Cognition for applications - Cognitive Services and Mixed Reality in action

 
English Advanced AI & Machine Learning

Cognition is defined as acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experiences, and the senses. This summarizes very well what can be accomplished when using Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services and Mixed Reality capabilities together. In this session, the presenter uses those services together enabling advanced scenarios. Cognitive Services allow understanding the environment, combined with Mixed Reality services, this understanding maps to locations in the real world. This allows to create completely new spatially aware experiences. Example code and demos will show both decision makers and software developers of all types what is possible, and how to start implementing in their organizations.

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.
