How to Build a Quokkabot

A presentation at Microsoft Ignite the Tour in in Sydney NSW, Australia by Amy Kapernick

Quokkas are the happiest animal in Australia that surprisingly isn’t trying to kill you. But can you really be sure that what you’re looking at is a Quokka and not something more dangerous?

Let’s look at how we can build a quokka identifying chatbot, combining a number of services including Twilio, Azure functions and Custom Vision for ML image detection.

Join me as we look at how to train an ML model to do image detection, then link the Cognitive Services API up with various Twilio communication channels to allow multiple platforms for engagement and accessing the chatbot.
