**PLEASE NOTE: This month's meet-up is one week later than usual. We will be meeting on the 3rd Thursday instead of the 2nd Thursday of September.

To change things up a bit this month, Saber Talazadeh will start off the evening with a quick overview of the latest updates to Power BI.

Next, Yana Berkovich & Joseph Yeates will be exploring the many options Power BI and Power Platform have to offer in the AI space. The new Power Platform AI features are already here, and they'll be taking you on a journey exploring some of the most fun and useful features.

Whether you are just getting started and want to use pre-made algorithms or understand understand enough already start building your own models, this session will be opening new possibilities wherever you are in your AI journey. We'll be starting with Natural language query, moving on to the complex features of building a model using data flows and ML in Premium capacity (please, please work!!), introducing the PowerApps AI builder to hopefully recognize an image and even having a slide that include statistics. We hope that you will join our journey into AI for Power Platform.
