Microsoft always comes with the developer friendly revolutions. To make & utilise the power of Artificial intelligence and machine learning in our application, Microsoft came up with simple API integration / SDK’s which can be seamlessly integrated with our apps. Microsoft has been democratic the Artificial intelligence and Machine learning in the name of azure cognitive services.

By the utilisation of azure cognitive services, we will be able to use the image recognition services in a CCTV video feed, sentiment analysis, speech language translations, time series analysis etc in a quick turnaround time and accurately without much data science knowledge. Azure cognitive services can be utilised by developers and data scientist seamlessly. It is designed for everyone. Azure Cognitive Services is basically categorised into 5.


Speech to Text – there are 100 of applications which are used for generating speech to text over a decade now. but accuracy and language availability was a major concern. The Speech service in azure will help you to do accurately covert the speech to text in more than 100+ language in a lightning speed.
