favorite topics! I've been developing .NET apps for more than 10 years. I find C# a really powerful language which allow us to create different kinds of software. I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, either at writing a blog post or streaming an online session. Of course, activities such as talking for a conference and answering peeps' questions in social networks are included as well.
