#Office – Uno de los mejores ejemplos de uso de #AI con #Powerpoint (luego llegará el de Excel en mobile)

Buenas  !

Cuando hablamos de Inteligencia Artificial, hay muchos ejemplos que podemos utilizar para demostrar las capacidades de AI (Artificial Intelligence). En lo personal, siempre prefiero utilizar ejemplos que sean fácilmente trasladados a nuestro día a día. Es por eso que la opción [Design Ideas] en PowerPoint es uno de los mejores ejemplos que suelo utilizar.

En la siguiente animación podemos ver como partiendo de una simple Slide con 3 elementos de texto, [Design Ideas] nos presenta una serie de estilos aplicados sobre la slide original que realmente mejoran nuestra presentación. Es interesante mencionar que además de agregar un estilo visual a la Slide, también agrega iconos para cada uno de los 3 bullets, que están relacionados con el contenido de los mismos.

Para que quede más claro, esta es la slide original

Y este es el diseño propuesto.

#Office – An amazing example of the power of #AI inside #Powerpoint

Hi !

There are tons of demos about amazing using of Artificial Intelligence. I always try to choose and show the ones, who can be easily translated into our day to day experience. That´s why the option [Design Ideas] in Power Point is an amazing demo on how to use this.

In the following video, we can see how I start with a simple blank slide with 3 text bullets, and then how the [Design Ideas] tool transform this slide in a much better one, and it also even add related icons to new Design!

#Event – Resources used on my session at the largest Canada makeathon: @MakeUofT [How a PoC at home can scale to Enterprise Level using #CustomVision APIs]

2019 02 16 MakeUofT Custom Vision Bruno

Hi !

What an amazing time at the Canadian Largest Makeathon: MakeUofT (https://ieee.utoronto.ca/makeuoft/). The event, people and ideas are great. And now it’s time to share some of the materials used during my session

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 going to be described and explained in this session.

These are the slides I’ve used

And the source code is available here

https://github.com/elbruno/events/tree/master/2019%2002%2016%20MakeUofT%20Custom%20Vision

In the source code you can find the console and Windows 10 app samples I’ve coded live and also the exported images of my custom vision demo project in windows, linux and raspberry pi flavors. The 3rd one is where I spent some time updating the original linux one to work on the small device.

And as usual a couple of interesting links

#MachineLearning – Free Ebook [A Developer’s Guide to Building AI Applications] from Anand Raman and Wee Hyong Tok

FreeEBook A Developer s Guide to Building AI Applications

Hi!

A few days ago I wrote a post about a free ebook download [Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning] from Christopher Bishop.

Today we had the chance to also download another amazing Artificial Intelligence eBook from Anand Raman and Wee Hyong Took: [A Developer’s Guide to Building To Applications]. This one, is much more oriented to the use and integration of Artificial intelligence during application development.

Next, an amazing copy&paste with the description of the book

Artificial intelligence (AI) is accelerating the digital transformation for every industry, with examples spanning manufacturing, retail, finance, healthcare and many others. At this rate, every industry will be able to use AI to amplify human ingenuity. In this eBook, Anand Raman and Wee Hyong Tok from Microsoft provide a comprehensive roadmap for developers to build their first AI-infused application.

Using a Conference Buddy as an example, you’ll learn the key ingredients needed to develop an intelligent chatbot that helps conference participants interact with speakers. This eBook provides a gentle introduction to the tools, infrastructure and services on the Microsoft AI Platform, and teaches you how to create powerful, intelligent applications.

  • Understand how the intersection of cloud, data and AI is enabling organisations to build intelligent systems.
  • Learn the tools, infrastructure and services available as part of the Microsoft AI Platform for developing AI applications.
  • Teach the Conference Buddy application new AI skills, using pre-built AI capabilities such as vision, translation and speech.
  • Learn about the Open Neural Network Exchange.

AI Capabilities for Power BI

With the massive volumes of data generated today about every aspect of a business finding insights from the data can be challenging. This is where AI can help. AI can aid in data exploration, comb through the data to automatically find patterns, help users understand what the data means, and predict future outcomes to help business drive results.

There are huge opportunities when workers across an organization can leverage AI for improving business outcomes. But data scientists, who are crucial to deploying AI solutions, don’t have the bandwidth to provide custom solutions to all users at an organization. Businesses need ways to surface the valuable work of data scientists and empower more users to leverage AI in easy and intuitive ways.

Power BI has been a pioneer in applying AI through capabilities such as natural language, which enables users to get answers by asking questions in plain English, or Quick Insights, which automatically finds patterns in data.

This session is demo intense.
