Bot-Tender: A Chat Bot Walks into a Bar

Chat bots are a rising and exciting new way to interact with your users and engage them wherever they are. You most probably have a web site and you might have a mobile application. But do you have a chat bot? Be it in Slack, Skype, Facebook or anywhere else – your users are already there, so why not allow them to interact with your service directly from there in a human, natural way?

In this session you’ll get to know the Microsoft Bot Framework and the Azure Bot Service, as we use them to build a real live bot bartender on stage and tackle all of the development issues one by one.

Why Don’t You Understand Me? Build Cognitive Services into Your Apps

Artificial Intelligence is not something exotic anymore. We want to interact with our apps in the most natural way, and we want our apps to act intelligently – personalize our experience, predict what we want to do next, or remove some of the heavy lifting we do on our daily lives. Traditionally, this required building sophisticated AI models, but today – everyone can do it! In this session we’ll see how we can add vision, language and speech into our applications using Azure Cognitive Services, making them smarter than ever before. Stand out from the crowd – bring intelligence into your apps!
