Let's code a drone using Azure OpenAI Services
July 25th, 2023 - 11:30AM EST

During this livestream, we will explore the power of Azure OpenAI Services and GPT models by integrating them with a drone. Using these services, we will (try to) control the device intuitively using natural language. With GPT models' ability to answer follow-up questions, admit mistakes, challenge incorrect premises, and reject inappropriate requests, the possibilities for intuitive and seamless interaction with technology are endless.

But that's not all - during the session, you'll get to witness live coding that will enable you to control the drone using language commands. And the best part? GPT will be generating the code based on your own words! You can ask the drone to "fly to the end of the room" or "find an empty chair", and GPT models will generate the code to make it happen.
