#AI – #AISchool, Free OnLine Training for Artificial Intelligence

Hi!

One of the questions that I always ask in AI talks is how to start learning AI? Here the answer is not an easy one. There are online resources such as EDx or Coursera which offer very complete courses, lasting several weeks. At some point I will probably share my experience about this platforms.

Another option is Artificial Intelligence School, that I particularly like more for several reasons

  • It is focused for programmers, I mean developers who create Apps. There are theoretical contents, however, in my experience, the tutorials and practical examples stand out.
  • It has a 100% solution-oriented approach. That is, if you want to add OCR capabilities to an App, you have a 12-hour Learning Path on how to build a DNN model to do this. To compensate, you also have a 2-hour Learning Path that shows how to perform OCR using Cognitive Services.
  • The contents are very varied. From how to use Natural Processing Language Apps in Azure, arriving at theoretical contents oriented on how to use Visual Studio Code for AI

I could name some other reasons, but I think it is best to recommend this site and share the comparison in OCR hours with DNN and OCR with Cognitive Services..

#AI – #AISchool, cursos gratuitos de Inteligencia Artificial OnLine

Buenas!

Una de las preguntas que siempre me hacen en las charlas de AI, es ¿cómo empezar a aprender AI? Aquí la respuesta es variada, ya que hay recursos como EDx o Coursera que ofrecen cursos muy completos, de varias semanas de duración. En algún momento escribiré mi experiencia al respecto.

Otra opción es Artificial Intelligence School, que particularmente me gusta más por varios motivos

  • Esta orientada a programadores, a desarrolladores que crean Apps. Hay contenidos teóricos, sin embargo, en mi experiencia, sobresalen los tutoriales y ejemplos prácticos.
  • Tiene un enfoque 100% orientado a soluciones. Es decir, si quieres agregar capacidades de OCR a una App, tienes un Learning Path de 12 horas sobre cómo construir un modelo DNN para realizar esto. Para compensar, también tienes un Learning Path de 2 horas que muestra como realizar OCR utilizando Cognitive Services.
  • Los contenidos son muy variados. Desde cómo utilizar Natural Processing Language Apps en Azure, llegando a contenidos teóricos orientados sobre como utilizar Visual Studio Code for AI.

Podria nombrar algunos motivos mas, pero creo que lo mejor es recomendar este site y compartir la comparativa en horas de OCR con DNN y OCR con Cognitive Services.

#Event – Introduction to Microsoft AI (Full House !!!)

giphy

Hi!

Back to event mode and this time along with Asmita (Data Solution Architect, Microsoft Canada) to share some experiences on working with Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence platform. As usually happens in these cases, she is the expert and I will only bring my point of view and my experience as a developer using and learning about these services.

The event is next March 21st thanks to the Metro Toronto .Net User Group. More details below

Introduction to Microsoft AI

Asmita and Bruno as duo will walk through the Microsoft AI platform and capabilities to allow any developer to infuse intelligence into their applications and target entirely new scenarios enabled by the latest innovations in AI. You’ll learn about API’s that provide object recognition, face detection and identification, emotion recognition, OCR, computer vision, video services, language understanding, sentiment analysis and more. They will also demonstrate how you can add customized intelligence to your solution or leverage AI services in conjunction with the Microsoft Bot Service.

Buenas!

Vuelta a los eventos y esta vez junto con Asmita (Data Solution Architect, Microsoft Canada) para hablar sobre la plataforma de Artificial Intelligence de Microsoft. Como suele suceder en estos casos, ella es la experta y yo solo aportare mi punto de vista y experiencia como developer utilizando y aprendiendo sobre estos servicios.

El evento es el próximo 21 de Marzo para Metro Toronto .Net User Group. Mas detalles a continuación

#Event – Introduction to Microsoft Cognitive Services at Hack The Valley 2!

Hi!

You should start by congratulating the winners of the hackathon at Hack the Valley 2. Spending time with them has been great! As always, time to share the materials of my session. In this case only a couple of slides, since it was a session where I have helped more to understand how to use CS than to talk about them.

Happy Coding!

#Event – Introduction a Microsoft Cognitive Services en Hack The Valley 2!

Buenas!

Debería comenzar felicitando a los ganadores del hackathon en https://hackvalley2.com. ¡Pasar un rato con ellos ha sido grandioso! Como siempre, momento de compartir los materiales de mi sesión. En este caso solo un par de slides, ya que ha sido una sesión donde he ayudado mas a comprender como utilizar CS que a hablar de los mismos.

Happy Coding!

#Event – Materials used on the session: #Minecraft for developers – Learning to code and advanced #AI

Hi!

Yesterday night, I had an amazing time with my friends from Canada Technology Triangle .Net User Group, so now it is the time to share the materials I used during the presentation. Let’s start with the slides

Source Code (link)

All the references and links of the materials that you comment during the session can be seen in the slides. And I have a pending task to improve the way I present Project Malmo 😀

Happy coding!

Buenas!

Después de pasar un excelente rato con los amigos de Canada Technology Triangle .Net User Group  llega el momento de compartir los materiales que utilice durante la sesión. Comenzando por las slides

Y el código fuente que se puede descargar desde aquí (link)

Todas las referencias y links de los materiales que comente durante la sesión se pueden ver en las slides. Y tengo como tarea pendiente mejorar la forma en la que presento Project Malmo 😀

Happy coding!

#Event – Less than 7 days to #Minecraft for Developers: Learning to Rock, Code and advanced #ArtificialIntelligence

giphy

Hi!

Friendly reminder for next week event on AI. My friends of the Canada Technology Triangle. Net User Group give me the opportunity to mix in a single session some amazing topics like Rock and Roll, Minecraft and Artificial Intelligence.

Until today, I know what to share on how to use Minecraft to teach how to program,
and how to create AIs for Minecraft. I have to work in the Rock and Roll part!

If after reading the description of the event you are still interested, it is best to shop around Kitchener next February 21:

Minecraft for developers: Learning to code and advanced AI

You probably know Minecraft as a fun game about placing blocks and going on adventures. If you switch to a developer mode, you can think on how easy will be to control the Minecraft environment. Send simple actions like “move forward” or “turn left” will allow a programmer to control an agent. This is also an amazing opportunity to use Minecraft as a tool to teach to code.

During this session we will review a set of tools we can use to control Minecraft environments. The tools and sample will be focused on how to have fun with Minecraft and how we can use this tools to learn to code. We will also review some advanced scenarios using Visual Studio 2017, where we can create an Artificial Intelligence scenario to automatic solve mazes, avoid lava, and train and learn with an agent.

Buenas!

Un amable reminder porque en menos de una semana estare con los amigos de Canada Technology Triangle .Net User Group con la Gibson (Rock and Roll) Minecraft e Inteligencia Artificial.

Por ahora tengo claro que mostrare como utilizar Minecraft para enseñar a programar, y como crear AIs para Minecraft. Tengo que trabajar en la parte del Rock and Roll!

Si después de leer la descripción del evento todavía te interesa, lo mejor es darse una vuelta por Kitchener el próximo 21 de Febrero:
