CORTANA(!) … and how easy it is to integrate her into your apps

August 18, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

cortanahero+copyMicrosoft has baked some VERY exciting things into Cortana. The line between “voice command” and “speech recognition” has blurred enough to make it more than worthwhile to include support in most of your apps. Come find out how easy it is… as well as what you can (and can’t) do.

Depending upon where the SDK is around the scheduled meeting we might even dive into a Windows 10 implementation! Regardless, we’ll also take a look at the new REST API(s) around speech and recognition.

Kelvin McDaniel is a Tampa-based, Senior Developer at AgileThought, Inc. He graduated with an MBA from Florida A&M University in 2000 and has experienced a range of fields, including insurance and finance. He’s had a love for the various mobile flavors of Windows since the early CE days.

Kelvin acquired his first Windows-based PDA (a Philips Nino) in 1998 while working in New York City. He and Cortana have a SERIOUS thing going on 🙂
