AI Builder - Take full advantage of the prebuilt models

AI Builder

 

It's been a few months now that AI Builder has been released in preview within the Power Platform and this month, some of the features it contains are released in GA.

 

Besides the Business Card Reader component, all of the presented options require training with historical data, images or documents. This allows the models, such as Prediction, Text Classification, Object Detection and Form Processing to be adapted to your organization's specificities. But it also means that you have to gather that data, understand it, classify it and process it within the AI Builder tools.

What prebuilt models bring to the table are options to answer use cases where you can leverage common knowledge and expertise that Microsoft has already cumulated. The early example that was already available is the Business Card Reader component in the Canvas App maker.

With this component, you have the ability to take a picture of a business card in your Canvas App and get the extracted name, email, phone number and other valuable data to push it over within your CDS leads for example.

 

New Prebuilt Models

 

Now in preview, a new series of prebuilt models are available as well as extensibility of the Business Card Reader. Here's an overview of what these are about and what they're used for:

  • Business Card Reader: allows you to extract contact information from business cards images. ** Now available in Microsoft Flow and Model-Driven Apps (including Dynamics)
  • Key Phrase Extraction: identifies the main points in a text document, it can extract a list of key phrases from unstructured text documents.
  • Language Detection: identifies the predominant language of a text document.
  • Text Recognition: can be used to extract recognized words from documents and images into machine-readable character streams.
  • Sentiment Analysis: can be used to detect positive or negative sentiment in social media, customer reviews or any text data you want to analyze.

How to use?

Currently, besides the Business Card Reader, all these prebuilt models are only available for integration in Microsoft Flow.

If you want to use them, you will need to be in an environment located in a region that supports AI Builder and create your Flow from within a solution.

Then in your newly created Flow, select the Predict action.

Select the model you want and provide the parameters based on the model (see above for official documentation with details).

Next step will be to act upon the results. For this, you will need to use the JSON Parser, once again using the documentation as provided above.

Once results are parsed you can act upon the obtained data. GO and experiment!
