Mixed Reality & Artificial Intelligence at Devoxx 2019

Thank you for attending the Devoxx France conference. I hope you enjoyed the Mixed Reality & AI session. As promised, here is all the content used during the session and some pointer to start experimenting with Hololens and AI right now, even if you don’t own a device.


Augmented Reality is a thing, Mixed Reality is another world. Add some Artificial Intelligence inside, you’ll get a futuristic solution right now. Just like what Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale described in Back to the future.
We’ll build an app for Hololens that leverage AI from the cloud to help the user to identify what’s around him.
You’ll see what Hololens and AR can do, how to create a Mixed Reality app and how an app can quickly get some killer features using Azure Cognitive Services.
