Session - Integrate the 21st Century Lunch Bell into your Modern Workplace

Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Developer
The session covers the story of "MoCaDeSyMo", a Raspberry Pi taking pictures and uploading them to Azure who is meeting "Homie", a smart language understanding Azure Bot, build with the Microsoft Bot Framework. With the power of the Azure Custom Visions Service, based on a trained image recognition model we are able to tell if the local food truck is already here or not and if we can get some food. In case the truck is here MoCaDeSyMo uses Microsoft Teams to literally ring the lunch bell in order to inform the different subscribers. For further reference, all the information is also assessable through a SharePoint Online site. If your users are not on Teams but on Skype the system also can notify given users via a Skype instant message, so both worlds, Teams and Skype are reachable. Furthermore, as Homie is also an integrated service, users are able to chat with the Bot to ask if the food truck is already here or not, subscribe to different channels and do some base configuration. And with the power of Azure IoT, the service even lights up a LED light connected to a Raspberry PI on your very own desk if the truck has arrived.

The given use case is of course not a real business problem, but the used technology can be applied to real world business questions just by modifying the target of the detection of the cognitive services.
