From Power BI to AI – Enrich Your Biz Intelligence w Artificial Intelligence

AI is everywhere – and now even included in Power BI. Sometimes AI might be very apparent when you enrich your data with predictions by explicitly calling an Azure Machine Learning webservice in Power Query. Sometimes it might by hidden in a nice little context menu when Power BI is automagically explaining the reason of a difference or a change over time in your data to you. No matter if you are a business user, analyst or data scientist – Power BI has AI capabilities tailored to you. In this session we will cover how you can integrate and leverage the use of language R, how to integrate an Azure Machine Learning Service when loading data, what kind of insights Power BI is capable of delivering automatically, how you can create a complex new column without typing a single formula/function, how you can explore your data by asking questions in plain English, ... and more! Sounds like a lot of content? I omitted most of the slides in favour to spend the time in live demos instead. Come in this session to learn how you can enrich you very own Business Intelligence with Artificial Intelligence and make the step up from Power BI to Power AI.

How to Use the PowerPoint Feature in Microsoft Teams

There are always new features that are introduced by Microsoft in their productivity tools that, at this point, can warrant a monthly status update about what's new and what's changed. This one I feel deserves extra attention. If you share a PowerPoint presentation during a Teams Meeting, this one will make your life better. When you are ready to present, instead of sharing your screen as usual, choose the PowerPoint option! If your PowerPoint has audio or video to play, check the "include computer sound”, then choose from either the suggested PowerPoint option (usually the one you worked on most recently) or Browse.Selecting Browse gives you the option to find it and upload it from your computer or OneDrive.Figure 1 – Choosing computer sound preference in the PowerPoint option in Microsoft TeamsAfter this, you will be greeted with the view in Figure 2: Figure 2 – Selecting a presentation to display in the PowerPoint option in Microsoft TeamsThis is the main screen your participants will see.Here you can see your slides and click through them to display on the main screen.If you added notes to the slide, they will appear in this section. This only visible to the presenter, not the participants. No need to reference and handwrite your notes!You can also use these arrows to navigate the presentation backwards and forwards. This section is visible to both you and the participants. Because this section is available to everyone, you have two options for how you want this presentation to go.The Free mode or the Default mode is represented by this icon:  Your participants can use the < > button to skip ahead or go back to any slide. This does not affect anyone else's view.For the Guided mode, you can click the icon, which will then look like this:  In this mode, your presenters can see what number slide they are on (slide 1, etc.) but are unable to use < > to navigate the presentation.Both methods have their uses, so it’s up to you to determine how you want your presentation to go. I hope this was informative and helps you bring your A++ game when conducting presentations on Microsoft Teams.If you need assistance with any Microsoft productivity tool, ArcherPoint can help!
