Welcome to the InfoQ podcast. My name is Roland Meertens and today, I am interviewing Cassie Breviu. She is a senior program manager at Microsoft and hosted the innovations in machine learning systems track at QCon London. I am actually speaking to her in person at the venue of QCon London Conference. In this interview, I will talk with her on how she got started with AI and what machine learning tools can accelerate your work when deploying models on a wide range of devices. We will also talk about GitHub Copilot and how AI can help you be a better programmer. If you want to see her talk on how to operationalize transformer models on the edge, at the moment of recording this, you can still register for the QCon Plus Conference or see if the recording is already uploaded on infoq.com. Welcome, Cassie to QCon London. I'm very glad to see you here. I hope you're happy to be at this conference. I heard that you actually got into AI by being at the conference. I am thoroughly enjoying this conference. It's really put together really well and I really enjoy it. So what happened was I was at a developer conference. I was a full stack C# engineer and I'd always been really interested in AI and machine learning, but it always seemed scary and out of reach. I had even tried to read some books on it and I thought, "Well, this might be just too much for me or too complicated or I just can't do this." So I went to this talk by Jennifer Marsman and she did this amazing talk on, Would You Survive the Titanic Sinking? She used this product that's called Azure Machine Learning Designer.
