Talk 1 - Machine Learning for Muggles

Artificial Intelligence is the latest hotness. Machine Learning sits behind artificial intelligence and on the surface it may seem like a deeply technical, scientific topic. We are here to tell you that it is more accessible than you think. We’ll look at some of the basics around the Azure Machine Learning service. We’ll also look some of the Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs which make it very easy to implement artificial intelligence ‘smarts’ into your application with simple, standard REST calls.

Talk 2 - The Murky World of Hybrid Apps

Which is best … apps or web? Why not have both? The lines are getting increasingly blurred between the web and native apps. Operating systems like Windows 10 are able to execute JavaScript from a remote web server, web apps are able to reach into your Microsoft Office documents and fiddle around with them, you can wrap your website with rich, native functionality. In this talk we'll look at the murky and confusing world of hosted hybrid web apps. We'll look at the different tools available for creating hosted hybrid apps on multiple platforms ushc as Manifold JS. We'll look at where hosted hybrid apps work well and where they don't.
