Exploring Azure Cognitive Services in Azure Advent Calendar 2019


During December of 2019, two Azure MVPs, Gregor Suttie and Richard Hooper are running an amazing initiative called the Azure Advent Calendar. From 1st of December to 25th of December, each day you will have available at least three (3) Azure related videos from Azure community members posted to this YouTube Channel. These videos are for those new to Azure and all the way through to the expert level. This initiative enables you to access relevant Azure content in an easy and quick way for you to get new or refresh your knowledge on some of these services. I highly recommend you to check it out.

And I am pleased to be part of this initiative, with a collaboration of a video talking about Azure Cognitive Services. In this video, I am presenting an overview of the different Cognitive Services available. Then, I iterate each of these services, and explain what features it provides you, and in which kind of scenarios you could use each of these services.

Then, I explain you how you can manage and use these services, by leveraging the APIs and SDKs available.

Last, I explain the main differences between Azure Cognitive Services and Azure Machine Learning, and in which scenarios you should use one or other.

I hope you enjoy the video, and in case you have questions or comments, feel free to contact me.

And Merry Christmas to all of us. 🎅
