Session Descriptions

Ignite Special
Simon Hudson, Simon Doy, Garry Trinder and Paul Gallagher

Find out about all the latest Ignite announcements and news from Ignite related to Office 365 and the Power Platform. Simon Hudson will be in Florida (its alright for some) to Microsoft Ignite and will be giving us the load down plus the rest of the team will be helping by giving their take and discussing the other areas which Simon didn't have a chance to cover. These are always interesting sessions and we look forward to the discussion about the announcements.

Real World Problem Solving with Azure Cognitive Services and Flow
Dylan Hayes - Blacklight Software

This session is aimed at those who are interested in Azure Cognitive Services and how it can be applied to solve real world problems using Microsoft Flow and Office 365.

Firstly what we mean by Azure Cognitive Services? And how does it relate to the long and sometimes legendary history of what has previously been termed "Artificial Intelligence"? Once past the Terminator and HAL 9000 quotes, we can then examine how cognitive services actually work, and how it is composed of distinct services that each solve particular problems.

Then we'll discuss the many services in more detail, and take the time to do some interactive demos of using Flow to wire up some interesting services such as image recognition, sentiment analysis, content moderation and optical character recognition and see how well they cope with real world data.
