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

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

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 – Resources used on the session [Everyday Artificial Intelligence] @Hack4Heritage

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi !

Somehow, I forgot to share this. I was at the hack4heritage during the weekend, and it was awesome. I meet some amazing people and I also have the chance to see the results of 3 days of work of 6 groups, who worked on great ideas on Unity focused on Heritage preservation.

As usual, here are the Slides I used

And some tweets and resources

Happy coding!

#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.

#Event – We will also have Learning Paths in #MSIgnite The Tour in Toronto on January 2020

Buy Me A Coffee

Hi!

In a couple of weeks; 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.

There are tons of awesome sessions, and one cool option that we have, is to choose a Learning Path around a specific subject like Artificial Intelligence, Workplace Modernization, Modern Operations, etc.

What is a Learning Path at Microsoft Ignite?

A Learning Path is a series of connected learning modules that include sessions, hands-on experiences, technical workshops, certifications, and expert connections. Each Learning Path works together to build upon what you’ve learned to provide a comprehensive set of skills to help you reach your goals.

https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/learning-paths

This is so cool!

And, even cooler, we will have Learning Paths in our own Microsoft Ignite The Tour in Toronto, on January 2020.

Microsoft Ignite The Tour in Toronto, on January 2020.

Microsoft Ignite The Tour brings the very best of Microsoft Ignite to a city near you. The tour provides technical training led by Microsoft experts and your community. You’ll learn new ways to build solutions, migrate and manage infrastructure, and connect with local industry leaders and peers.

#MSIgnite – Diversity is more, much more! Living in tech as a Latino who can’t dance > See you in November @Msignite!

Hi!

If you think that my blog was hacked, not yet.

Someone advised me to get out of my comfort zone, and somehow my comfort zone is usually speack tech at tech events. So, I decided to try a new format for a session, with some of the stories I usually share in my tech presentations. And that’s how this session was born, and also approved to be at Microsoft Ignite

#Event – Great news for #GlobalAINight: new venue and final Agenda for Toronto

Hi !

The Global AI Night is a free evening event organized by 93 communities all over the world that are passionate about Artificial Intelligence on the Microsoft Azure. During this AI Night you will get inspired through sessions and get your hands dirty during the workshops. By the end of the night you will be able to infuse AI into your applications.

Please check the register link to find the NEW AMAZING VENUE we had: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/global-ai-night-tickets-70625519831

And this is the final agenda

KeyNote

Creating applications that can see, hear, speak, understand and even read !

using Microsoft Cognitive Services. In this workshop you will be introduced to the Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services, a range of offerings you can use to infuse intelligence and machine learning into your applications without needing to build the code from scratch. We will cover pre-trained AI APIs, such as computer vision and text analytics, that are accessed by REST protocol. We will also feature one of the most recent and powerful Services: Form Recognizer. Form Recognizer applies advanced machine learning to accurately extract text, key/value pairs, and tables from documents. With just a few samples, Form Recognizer tailors its understanding to documents. Wrapping the workshop up by building our custom trained AI into an application

Introduction to ML.Net and AutoML

ML.Net is an open-source and cross-platform machine learning framework for .NET developers. Using ML.Net , developers can leverage their existing tools and skillsets to develop and infuse custom AI into their applications by creating custom machine learning models for common scenarios like Sentiment Analysis, Recommendation, Image Classification and more. AutoML (Automated Machine Learning) is a collection of new technologies from Microsoft to enhance the data science development process.
In this workshop you will be introduced to the core features and scenarios of ML.Net and also to the preview feature of Model Builder for AutoML.

Happy coding!
