Overview of this book

Dreamforce 16 brought forth the latest addition to the Salesforce platform: an AI tool named Einstein. Einstein promises to provide users of all Salesforce applications with a powerful platform to help them gain deep insights into the data they work on. This book will introduce you to Einstein and help you integrate it into your respective business applications based on the Salesforce platform. We start off with an introduction to AI, then move on to look at how AI can make your CRM and apps smarter. Next, we discuss various out-of-the-box components added to sales, service, marketing, and community clouds from Salesforce to add Artificial Intelligence capabilities. Further on, we teach you how to use Heroku, PredictionIO, and the Force platform, along with Einstein, to build smarter apps. The core chapters focus on developer content and introduce PredictionIO and Salesforce Einstein Vision Services. We explore Einstein Predictive Vision Services, along with analytics cloud, the Einstein Data Discovery product, and IOT core concepts. Throughout the book, we also focus on how Einstein can be integrated into CRM and various clouds such as sales, services, marketing, and communities. By the end of the book, you will be able to embrace and leverage the power of Einstein, incorporating its functions to gain more knowledge. Salesforce developers will be introduced to the world of AI, while data scientists will gain insights into Salesforce’s various cloud offerings and how they can use Einstein’s capabilities and enhance applications.

Summary

In this chapter, we covered how to use the Einstein Vision Services API using CURL to create and train the dataset, and then use the trained dataset to ask for predictions. We also covered how to build an end-to-end Node.js application using a modern day JavaScript framework such as React, and using a middleware such as Express. With Heroku, deployment of applications from the local machine to the server is painless. This chapter covered how to deploy a node-based application on Heroku. Throughout this journey, we touched upon some of the newest ES6 JavaScript syntaxes. Do not worry if you did not get the ES6 syntax right--it gets easier with practice and experience. Mozilla Developer Network (MDN) has some great documentation on ES6 and TypeScript syntaxes. You can take a peek here to learn ES6 and enhance your skills:
