Krysta Svore, principal researcher at Microsoft, demonstrates the new Microsoft Quantum Development Kit.

The Quantum Development Kit makes it easy for you to start experimenting with quantum computing now and includes: · A native, quantum-focused programming language called Q# · Local and Azure-hosted simulators for you to test your Q# solution · And sample Q# code and libraries to help you get started

In this demo, she walks through a few code examples and explains where quantum principles like superposition and entanglement apply. She explains how quantum communication works using teleportation as your first “Hello World” inspired program. And keep watching to see more complex computations with molecular hydrogen.

Mahesh Yadav, Software Engineer on the Intelligent Edge team, joins the IoT Show to unbox the Microsoft Vision AI DevKit (aka.ms/iotshow/visionaidevkit), a smart camera for the intelligent edge.

The developer kit uses the Qualcomm’s Vision Intelligence 300 Platform which uniquely runs machine learning with hardware acceleration delivering results in milliseconds which is perfect for connected car or connected factory scenarios where you need low latency as well as support offline scenarios.

In this episode, you will see how easy it is to bring up AI on the edge with Azure IoT Edge and Azure Machine Learning.

The DevKit includes a sample AI model that identifies 183 objects including people, laptops, chairs and more. The highlight of the show is a real-time camera demo that asserts that both Mahesh and Olivier really are people.

And it’s always good when an AI affirms your personhood. 😉

Dr. Ranveer Chandra gives Scott Hanselman an introduction to Azure FarmBeats at Microsoft Ignite 2019.

FarmBeats is a business-to-business offering available in Azure Marketplace. It enables the aggregation of data from farms — across sensors, drones, robots, satellites, and weather providers — and generation of actionable insights using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models built on fused datasets.
