Maybe you’ve seen the video online that allows a blind person to “see” using an AI that can recognize faces and objects. You’d be surprised now how easy it is to use those seeing APIs for your own projects! Microsoft’s Cognitive Services, formerly called Project Oxford, is an evolving portfolio of REST APIs and SDKs enabling developers to easily add intelligent services and leverage the power of natural data understanding and machine learning with Azure cloud. This talk will introduce you to vision and speech APIs that can recognize objects, detect emotions, read text from photographs, and more. Learn how to get started making your own applications that have that personal touch.
