Machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) are making headlines but do you really know what they are and how to use them effectively within your organization's software applications? Of course, we're all concerned about someone creating SkyNet from The Terminator and we wanted HAL to open the bay doors in 2001 A Space Odyssey but those are just science fiction movies, right? Well, sort of. Today's voice activated assistants like Alexa, Siri and Cortana have begun to blur the line between the movies and real life. Not surprisingly though, there is so much more to ML and AI than science fiction movies and digital assistants. This event will open your eyes to how ML and AI are being used in today's business applications and how you can begin to further your career by using it in your applications.

Register today to claim your spot and you will learn that Machine learning is based on the idea that machines should be able to learn and adapt through experience. Seems pretty simple, right? Everyday examples include:

  • Live language translation
  • Image and video analysis
  • Self-driving cars
  • Online recommendation offers like Amazon & Netflix
  • Knowing what customers are saying about you on Twitter
  • Fraud detection
  • And so many more…

Come out and join Jim Duffy from CODE Magazine and TRINUG's own Kevin Feasel (Data Platform MVP) as they introduce you to the world of machine learning and artificial intelligence on the Microsoft Azure platform. You’ll walk away with resources, motivation and completed hands-on labs under your belt!

We will be updating this page before the event and will communicate via email with attendees regarding what they need to have pre-installed on their laptop before attending the event.
