Tutorial at O’Reilly AI Conference, NYC, June 27-29 2017

Do you have a lot of unstructured, comment or other “note type” data? Would you like to learn how to extract actionable business insights from this data?

My colleague (Galiya Warrier) and I will be running a tutorial, at the O’Reilly AI conference in June, where we will teach you how to do just that.

In this tutorial, we’ll get you to extract key information from the unstructured data, by getting you to train a Named Entity Recognizer. Using those entities, you’ll create a graph database with the weighted edges showing relationships between the entities. Finally, we’ll close out the tutorial by leading you through the process of querying the graph data by the use of natural language using a conversational interface chatbot.

And the Colonel lost.

And the software runs on a $35 Raspberry Pi.

Last year in October we released the preview of Azure Analysis Services, which is built on the proven analytics engine in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services. With Azure Analysis Services you can host semantic data models in the cloud. Users in your organization can then connect to your data models using tools like Excel, Power BI, and many others to create reports and perform ad-hoc data analysis. I joined Jeremy Chapman on Microsoft Mechanics to discuss the benefits of Analysis Services in Azure.
