Here are some interesting concepts about data in IoT applications.

Kevin Saye shares with us on the IoT Show: all data has value, data needs to be preserved in its raw form for later usage and you want to store this data in a cost effective manner. Curious about these statements? Watch this very interesting episode about these concepts illustrated with a demo showing Azure Data Lake Analytics used to analyze data from IoT devices collected through Azure IoT Hub.

Let’s be clear: I love AI and Data Science, but it’s still good to focus on basics like web development.

This video on Channel9 takes a deep dive into what’s new in ASP.NET Core! In this session, we’ll take a look at the new features in the latest ASP.NET Core preview, including improved support for building descriptive Web APIs, HTTP/2, a new in-process IIS hosting, support for health checks, and much more!

Yesterday, I was in Philadelphia presenting a session at AI Discovery Day on Computer Vision Cognitive Services.

The labs for this session are on GitHub: https://github.com/Azure/LearnAI-Bootcamp/tree/master/lab01.1-computer_vision

These events will be taking place across the US. Here are a few dates and links to registration.

While pundits decry the lack of interest in STEM fields, there are a few kids out there who really like to push the envelope. Take, for example, the story of David Hahn. The story reads like a sci-fi coming of age comedy, but it’s true.

The saddest part of the story, however, is how David met his end. It seems like someone with his intellect and drive should have been at least have been mentored or received a scholarship. With the recent push towards “STEM ALL THE THINGS,” David’s life can be a cautionary tale.

At the recent Azure AI Fest, I had mentioned the work being done to train self-driving car AIs using video games like Grand Theft Auto V.

And, yes, Virginia, a kid on his own PC at home can compete with a multi-million dollar company at the same task. For reference, see Facebook, Microsoft, and Apple. True story.
