Cognitive Services is a set of APIs that use the power of Machine Learning to enhance your application. Using these APIs, you can quickly add image recognition and analysis; facial recognition, speech recognition, text-to-speech capabilities, and many other features to your application. In this presentation, you will learn about the capabilities of these APIs, how to test them, and how to call them via a REST web service and using some helpful .NET libraries.
