A week at Ignite

30 Sep

Last week I arrived at Orlando, Florida, to participate in Microsoft Ignite and to talk about our Readymade AI concept.

I’m a developer by heart, so I kicked of Ignite with an pre-event AI developer bootcamp – a full day of examples on how to use AI services from Microsoft presented by James Carpinter, Microsoft Regional Director in New Zealand. It is always great to see some real solutions using the Microsoft AI services – and not least how they are doing it.

First day of the actual conference started with a vison keynote by Satya Nadella. I spend the rest of the week together with companies and Microsoft employees talking about our Readymade AI concept. It was really great to see how well it was received, how people understood the concept and to hear how people could see it work in their company. So awesome! :)

Tomorrow I’m heading back home to Denmark, and will spend next week working on the feedback I received here at Ignite. Thank you to everybody that had time to meet with me – and have fun, Orlando – we might meet again next year :)

Project Malmo

A few days ago, Microsoft made their platform for training AI agents using Minecraft public – the platform is called Project Malmo (formerly know as Project AIX). Project Malmo is a Minecraft mod and supports many different programming languages.

“The Malmo platform is a sophisticated AI experimentation platform built on top of Minecraft, and designed to support fundamental research in artificial intelligence.”
