If you have been to or watched any event this year from Microsoft such as Build, Ignite or TechDays Online, you'll know that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is core to Microsoft's overall vision for how we'll help every person and organisation on the planet achieve more. Microsoft's vision include is about three bold ambitions: AI is central all of these ambitions and technologies like Azure Machine Learning, Cortana Analytics, Cognitive Services and the Microsoft Bot Framework here today and ready for you to start building AI into your applications. Future Decoded is Microsoft's annual UK event which brings together business and technical people from across the UK to learn about the latest in Microsoft technology and the partner ecosystem that surrounds it. The two days will be split into a business focus on the first day and a technical focus on the second day. The afternoon of Technical Day will be split into several tracks focusing on specific technologies, one of those tracks is the Artifical Intelligence track.
TOPOLOGY SHOWS US THAT ALL DATA HAS a underlying shape.TOPOLOGY STUDIES the shape of data. THE DEGREE OF SIMLARITY BETWEEN TWO SHAPES (PATTERN) CAN BE EXPRESSED AS THE AMOUNT OF STRETCHING. TOPOLOGICAL DATA ANALYSIS PROVIDES A GENERAL FRAMEWORK TO EXTRACT INFORMATION FROM DATA-SETS WHICH ARE HIGHDIMENSIONAL, INCOMPLETE NOIS NOISY. TDA PROVIDES A GENERAL FRAMEWORK TO ANALYZE SUCH DATA IN A MANNER THAT IS INSENSITIVE TO THE METRIC CHOSEN AND PROVIDES DIMENSIONALITY REDUCTION AND ROBUSTNESS TO NOISE.
The general concept of artificial intelligence (AI) has been around for a long time, but it is only recently, when all the necessary elements became generally available, that AI has become a practical and usable thing. In the next few years, just about everything you do is going to be tracked, analyzed, and filtered through some sort of artificial intelligence. Sign up for TechRepublic's Microsoft Weekly newsletter and get Windows and Office tutorials, plus our experts' analyses of Microsoft s enterprise products. Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and a slew of other technology companies have been building algorithms and developing machine learning protocols in anticipation of this point in time for years, and all of that work is about to pay off. With Cognitive Services, Microsoft wants to make the transition to an AI-driven world as simple as it can for developers and enterprise decision makers alike.
AI, data and cloud are ushering the next wave of transformative innovations across industries. With Azure AI, our goal is to empower organizations to apply AI across the spectrum of their business to engage customers, empower employees, optimize operations and transform products. We see customers using Azure AI to derive tangible benefits across three key solution areas. Today, at Microsoft Ignite, we are excited to announce a range of innovations across these areas to make Azure the best place for AI. Let me walk you through them.
