In this 2-day AI Workshop, you will learn all about Cognitive Services and what they can mean for you and your business. This course handles each of the different categories within Azure Cognitive Services like Vision, Speech, Language, Search and Decision.

Use computer vision to detect objects and text in images, implement the speech-to-text conversion, leverage the power of Bing to retrieve useful search results, and much more!

Incorporate everything you’ve learned into a variety of applications, so you can easily translate it into your own real-life solutions.
