Cognitive Services give us developers the power to do incredible things with a few lines of code. Microsoft published the fruits of over 30 years of research in the field of artificial intelligence as a collection of APIs. The APIs are bundled up by topics such as face-, and text recognition, translations or search. Interesting public showcases are the Captionbot (https://www.captionbot.ai), a website that can figure out the content of an image or http://how-old.net/, a tool that can figure out the gender and age from the people on a photograph. In this session, we go through the APIs and their capabilities, find out how to get started and take a look at some fascinating demos.
