Most likely you have seen product recommendations in some of your favorite ecommerce sites. These are often presented as "Frequently Bought Together" recommendations which show products that other users have purchased along with the currently viewed product. Recommendations are one of the many ways that Machine Learning can be used to enhance a user’s search experience and can be applied to a large number of scenarios beyond ecommerce. In this demo heavy session, we will discuss topics such as feedback loops, personalization, relevancy tuning and learn how to use technologies such as Azure Search and Azure Machine Learning to build out and enhance the full text search experience of your web and mobile applications.
Applications show intelligence when they can spot trends, react to unusual events, predict outcomes or recommend choices. Learn how to introduce intelligence traits into your apps including; establishing feedback loops, applying big data and machine learning techniques to classify, predict or otherwise analyze explicit and implicit signals, and operationalizing the full stack into the regular usage flow of the app. Most every day apps, from consumer to enterprise can deliver greater customer or business benefit by learning from user behavior and other signals. In this session we’ll take a pragmatic look at introducing real, useful data-driven intelligence into apps by walking through services, code and data needed to make it happen.
Liam is back for part 2 of this video to talk about one of the top features requested for Azure Search, the ability to index blobs.
Back in the studio is a man who I think lives at Channel 9, which is awesome because we absolutely love the cool stuff he talks about! Liam Cavanagh is back to talk about Azure Search.
Modern Application Demo: WingTip Tickets (SaaS Application) and Dartmouth Hitchcock (Patient Healthcare) WingTip Tickets (SaaS Application) - Explore the benefits for several Microsoft Azure SQL Database, DocumentDB, Azure Search, BI, Analytics features in the context of a software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider, Wingtip Tickets, which provides ticketing software to artists and groups. This demonstration centers on the tenant The Archie Boyle Band (a fictitious rock-music tenant). Dartmouth Hitchcock (Patient Healthcare) - Dartmouth Hitchcock Is a leading academic health system that serves patients across New England. They use Cortana Analytics to improve the health through individualized care. Leveraging the power of Cortana Analytics, data points are combined and paired with Dartmouth-Hitchcock's evidence-based care pathways, as the data is transformed into intelligent action.
Back in the studio is a man who needs no introduction, but we'll give him one anyway. Liam Cavanagh is back to talk about Azure Search.
Azure Search is a search-as-a-service in the cloud, providing a rich search experience that is easy to maintain and integrate into custom applications.
Scott talks to Azure Search Program Manager Liam Cavanagh about how Azure Search can search intelligently in multiple languages! You can use Microsoft's language analyzer as well as Lucene's!
Liam Cavanagh explains how the to use Azure Search in your application to give "suggestions" as you type! You can get suggestions almost instantly, choose how your want your input tokenized, and whether Azure Search to give results even if your input is misspelled and apply "fuzzy" logic.
Search has become a popular way for organizations to empower users to explore data in a familiar way.
