Applying Azure AI and Machine Learning to Box with Box Skills
Announced at BoxWorks 2017, Box Skills a framework for bringing machine learning to your content in Box. Using powerful technologies from the Microsoft Azure portfolio, like image labeling, speech-to-text transcription, natural language understanding and more, you can enhance files in Box and add rich metadata to documents, images, videos and other files stored in Box. Plus, using the Box Skills Kit, you can build your own custom skills that apply Azure AI and machine learning technologies in whatever way you'd like!
At Build, our team will be showcasing how we're using AI and machine learning services from Azure, like the Azure Computer Vision API and the Azure Video Indexer, to help our users better understand and work with their content in Box. You can come check out demos at the Box booth on the Expo Hall or by attending one of the breakout sessions we'll be presenting in:
