About the event

AZUGPT - Event driven apps in Azure / Making sense of unstructured data with AI

NDC Conferences Porto, one of the biggest developer conferences on the planet, returns on April 25th and, as is tradition, DevScope is one of the event’s partners.

Over the next week, Alfândega Porto Congress Centre will host over 100 sessions and 8 workshops delivered by almost a hundred speakers from all over the world. Taking full advantage of NDC’s return to our city, DevScope is opening its facilities to the public on April 26 to host the sessions “Event driven apps in Azure” and “Making sense of unstructured data with AI”.


Session 1: Event-driven apps in Azure
Session 2: Making sense of unstructured data with AI
Speakers: Laurent Bugnion and Henk Boelman
Event Language: English

Event driven apps in Azure
Using Azure, it is easier than ever to build event-driven web applications, for example using Azure Functions and the Azure SignalR service. Laurent Bugnion, a Cloud Advocate for Microsoft, will show you how he implemented such a solution to solve a real-world problem. This presentation will dive into a production application called Timekeeper, that Microsoft uses to run some of its live TV shows such as the Hello World daily show.

Making sense of unstructured data with AI
Do you have a lot of data in unreadable formats such as PDFs, images, and audio files and want the ability to extract this rich information, analyze it, and act on it?

In this session, you’ll learn how to combine a set of Cognitive Services like Azure Cognitive Search to make sense of this data in a short amount of time. We’ll discuss AI concepts, like the ingest-enrich-explore pattern, skillsets, leveraging cognitive services, knowledge bases, and connecting all these elements together to build an intelligent search experience into an application.
