Developers Guide to AI
Published Nov 26 2020 02:50 AM 6,105 Views

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is driving innovative solutions across all industries, but with machine learning (ML) applying a paradigm change to how we approach building products, we are all exploring how to expand our skill sets and enhance our applications.  


In this session we  won’t be able to teach you how to become a data scientist. But in this on demand session you can spend  3 hours, showing you how to build on your current developer skills to integrate AI services into your business applications and also set you up on your journey to become certified in AI Fundamentals.  


During the session we will show you interesting technology through the lens of real business scenarios and to do that we would like to introduce you to Tailwind Traders. Tailwind Traders is a retail company looking for support on how to benefit from applying AI across their business. In 'Developers Guide to AI’ we will show how Tailwind Traders have solved business challenges and implemented AI technologies. 


In this online learning series and associated Microsoft Learn learning paths you will see a wide range of examples: dealing with different types of data (text, audio, image, unstructured), sharing best practices around unstructured search and conversational AI or taking your next step in learning more about machine learning theory with low code solutions.
