  • Azure Cognitive Services brings intelligence & increased productivity to your business processes | AI Show
    by Seth Juarez on 21st January 2020 at 18:00

    Showcasing how you can build productive and intelligent solutions with Azure Cognitive Services. We'll walk through a series of demos highlighting our Computer Vision, Form Recognizer and Custom Vision services.  Re-Visit Your Favorite Part: [00:39] Here we showcase how the Cognitive Services are allowing businesses to be more productive and intelligent. Azure Cognitive Services are a suite of APIs that allow you to embed the ability to see, hear, speak, search, understand and accelerate decision making into your apps without requiring machine learning expertise[01:10] The code for these demos are available on GitHub Here[01:50] We demo the capabilities of our Form Recognizer service which builds on our OCR capabilities by providing the extracted text in a structured, intelligent format. You can extract key/value pairs as well as tables, forms and receipts without manually labelling by document type or the intensive coding and maintenance required when you build your own model.  [03:25] In our last demo we how combining Form Recognizer with Custom Vision can help automate insurance claim processing. Our example solution uses Custom Vision to identify and categorize the damage to a vehicle from an image. We then use Form Recognizer to extract the customer's responses to the insurance claim form into a structured format. Since Form Recognizer provides the key/value pairs instead of just raw, extracted text we can easily pass this structured data on to downstream business processing without the need to manually enter in the customer's responses. We can now quickly verify if the image shows the damage being claimed by the customer. This demo highlights how combining multiple Cognitive Services together allows you to build powerful, productive solutions for your business without requiring deep machine learning expertise.The AI Show's Favorite links:Don't miss new episodes, subscribe to the AI Show  Create a Free account (Azure) Deep Learning vs. Machine Learning   Get Started with Machine Learning

  • Azure Maps Mobility Services | Internet of Things Show
    by Olivier Bloch, MAAllen on 20th January 2020 at 20:00

    Azure Maps Mobility Services make the life of an IoT developer easier! And they contribute towards a great end user experience. ( Watch this episode to see Outi Nyman, Senior Program Manager, Azure Maps, step through the APIs for these services. Designed to support developers creating smart city applications that move people and things from one place to another, they help create applications that decrease traffic congestion and increase air quality. The Mobility Service APIs for Azure Maps are brought to life in partnership with Moovit, Inc. Moovit combines information from public transit operators and authorities with live information from its user community to offer a real-time picture of public transit services, including stops, route information, and travel time estimations. Developers can access Azure Maps Mobility Service APIs through an Azure subscription. Outi demonstrates a few of these APIs including Nearby Transit, Transit Stop Details, Transit Line Details, Transit Route, Transit Itinerary and Real-Time arrivals. She also demonstrates how data can be visualized for the end user with an Azure Maps Web SDK or an Android SDK. With Azure Mobility Services, just a few API calls for the developer create a rich smart city application for the end user! Learn more:

  • Minimum Viable Response Plan | Create: A Global Startup Event Series
    by Jason Hand on 12th September 2019 at 14:00

    A minimum viable product (MVP) allows you to obtain rapid feedback, and implement continuous and iterative improvements. When you put an MVP into production, however, you need to take the next step and make sure that you can respond effectively when problems inevitably arise. You need a minimum viable response plan. One that allows you to keep your MVP operational without burdening your team.In this talk, we'll discuss the full lifecycle of an incident, what it means to be robust versus resilient when building a response plan. And we'll help you determine who is on-call when, and for which kinds of problems. We'll also talk about notifications, escalations, and how to enable learning from each problem your service encounters. This will give you the basis of a minimum viable response plan, so you and your team have a baseline to start and continuously improve up.
