Leverage Power of Machine Learning with ONNX

Have you ever wanted to make your apps “smarter”? This session will cover what every ML/AI developer should know about Open Neural Network Exchange (ONNX) . Why it’s important and how it can reduce friction in incorporating machine learning models to your apps. We will show how to train models using the framework of your choice, save or convert models into ONNX, and deploy to cloud and edge using a high-performance runtime.

Developing Spidey Senses : Anomaly Detection for javascript apps

Anomaly detection is the process of identifying unexpected items or events in data sets. It’s about detecting the deviation from expected pattern of a dataset. It’s like having “spidey senses” for your apps that can detect when there’s danger or something is not right. Attend this session and learn about using anomaly detection in javascript and Cognitive Services API, become a superhero and save the day.

Making neural networks portable with ONNX

The world of machine learning frameworks is complex. What if we can use the lightest framework for inferencing on edge devices? That’s the idea behind ONNX format. Attend this session and find out how to train models using the framework of your choice, save or convert models into ONNX, and deploy to cloud and edge using a high-performance runtime in python, C# or javascript.

Mixed Reality for web developers

Mixed Reality (MR) has entered the web space with WebXR, enabling immersive experiences directly through browsers like Edge, Chrome, and the Meta Quest browser. Dive into this session to harness JavaScript for crafting captivating MR applications. Explore top-notch open-source AR/VR JavaScript libraries to kickstart your projects. Get ready for a hands-on demo that brings the potential of Mixed Reality to life. Join us to push the boundaries of digital interaction and step into the future of web-based MR.

Developing Spidey Sense : Anomaly Detection for apps

Anomaly detection is the process of identifying unexpected items or events in data sets. It’s about detecting the deviation from expected pattern of a dataset. It’s like having “spidey senses” for your apps that can detect when there’s danger or something is not right. Attend this session and learn about using anomaly detection in ML.NET, Azure Stream Analytics and Cognitive Services API; become a superhero and save the day.

Managing IoT Devices in Azure; the simpler way

Collecting telemetry data from devices is a common requirement today for any IoT solution. In this session, we will learn about Azure IoT Central and how it reduces the burden and cost of developing, managing, and maintaining IoT applications. Journey with me as we will walk through different features of IoT Central: connect devices, monitor, configure rules, and integrate with other services. Learn how to customize IoT central to fit the needs.

Wizardry of Prompt Engineering: AI Agents in Javascript

Think of prompts in a language model as magic spells: you say what you want, and like magic, it gives you an answer. Imagine AI agents as wizards, consulting their spell books (in this case, a special kind of AI called Generative Pre-trained Transformer, or GPT) to decide which spells (actions) to cast and when. In this session, we'll show you how to become a wizard yourself by teaching you to craft your own AI agents. Using tools like OpenAI, LangChainJS, and some clever trickery with words, you'll learn the art of prompt engineering. Ready to unlock the magic? Join us and say 'Alohomora!' to the world of AI."

Crafting an AI Mixologist Using Semantic Kernel

Prompts play a crucial role in communicating and directing the behavior of Large Language Models (LLMs) AI. They are queries to elicit specific responses from a model. Semantic Kernel is like a mixologist who looks at available ingredients and crafts new cocktail recipes. Semantic Kernel looks at different plugins, AI Prompts, and memory stores to create an execution plan.

Attend this presentation to learn how Semantic Kernel can be used to build a copilot that’s creative enough to suggest new cocktails. We will craft a copilot that understands the ingredients but not the headache, Cheers!

You will learn:

When to use Semantic Kernel?
How to customize your own AI copilot
The Do's and Don'ts in building a copilot

Mastering the Magic: Coaching AI Copilots for Web Developers

Imagine a world where language model prompts function like spells in a wizard's repertoire—utter the right incantation, and voilà, you conjure the desired result. In this metaphorical landscape, AI Copilots are akin to skilled wizards, diligently consulting their magical spell book—in this case, using Large Language Models—to make informed decisions. This session aims to equip you with the skills you need to effectively 'coach' these AI Copilots. Why? Because coaching isn't just about instructing; it's about mastering the alchemy of prompt engineering. And in a world teeming with data and choices, this mastery serves as your Defense Against the Dark Arts, warding off potential pitfalls and guiding you toward successful, spellbinding outcomes. Join us to delve deep into the magical realm of AI coaching and prompt engineering, and elevate your skill set to a wizarding level.
