Microsoft AI Immersion Workshop in Seattle – May 9th, 2017

The Microsoft AI Immersion Workshop, to be held in Seattle on May 9th, 2017, is a FREE pre-event to Microsoft Build 2017. The Workshop is a special opportunity for advanced developers interested in creating the next generation of intelligent apps, including enterprise-grade solutions, that use the very latest AI and Machine Learning techniques.

Experienced Microsoft engineers and developers will run hands-on tutorials at the Workshop and help you learn how to build scalable, real-world solutions using Microsoft and open source technologies. There will be many opportunities to connect with developers and data scientists working on Microsoft's products and services, as well as with industry peers.

The workshop will feature a keynote talk on Microsoft's AI investments, followed by a choice of deep technical tutorials that will span areas such as:

  • Artificial Intelligence / Cognitive Apps .
  • Deep Learning.
  • Applied Machine Learning for Developers .
  • Big AI , i.e. the intersection of Big Data & artificial intelligence.
  • From BI to AI , I.e. evolving relational databases & data warehouse solutions into the new world of AI.

The AI Immersion Workshop is being held at the W Hotel Seattle, a few blocks from the Washington State Convention Center, which is the venue for Microsoft Build 2017. Since our Workshop emphasizes hands-on activities and projects, participants are expected to bring and use their laptops through most of the day. We'll provide plenty of food, snacks and caffeine throughout, of course.

Note that attendees who are already confirmed to attend Microsoft Build 2017 will still be required to register at a special registration page for the AI Immersion Workshop – that registration site will open in late March, so please stay tuned to this blog for more information.

We hope to see many of you in Seattle at this event.

The AI Immersion Workshop team.
