Talk 1: HowTo: Developing AI solutions with serverless technologies
Artificial intelligence is no longer a hype but is perceived by most companies as a serious method. This is demonstrated to us all on a daily basis with so-called "smart assistants" such as Siri, Cortana or Alexa or even autonomous driving. With the help of AI we can make our lives easier. But how can we develop modern solutions here?
In his talk Sven will show how to adapt such solutions to Microsoft Azure like "Batch AI" or "Machine Learning Studio" with the help of serverless services. Part of the presentation will consist of demos and hands-on examples.
Sven Wildermann is a specialist for data and artificial intelligence at Microsoft Germany and advises clients in Germany on topics such as the Internet of Things, machine learning and integration.
