Microsoft is taking the machine/language learning task out of developer's hands, making it super easy for devs to use. They don't presume you are an expert in those technologies.
www.microsoft.com/cognitive 22 free APIs available for free
New APIs for developers to give a 'Human side" to their apps.
This cogsci/AI stuff is neat because it's leaving academia and going commercial. Big move in modern computing. #build2016
"Custom recognition intelligence"
audio with a lot of background audio noise
Demo is for kid speech and translation
Demo of Wizr for realtime Twitter analytics and how these APIs can help with customers
Another wrap up of what we just saw. Asking us to "imagine what companies can do..." with these new tools
caught Nadella's attention about what these apps/APIs can do for real people
He's a MS engineer who is blind
basically glasses that can tell you what it sees
"The app can describe the age, gender, and expressions of people around you"
Use the phone to take a picture of a menu and have the phone read back to you what it says
Crazy stuff for sure. Nice real-world example
People clapping like crazy
The developer is on stage who made it.
Real human element brought on stage here
Slam dunk on that ending.
We're hitting the floor, thanks for watching!
