How I survived 27 years in IT

Over 27 years I have seen some ups and downs in the IT industry in Canberra. While I can't tell some stories, and certainly can't get into the full technical nitty gritty, these are the stories I can tell enough of to pass on some of the lessons I've learned, hopefully without also passing on the scars. Names have been changed to protect the, ummm, innocent?

Realities & Misconceptions about Enterprise Applications of AI/ML and Data

What’s it like to commercialise AI/ML projects on the Microsoft Stack? How do you get leadership teams to approve a data project they might not understand? How do you go from Proof of Concept to Production? This talk will cover my frameworks & workflows to bring together technical knowledge with communication, problem solving and creativity to reach business outcomes with AI/ML and Data. For extra context, we'll also apply these frameworks to some real-world use cases from Blackbook.ai, so the audience can understand how to put things into practice.

An intro to Microsoft Form Recognizer

Forms, Forms, Forms. Many organisations still receive information in the form of hand-written or scanned in paper forms. The manual transposing of this information into computer systems is very slow and is fraught with the possibility of manual error. Although OCR technologies have been around for some time, they have traditionally been very expensive to implement and maintain. Microsoft Azure now provides Form Recognizer capabilities in cognitive services, which makes automatic form data consumption much easier. In this session, Craig will introduce you to form recognizer and demonstrate how easy it is to get started.
