Learn how to build intelligent algorithms into apps, websites, and bots so that they see, hear, speak, and understand your user needs through natural methods of communication. Azure Cognitive Services are APIs, SDKs, and services available to help developers build intelligent applications without having direct AI or data science skills or knowledge. It enables developers to easily add cognitive features such as emotion and video detection; facial, speech, and vision recognition; and speech and language understanding – into their applications. This session will cover a basic introduction and live demos using the APIs and Services to showcase how Azure Cognitive Services can be used in modern applications.

[3:20 - 4:20PM] Azure Security and Governance

Adnan Rafique - Office 365 Server & Services MVP

Keeping your Azure resources safe is a joint effort between you and your cloud provider, Azure. You have to make sure your workloads are secure as you move to the Azure, and at the same time, when you move to IaaS there is more customer responsibility than there was in PaaS and SaaS. Azure Security Center provides you the tools needed to harden your network, secure your services and make sure you're on top of your security posture.
