Did you know Cognitive Services could do this? A Computer Vision quest (2020-04-25 21:00 EDT)

 
English Intermediate AI & Machine Learning

Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services offer a rich set of features to analyze arbitrary images, detect brand logos, train custom models, index videos, transcribe text in images, and much more. In this session, attendees will see how to combine and use some capabilities of Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services in useful, and possibly unexpected ways. With the power of the Intelligent Cloud, Computer Vision will extract information from a set of images, this information then can be used to automatically generate a specialized Custom Vision model that finally can be used on the intelligent edge devices to annotate the real world in real time. Hands-on demos provide actionable starting points for both developers and decision makers to incorporate democratized deep learning in their own applications. The shown code samples will enable developers to start building right away.

Andreas Erben

This entity is not a Hologram

Andreas spent most of his professional life and a career of over 20 years integrating "backend" applications. First inside or between Enterprises and Startups directly, then - "in the cloud". Before that, Andreas dabbled with Virtual Reality in the 90s. In 2013, he started to work with Kinect for Windows V2 and something wonderful happened - Andreas had new fun with new toys and he was all set to work on new paradigms to interact with computers. Then Microsoft HoloLens was announced and he expanded his focus on Mixed Reality applications and concepts. He cannot stop talking about technology, which apparently some people like so Microsoft gave him the MVP award. Andreas helps customers as a trusted advisor, external CTO and innovation consultant, he also produces exciting applications and solutions with a great team of skilled individuals.

Code of Conduct for live streams

We encourage local organizers to set up and enforce a Code of Conduct for all Global Azure live stream. A good template can be found at https://confcodeofconduct.com/, including internationalized versions at https://github.com/confcodeofconduct/confcodeofconduct.com. An excellent version of a Code of Conduct, not a template, is built by the DDD Europe conference at https://dddeurope.com/2020/coc/.
