#AI – Use Microsoft Math Solver to get free Wifi

Buy Me A Coffee


Huge off-topic today, you know, is Friday.

So, I was in a coffee, where they share Wifi, but with this tricky “Password”

Even with all the Machine Learning stuff I’ve been doing, my math is kind of rust. And, add to this that is Friday and I’m tired. So, let’s use AI to solve this.

A few weeks ago, Microsoft released an app to help us with this: Microsoft Math Solver.

Microsoft Math solver app provides help with a variety of problems including arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, statistics, and other topics using an advanced AI powered math solver. Simply write a math problem on screen or use the camera to snap a math photo. Microsoft Math problem solver instantly recognizes the problem and helps you to solve it with step-by-step explanation, interactive graphs, similar problems from the web and online video lectures. Quickly look up related math concepts. Get help with your homework problems and gain confidence in mastering the techniques 💯 with Microsoft Math. ⚡It is absolutely FREE!⚡

A video is always useful

And, you can draw your math problems or you can scan a photo for this. Let’s test plan B. Take a photo, select the area with the Math Formula

And that’s it! We got the math problem analyzed and solved!

And, as the description offers, we also have step-by-step explanation, interactive graphs, similar problems from the web and online video lectures

And, you know what? I’m posting this using “Free Wifi”

Happy coding!

Interfaz Podcast Episodio 131 – En vivo desde Microsoft Ignite 2019 – Inteligencia Artificial y Hobbies con Bruno Capuano

Buy Me A Coffee

¡En vivo desde Microsoft Ignite 2019 en Orlando!

La democratización de la Inteligencia Artificial y sus tecnologías relacionadas, permite crear divertidos e interesantes proyectos.  Tal es el caso del servicio cognitivo de Vision Personalizada o Custom Vision de Azure, el cual nos permite entrenar un modelo de machine learning para el reconocimiento de imágenes.

Para hablarnos de esto y de su aplicación en hobbies y proyectos familiares, en este episodio de Interfaz contamos con la presencia de Bruno Capuano, quien es Microsoft MVP en la categoría de AI.

Durante esta amena charla, Bruno nos platica algunas novedades en ML.NET, su experiencia como speaker en Ignite 2019, y un interesante proyecto de reconocimiento de imágenes para su gato.

Bruno nos recomienda la serie de libros de Warhammer 40000.  Uno de ellos es “La herejía de Horus 1. Horus, señor de la guerra : las semillas de la herejía


#Event – Resources used during the #MachineLearning Galore at @MississaugaNetU


It was a placer to share some amazing time with the Mississauga .Net User Group last night in my last session of the decade. It was a full night focused on Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and as usual is time to share the resources used in the session.

#Training – Elements of AI, a free #ArtificialIntelligence training from Finland (with also an amazing story)

Buy Me A Coffee


Via “The Verge” (see references), I found this amazing story.

Last year, Finland launched a free online crash course in artificial intelligence with the aim of educating its citizens about the new technology. Now, as a Christmas present to the world, the European nation is making the six week program available for anyone to take.

Finland is making its online AI crash course free to the world , The Verge

Please read the article, is an amazing initiative from a country with amazing people. They are also in the process of translate the course to all the supported languages in EU, so this will be great.

And, I decided to give the course a try and this is my thoughts, after completed Chapter 1

There are no videos here, it’s all about reading about Definitions of AI, Applications of AI, introduction to Machine Learning, and other topics.

  • I read this very fast, and boom 1st exercise I got an amazing score.
  • I keep the same pace, and then next exercises make me realize that I need to spend more time here. I won’t complete the full course in 5 minutes, I like a challenge of read, understand and explain.
  • The final test is a written one, where you need to submit your answers and there is a committee analyzing and deciding your result.

So, I’m here waiting for the response and looking forward for next chapter which may involve some Python programming.

And, as a general-purpose course I think is an amazing resource. There are so many AI courses, which most of the time are so focus on the technical part, and is nice to find a different approach to educate about Artificial Intelligence to the general public.

#PowerPoint – How cool is the Accessibility Checker? Powered by #AI, so a #MustDo for my next #MSIgnite sessions!

Buy Me A Coffee


I was reviewing my slides for Microsoft Slides, and I remembered that Melissa Hubbart (@melihubb) was tweeting about checking your slides previous to the event.

So, I decided to give it a try. And, it was my time to check what’s new with the Accessibility Feature in PowerPoint. There are several ways to use this feature. If you want to check the content of the current slide, in the Review menu, there is an option to check the current slide.

powerpoint accessibility checker menu

If you want to check the complete PowerPoint File, in the menu [File / Info / Inspect Presentation] there is an option named [Check Accessibility] to do this.

powerpoint check accesibility

Once the Accessibility Checker panel is open, we can review all the issues.

powerpoint accessibility checker results

There are organized by severity levels (errors, warning and tips). And we can find common scenarios like

  • Missing alternative text for images and shapes
  • Missing title slides

One cool feature here, when working with pictures, is that we can leverage the power of Artificial Intelligence to automatically describe de content of the pictures. In the following image we can see how it automatically recognizes my cat Goku lying on a bed.

So, you know, please check the Accessibility of your files and Happy Coding!

#Event – My sessions at #MSIgnite 2019, rocking #AI and #Diversity !

Buy Me A Coffee


Next week I’ll be at Microsoft Ignite 2019, and I’m very excited. I’ll have 2 sessions (see below), and I’m also excited for the networking opportunities and for some amazing sessions.

My Sessions at Ignite

Diversity is more, much more! Living in tech as a Latino who can’t dance

I was born and raised in Argentina, then I lived eleven years in Spain working all around Europe. Finally, three years ago I moved to Canada. And yes, my Latin background impacted my professional career.

This session is mostly sharing what I’ve learned during these past years. How I learned to get the most from sentences like “You have a very strong accent; I don’t think you will fit this meeting. These are Senior Executives” or “Wow, your accent is amazing, our leadership team will love it!” In both scenarios, I manage to move from frustration or surprise to “let’s focus on our business.”

And it’s not only about language and accent; family, culture, and even food and drinks are a part of the story. Espero que nos veamos en la sesion!


How a PoC at home can scale to enterprise level using custom vision APIs

It all started with a DIY project to use computer vision for security cameras at home. A custom machine learning model is the core component used to analyze pictures to detect people, animals, and more in a house environment. The AI processing is performed at the edge, in dedicated hardware and the collected information is stored in the cloud. The same idea can be applied to several CCTV scenarios, like parking lots, train stations, malls, and more. However, moving this into enterprise scale brings a set of challenges, which are described and explained in this session.

#Event – Building an Anomaly Detector System with a few or no lines of code at @MSFTReactor

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Microsoft opened a brand new Microsoft Reactor in Toronto, and I’m lucky enough to host a AI session about Anomaly Detection. Below are the details

Detecting anomalies is a common scenario which can be applied to dozens of industries. From the analysis of power consumption, medical data, or even analysis of personal information, anomalies can be detected based on historical data.

During this workshop, Bruno will guide attendees to code a complete system that will detect anomalies: you will train a model based on historical data, and later use the same model with new data to identify anomalies. At the end of the workshop, attendees will review a new set of options to create an Anomaly Detection System without a single line of code!

Please bring a laptop or other personal device to participate in this hands-on workshop.
