Sitecore Cognitive Services

February 22, 2017

For a few years now I've been working to raise awareness how machine learning could be used with Sitecore to make web applications a much more powerful experience. I've built an integration between Sitecore and Microsoft's Cognitive Services named Sitecore Cognitive Services.

What are Microsoft's Cognitive Services? In the not too distant past, Microsoft released a number of web services using machine learning to the general public under the banner of 'Cognitive Services'.

Catching Exceptions SUGCON North America 2015

October 12, 2015

I put together a special episode of Catching Exceptions for SUGCON North America 2015 to try to capture some small part of what it was all about. It was a wild ride with a lot of great speakers (I may have been one of 'em) but i wanted to be able to let everyone else who couldn't make it see what was going on, what you missed and to encourage you NOT TO MISS IT EVAR AGAIN! 

I may have also contributed to the introduction video of the SUGCON speakers. It was a ton of work but I had so much talent to work with. LONG LIVE THE SITECORE COMMUNITY! 

Big respect to Hedgehog Development, BrainJocks, Akshay Sura and of course Mike Reynolds.
