In Detail

Microsoft has revamped its Project Oxford to launch the all new Cognitive Services platform—a set of 21 APIs to add speech, vision, language, and knowledge capabilities to apps.

This book will introduce you to all 21 APIs released as part of Cognitive Services platform and show you how to leverage their capabilities. More importantly, you'll see how the power of these APIs can be combined to build real-world apps that have cognitive capabilities. The book is split into three sections: computer vision, speech recognition and language processing, and knowledge and search.

You will be taken through the vision APIs at first as this is very visual, and not too complex. The next part revolves around speech and language, which are somewhat connected. The last part is about adding real-world intelligence to apps by connecting them to Knowledge and Search APIs.

By the end of this book, you will be in a position to understand what Microsoft Cognitive Service can offer and how to use the different APIs.

Style and approach

This book adopts a step-by-step approach, covering the different APIs with a combination of theory and examples.
