📍 App Speedup using SIMD Instructions by Michal Bubnár
SIMD processor instructions (Single Instruction Multiple Data) are processor instructions, that work with more data (vector of values) at once, so they perform (mainly) arithmetic operations faster.

A compiler should compile the code into SIMD processor instructions, however compiler is not omnipotent and our applications might not utilize available processing power.

There is a way how to ensure that however and I can show some real life examples, where and how can this approach be applicable.

📍 Introduction to ML.NET by Marek Linka
An introductory session to creating and using machine learning models from .NET applications - the ML.NET library and possibly Win.ML framework.
