In this session, I will talk about some of the cognitive services available in Azure, based on Artificial Intelligence, that allows us to automate several business processes so we can achieve better results and fill our business needs.


Leveraging Automated Machine Learning to enable anyone to develop Machine Learning solutions

Nowadays, several business owners know that leveraging Artificial Intelligence capabilities, on their systems and applications, can enable their businesses to achieve better results. But building Artificial Intelligence solutions may be a time-consuming and complex process, so consequently, some of these people give up of building such solutions, since they or their team do not have the expertise and capacity required, or sometimes they end-up paying to third-party companies to build these solutions and as a consequence, they end-up doing a significant investment on building these solutions. Azure Automated Machile Learning is the solution to enable anyone to build the Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning solutions at low cost and with the best quality possible.
