#Event – Resources used on the Azure AI Fundamentals, intro to #AzureML @conosurtech

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Amazing session yesterday with my friends from ConoSurTech, Fernando, Ivana y Pablo. We had a great session with a high level overview around Azure Machine Learning, as part of the “Diplomado de AI Fundamentals 2020

Diplomado de AI Fundamentals 2020

El diplomado consiste en clases online dictadas a partir del 20 de Octubre de 2020. Las clases son dictadas los días Martes y Jueves a partir de las 18hrs (GMT-3), junto a entrevistas con líderes de productos y comunidades. El diplomado recorrerá los temas que forman parte de la certificación AI-900 Artificial Intelligence Fundamentals sumado a los últimos lanzamientos realizados por Microsoft en el mes de Septiembre. 

So, as usual now is the time to share slides, and links. No Code this time, so you are going to avoid some Copy & Paste.

A very long list here…

Personal Note

It was a fast session, with over +100 viewers, and … so many topics to talk ! I prepared a full MLOps pipeline to show, I was planning to code from scratch a Jupyter Notebook, and more … we didn’t have time. This comment resume it all:

Hi !

Another huge and amazing events from my friends at the @netcoreconf, perfect excuse to talk about python, machine learning, computer vision and more. This one was also tricky, no slides, just code during 50 min so here are some related resources.

#Event – Getting Started with Machine Learning .NET

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

I’m back to share some amazing ML.Net Experiences. This time with my friends from [Central Ohio .NET Developer’s Group (CONDG)] with a virtual event on [Thursday, September 24, 2020].

It’s been a while since my Machine Learning.Net sessions, so I’m creating one from scratch to cover all the amazing new features that we have on ML.Net. Please check the registration page for more information:

Getting Started with Machine Learning.NET

If you are a developer and you started to feel outside of the Machine Learning world, this session is for you. In this session, we will review the basics of machine learning, how to use existing models and services in standard developer apps, and how to get started with creating your own simple models.
Important: we don’t need any specific math or data skills to create ML models. We will cover the basis of Machine Learning.Net, a complete ML framework to work with C#, F# or any other .Net Core language.
And I’m a developer first, so do not expect many slides. Instead, we will code a fully functional app from scratch.

Happy coding!

Greetings

Hi !

Just a self reminder post of a couple of events in my calendar.

Introduction to Machine Learning.Net

31 July 2020

Machine Learning.Net 1.5.1 is already here, so that’s the perfect excuse to chat with my colleagues from the MUG Argentina about this. This session is designed for developers who wants to start in the Machine Learning world. Machine Learning.Net is an amazing framework for this!

Important: the session will be in Spanish.

XR Session – Lessons Learned creating a multiplatform AI project for Azure Kinect and Hololens 2

6 August 2020

It all started with a 10000 kms conversation between 2 friends about how easy is to port Mixed Reality projects between platforms. So, we choose Azure Kinect and Hololens 2 as the platforms to test this out. To make this more challenging, we also decided to place custom holograms in those different platforms based on some cool Image Recognition scenarios (custom Artificial Intelligence rocks!) During this session we will review how to use MRTK, Azure Kinect SDK, Computer Vision, and other cool technologies to make this happen. And, of course, be aware that this session is full of code, hardware and demos, do not expect a lot of slides. Let’s code / build this.
Speakers: Ivana Tilca & Bruno Capuano, Both Microsoft MVP

#SomeGoodNews: Reminder, less than 24 hr for Talk 4 Kids 2020. #t4k2020 @talks4kids

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Let’s share Some Good News.

Before moving to Canada, my last event in Spain was probably one of the the best one ever: with a couple of friends we hosted the Talk 4 Kids.

Talk 4 Kids

The event is focused on technology, with amazing speakers, and the funds raised will go entirely to an NGO or foundation, which has programs and actions focused on children (see Theodora Foundation below).

In 2015 we set ourselves a goal of € 1,500.00. If we managed to reach this figure, all the speakers would give their talks in disguise. Luckily for everyone and unfortunately for the speakers, we raised € 1,895, dressed up …. you can still find these images / photos in internet.

This year, we will have an online version, with tons of surprises and you have 2 ways to collaborate / donate:

The speaker lineup is almost ready, and the agenda will be released soon. So, if you want to share some smiles with kids, this is an amazing opportunity to be part of something amazing.

Theodora Foundation

At the Theodora Children’s Charity we believe that all children deserve laughter. The mission at the heart of our work is to contribute to the wellbeing of children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres by providing visits from professional performers who have been trained to work in a medical environment.

Our Giggle Doctors visit children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres across England. By combining music, play, magic and storytelling these professional performers bring magical moments to brave children in challenging times. We believe that every sick or disabled child should get the giggles that only a Giggle Doctor can bring.

Although a Giggle Doctor visit may only last a few minutes, the effect it can have on a child can last a lifetime. The visits often have a lasting impact on the children and families they visit. We often receive feedback from parents telling us the visits have helped to improve a child’s long-term experience of hospital.

“Because of the Giggle Doctors my daughter actually looks forward to coming to hospital for chemotherapy”

“The Giggle Doctor visits have helped my son to interact as he has developed a phobia of medical staff and the Giggle Doctors have helped him be less scared of people on the ward”

A Giggle Doctor visit isn’t just about one magical moment, it can have a significant and lasting impact on a child’s well-being and perception of the hospital environment. 

Happy coding!
