“A High-Tech future is finally on its way”, “Azure is really powerful”. These are the thought I have after finished watching Microsoft Build 2019. It reminds me of Marvel movie Iron man. If you ever watch Iron Man, you can expect those High-tech features to come in the near future. Let me share with you what has been introduced in this year Microsoft Build.
Azure Speech Service
What is Azure Speech Service? Well, the official definition is “the unification of speech-to-text, text-to-speech, and speech-translation into a single Azure subscription. It’s easy to speech-enable your applications, tools, and devices with the Speech SDK, Speech Devices SDK, or REST APIs.”
This is basically a feature provided by Microsoft, to help translate speech-to-text, text-to-speech, Speech Translation, Voice-first virtual assistants. During Microsoft Build 2019, Microsoft engineer, with just normal smartphone, laptop.
Microsoft has improved this service by improving the speech recognition ability and also the ability to understand jargons from different region/country, and also understand industry jargons that only applicable to that industry.
It’s nothing new, but it takes a lot to call one a truly useful personal assistant. This year, Microsoft focus on making the assistant multi-Domain, multi-turn, and multi-agent connect. Which basically means that the assistant will connect multiple service agent, multiple domains and is not a one-way command taking assistant, instead, an assistant that can have a human-like conversation.
In the demonstration during Microsoft Build 2019, Microsoft personal Assistant can literally help you to do whatever you want within the ecosystem.
Scheduling, checking the calendar, checking colleagues’ calendar, Microsoft Personal Assistant can help you handle it.
Azure Spatial Anchor x HoloLens Technology
Ever imagine having a meeting virtually, with the person actually appearing in front of you? No, we are not there yet, but we are near already. This year, Microsoft introduces Azure Spatial Anchors.
What are Azure Spatial Anchors? Based on Microsoft Definition, “Spatial Anchors is a cross-platform developer service that allows you to create mixed reality experiences using objects that persist their location across devices over time.”
This technology will empower developers to build spatially aware mixed reality applications. And the most “wow” features happen when team up with Microsoft HoloLens.
One can literally join a meeting using an avatar to represent themselves, and can actually read the documents on the wall, pick it up, enlarge, draw on it, get inside it and many more.
Although it’s not as advanced as what has been shown in Iron Man movie, but we are in the right direction now.
So now, I believe you will believe me when I say the high-tech future is near, right?
So, now is a good time to equip yourself with Azure knowledge skills now buy joining our Azure training.
