In this video from the Ignite conference last September, watch the latest additions to the Cognitive Toolkit, which offer a Python API, as well as a GUI to have a non‐disruptive experience from data load through operationalization with all the steps in between.

The goal is to support classification, object detection and image similarity use case. This is a work in progress. In this session, they demonstrate only a classification pipeline.

Artificial Intelligence has transformed vision technology! Carl and Richard talk to Tim Huckaby about his latest work with vision systems for retail, security and more. Tim talks about how AI has fundamentally changed the way you implement vision systems, taking away many of the limitations on number of people tracked, object and face recognition and so on. The conversation digs into the demonstration done at the Build conference for using regular security cameras to implement a real-time safety tracking system on a construction site – aspirational, but coming soon! And of course, there’s a long conversation about privacy. What is fair, reasonable and wise?

This week James Montemagno is joined by Jim Bennett, a Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft, who shows us how to use AI inside a mobile app to identify his daughters’ toys.

In the video below, he walks through using the Azure custom vision service to generate a model to identify different toys, then shows how you can use these models from inside your app, both remotely by calling an Azure service, or locally by running the model on your device using CoreML and Tensorflow.
