#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.

#Microsoft – Internet Archive give us access to MS-DOS and MS Word source code (Back to the 90’s !)

Hi!

Over the last few days, there are people who have a big smile on their face. If you are one of those who like the history of computers, now you have at your fingertips a major component of the last 30 years.

MICROSOFT RESEARCH LICENSE AGREEMENT | Microsoft DOS V1.1 and V2.0

And that’s not all. During these days, Microsoft has also released the source code of another historical piece of software from the years 90:

MICROSOFT RESEARCH LICENSE AGREEMENT | Microsoft Word for Windows version 1.1ª

The next great move I read that is commented on several online sources is that Microsoft release the source code of Windows 10 Mobile, but as shares much of Core Windows 10 for desktop I don’t think that’s happening.

01 MS Word Source Code

Wow, tons of  C++ Source Code

MS-DOS and MS Word licenses are not Open Source per se. They are rather, of the type “Look But don’t touch “, for non-commercial purposes or education, which makes a lot of sense in the case of initially commercial software.

This has made some noise, and it seems that there are people who have not yet reached the point of understanding that Microsoft has changed a lot in terms of its Open Source policy. Today many of their products Core They’re Open Source. From the .net Framework, to very massive products like ASP.Net MVC, EF, Visual Studio Code, to specific implementations of very interesting products like Machine Learning Net.

Bonus: I take the time to remind you that tomorrow we will talk about ML.Net in the Microsoft offices in Toronto, free pizza and drinks. And if you can not in person, in November and December also participate in some Webinars About ML.Net.

Extra bonus, a cool video with the Internet Archive explanation

#Microsoft – Internet Archive ya permite acceder al source code de MS-DOS y MS Word (Back to the 90’s !)

Buenas!

Durante los últimos días, hay personas que tienen una sonrisa en su rostro. Si eres de los que les gusta la historia de los ordenadores, pues ya tienes a tu alcance uno de los componentes principales de los últimos 30 años.

MICROSOFT RESEARCH LICENSE AGREEMENT | Microsoft DOS V1.1 and V2.0

Y esto no es todo. Durante estos días, Microsoft también ha liberado el código fuente de otra pieza histórica de software de los años 90:

MICROSOFT RESEARCH LICENSE AGREEMENT | Microsoft Word for Windows version 1.1ª

El siguiente gran movimiento que leo que se comenta en varias fuentes online es que Microsoft libere el source code de Windows 10 Mobile, aunque como comparte mucho del core de Windows 10 para desktop esto no creo que suceda.

01 MS Word Source Code

Siempre es un placer ver tanto C++ source Code

Las licencias de MS-DOS y de MS Word no son Open Source per se. Son mas bien, del tipo “mira pero no toques”, con propósitos no comerciales o de educación, cosa que tiene mucho sentido tratándose de software inicialmente comerciales.

Esto ha hecho un poco de ruido, y parece que hay personas que todavía no han llegado al punto de comprender que Microsoft ha cambiado mucho en lo que se refiere a su política sobre el Open Source. Hoy muchos de sus productos core son Open Source. Desde .Net Framework, hasta productos muy masivos como ASP.Net MVC, EF, Visual Studio Code, hasta implementaciones específicas de productos muy interesantes como Machine Learning .Net.

Bonus: Aprovecho el momento para recordarte que mañana hablaremos de ML.Net en las oficinas de Microsoft en Toronto, pizza gratis y bebidas. Y si no puedes en modo presencial, en noviembre y diciembre también participare en algunos webinars sobre ML.Net.

Y de regalo in video explicando que es el Internet Archive

#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.

02

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!

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

Buenas!

Interesante noticia de parte de Microsoft y O’Reilly: podemos descargar gratuitamente el libro electrónico [A Developer’s Guide to Building AI Applications]. El libro está orientado a desarrolladores y lo tengo listo en el Kindle para terminarlo completo mañana en el avión.

Son solo 52 páginas y son bastante amenas de leer. Recién mientras [meditaba en la sala de pensar], lei la mitad del mismo.

Los primeros capítulos tratan la relación que existe entre AI y Cloud; y luego se muestra el estado actual de la plataforma de Inteligencia Artificial de Microsoft. Esto seguramente hará que el libro envejezca rápidamente, ya que los cambios en este ecosistema son constantes.

El 1er ejemplo de código es bastante predecible: ChatBot. Aunque este ejemplo es bastante interesante ya que utiliza bastantes elementos del ecosistema de MS. Azure Functions, LUIS, QnA Maker, Bot Framework y más. El código de ejemplo del chatbot esta en GitHub. Cosa que no es una sorpresa para nada esta semana 😀

Cuando termine de leer el libro, completare el post si hay algo remarcable para agregar. Mientras tanto, si no conoces la plataforma de AI de MS, este libro es una lectura rápida e interesante para comenzar en este tema.

Happy Coding!
