Topic
Building Apps with Intelligence

Abstract
With the explosion of the cloud comes the explosion of compute power to solve complex problems. We have been playing with artificial intelligence for many years. Cloud services are now powerful enough that you can begin to build AI into your applications as simply as adding a reference to an API and a few lines of code. In this talk, we will explore and demo a few cross-platform APIs for building smarter and more personal experiences into your applications.

Speaker
Brian Sherwin is a Sr. Technical Evangelist with Microsoft from Columbus, Ohio. He has been a consultant and trainer for over 19 years. One of his core passions is helping companies make decisions based on value and not a particular technology. When he’s not trying to figure out some new technology, he spends time reading, Scouting, and drinking enough coffee to keep up with his five kids.

Parking and Entrance
