General Session: Amplifying Human Ingenuity with Microsoft AI


11:00am - 12:00pm

Paul Stubbs

Director of Product Marketing for AI and Bots


As Harry Shum said, "a few years ago, it was hard to think of a commonly used technology tool that used AI. In a few years, it will be hard to imagine any technology that doesn’t tap into the power of AI". Our vision is to make the power of AI available to everyone, from developers and data scientists to learning students and tech enthusiasts – to augment our capabilities as people and help us be more productive. Microsoft is delivering a flexible AI platform for organizations and developers to infuse intelligence into their products and services using tools and services like Microsoft Cognitive Services, Bot Framework, Azure Machine Learning, Cognitive Toolkit. In this general session, Paul will provide you a high-level view of the Microsoft AI Platform and show demos and code for you to amplify your ingenuity with intelligent technology.
