Sydney AI Hub - Knowledge Mining at Microsoft
Date and Time
Knowledge Mining is the ability to mine unstructured data; think documents, pdfs, emails, images, sound files etc. Using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning allows unstructured data to be ‘cracked opened’ and indexed into which can then be served a multitude of applications; such as a Bot Framework, a mobile app and more..
We have some great presentations on the topic from Sydney AI Hub members, Lumaway and Microsoft AI Engineers from Redmond.
