19:15-19:30 Welcome words

19:30-20:00 Making AI Easy with Cognitive Services / Nicoleta Mihali

Cognitive Services is a set of ready-made machine learning APIs that allow you to breath intelligence into your application using only simple HTTP calls. In this talk, you will be introduced to the Microsoft Cognitive Services APIs and see how you can use them together with the Go programming language to transform your application. In addition, Go has rich support for concurrency, which enables you to perform a large number of API calls simultaneously (e.g.,face detection and identification, emotion recognition, OCR).This is about the power of machine learning at the end of an API call.

20:00-20:30 Announcements, HR lost and found and break

20:30-21:00 Semantic Addressing Extension for Go's net Package / Philipp Brüll
