With Artificial Intelligence, we have more power at our fingertips than entire generations that came before us. Now, Java developers can rapidly consume high-level “finished” services that accelerate development of AI solutions. Innovations in Computer Vision and Text Analytics now bring powerful AI tools and services to every developer.

In this session, Ruth Yakubu will give a hands-on demo on how to use Java, Computer Vision and Text Analysis to automate a Lost/Found system. We will use a scenario where an item is found and a picture is taken of it and stored. Next, we will explore how Computer Vision returns metadata about visual content found in an image (e.g. tagging, descriptions, colors, adult/racy restrictions etc). Next, we will explore a scenario where the owner submits a Lost/Found report, and Text Analysis automatically identifies the language, sentiment, and key phrases to search if the item is found.
