Boost your Modern Workplace with Microsoft's AI Ecosystem
The Modern Workplace is an important topic, not only due to the fact that Microsoft is pushing a lot of effort and development power into that topic. Whether it is Microsoft 365 with all its productivity services like Teams and SharePoint Online within Office 365 or Azure services or even Windows 10, the modern workplace is an important building block in the Microsoft ecosystem. As Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to stay, all these Modern Workplace services should not only bring productivity enhancements but should also be intelligent as well.
Therefore, the aim of this session is to give an overview of the Microsoft AI stack including real-world scenarios for deploying those services. Additionally, this session will cover possible fields of applications for AI services like Bots or Cognitive Services which can be used in the productivity services within Office 365 like Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, Skype for Business Online, Microsoft Forms, and others…
During this session, you will learn about the following services:
• Microsoft Artificial Intelligence Ecosystem
• Cognitive Services
• Azure Bot Service
• Microsoft Bot Framework
• Office 365
