#VSCode – Visual Studio Code Tools for #AI available at Visual Studio Marketplace @code

Hi!

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is one of those new holidays that I need to learn, now that we are all living in the North. Just as I have to get used to spending more and more time in Visual Studio Code. It’s just because for simple tasks in Python, the experience with this IDE is great.

Well, a few days ago I realized that we also have [Visual Studio Tools for AI] in a specific version for VSCode.

Visual Studio MarketPlace: Visual Studio Code Tools for AI

As always, installation is a very simple process

Once the extension is installed, you may want to spend some time to review that all requirements of the development environment are correctly installed. Mostly focus on drivers and Paths, IMHO they can give you some very not happy times.

This is why it’s worthwhile to spend some time following this links

From here I think I will encourage my first real steps with Deep Learning!

Happy coding!

Buenas!

Feliz día de acción de gracias! Hoy es uno de esos festivos nuevos a los que tengo que acostumbrarme en el Norte. Así como tengo que acostumbrarme a pasar bastante tiempo en VSCode. Es solo porque para tareas simples en Python, la experiencia con este IDE es genial.

Pues bien, hoy me he enterado de que [Visual Studio Tools for AI] también tiene su version para VSCode.

Visual Studio MarketPlace: Visual Studio Code Tools for AI

Como siempre la instalación es un proceso muy simple

Una vez instalada la extensión, es conveniente repasar que todos los requerimientos del entorno de desarrollo estén instalados y bien configurados (drivers y paths pueden darte mas de un dolor de cabeza). Es por esto que dedicar un par de minutos a los siguientes links vale la pena

A partir de aquí creo que me animare con mis primeros pasos reales en Deep Learning!

Happy coding!

#AI – Microsoft AI Lab: Samples, AI Challenge and more

01

Hi!

In some other posts I’ve already talked about AI School and AI demos, today is time for AI Labs.

In this Microsoft resource we can find several examples of Artificial intelligence projects. Each of these projects is associated with a repository on GitHub with the source code of these. For example, there is an intelligent navigation module for a drone that is compiled into Unreal, a Python intelligent image Generator and the JFK case document analysis where Azure services are used Cognitive Services.

Note: Personally I have pending the drone and Unreal, I have to find time to learn something from Unreal.

In addition to these projects, there is the possibility of proposing a new topic. And here the thing gets interesting because this is done in contest mode.

02

Within + 50 Days Is Evaluated The proposals and in addition to a little free publicity of the project, you can win a Surface Book 2 or a DJI drone.

#AI – Microsoft AI Lab: ejemplos, competición y mas

01

Buenas!

En algunos otros posts ya he hablado de AI School y AI Demos, hoy es el turno de AI Labs.

En este recurso de Microsoft podemos encontrar varios ejemplos de proyectos de Inteligencia Artificial. Cada uno de estos proyectos tiene asociado un repositorio en GitHub con el código fuente de estos. Por ejemplo, hay un módulo de navegación inteligente para un drone que se compila en UnReal, un generador de imágenes inteligentes con Python y el análisis de documentos del caso JFK donde se utilizan servicios de Azure Cognitive Services.

Nota: En lo personal tengo pendiente el drone y UnReal, tengo que encontrar tiempo para aprender algo de Unreal.

Además de estos proyectos, existe la posibilidad de proponer un nuevo tema. Y aquí la cosa se pone interesante porque esto se hace en modo concurso.

Dentro de +50 dias se evaluaran las propuestas y además de un poco de publicidad gratuita del proyecto, te puedes ganar una Surface Book 2 o un DJI drone.

#eBook – Free eBook: A Developer’s Guide to Building AI Applications

Clipboard01

Hi!

Interesting news from Microsoft and O’Reilly: now we can download this new ebook for free [A Developer’s Guide to Building AI Applications]. The book is developer-oriented and I have it ready on my Kindle to finish it full tomorrow on the plane. It has only 52 pages and are quite enjoyable to read. I was [meditating in my thinking room], and I read half of the book.

The first chapters deal with the relationship between AI and Cloud; and then it shows the current status of Microsoft’s Artificial intelligence platform. This will surely make the book age quickly, as changes in this ecosystem are constant.

The first example of code is quite predictable: ChatBot. Although this example is quite interesting because it uses enough elements of the ecosystem of MS. Azure FunctionsLuis Qna Maker, Bot Framework and more. The example code of the Chatbot It’s on GitHub. Thing that’s not a surprise at all this Week:D

When I finish reading the book, I will complete the post if there is something remarkable to add.

Meanwhile If you don’t know the MS AI platform, this book It’s a quick and interesting reading to start on this topic.

Happy coding!
