The Cloud Skills Show: AzureML, PyTorchLightning & More!

Watch the video here:

The Cloud Skills show is a livestream brought to you by the Developer Relations team in the UK. Each week the team are joined by guests from the around the world to talk about technical skills. We will also cover the latest Microsoft Cloud news and announcements and introduce guests from communities across the tech ecosystem.

This week, we looked at Machine Learning in more detail, specifically the integration of AzureML and PyTorchLightning, as well as learning more about Natural Language Processing.

Our guests were:

  • Aaron (Ari) Bornstein - an AI researcher with a passion for history, engaging with new technologies and computational medicine. As an Open Source Engineer at Microsoft’s Cloud Developer Advocacy team, he collaborates with the Israeli Hi-Tech Community, to solve real world problems with game changing technologies that are then documented, open sourced, and shared with the rest of the world.

  • Tal Baumel - a PhD graduate from the Computer Science department at Ben Gurion University. Tal worked on the Natural Language Processing Project under the supervision of Professor Michael Elhadad - focusing on automatic summarization. Tal is now working as a data scientist for Microsoft on Conversation Intelligence in Dynamics 365 Sales Insights.
