AWS AI London Meetup

We had three fantastic speakers lined up for an interesting talk surrounding: ‘Enriching your .NET Applications with AWS AI Services’.

Joining the session is Tom Harris, CTO at ClearBank, who will be delivering a lightening talk for our attendees, and Neil Syrett, Staff Engineer at ClearBank, who will be discussing ‘Wardley Mapping 101’. For the main talk, we welcome back Prasad Rao, Principal Solutions Architect at AWS, who is presenting a session on ‘Building AI-enriched applications with .NET on AWS.’

With AWS AI services, you can add capabilities like image and video analysis, natural language processing, personalized recommendations and translation, virtual assistants, and speech recognition. You can use each service standalone, or you can use them together to build a sophisticated AI-capable application. In this demo-heavy session, discover how to iteratively enrich your existing .NET applications with AI capabilities using AWS SDK for .NET

Prasad Rao is a Principal Partner Solutions Architect for AWS based out of UK. His focus areas are .NET Application Modernization and Windows Workloads on AWS. He leverages his experience to help AWS Partners across EMEA for their long term technical enablement to build scalable architecture on AWS. He also mentors diverse people who are new to cloud and would like to get started on AWS.

If you’re interested in attending, the talk will be held in person on the 9th of February 2023 at Trainline HQ. Come along for some refreshments, food, a great talk in some great offices and great chance to dotNETwork.
