How Cloud can fight a pandemic using Text Analytics and CosmosDB
Date: May 27, 2021
Time: 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM (Central European)
Topic: Cloud Development
What is this session about? Since COVID pandemic started last year, there were more than 400k scientific papers published on the subject. All those papers are available as CORD dataset. We will see how we can use Azure services to make some insights from this dataset, such as most frequently used medicines, their combinations, or changes in strategy of treatment with time. We will use Text Analytics for Health to extract entities and their relations from paper abstracts, store them in Azure Cosmos DB, post-process using Jupyter with SQL queries, and build interactive dashboards with PowerBI.
Who is it aimed at? Everybody who wants to understand what is the cloud, learn about how to architect and build large data analysis systems, and learn about how technology can help scientific studies.
Why should I attend? In one session we will review multiple Azure services, and see how they all work together to achieve an important result.
