Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services offer various commoditized yet powerful and sophisticated services to work with visual content through Computer Vision.

Currently those services can:

  • detect and recognize Faces,
  • classify images or find objects in an image,
  • run spatial analytics on video,
  • understand rich information in an image,
  • process whole videos and get insights from the video,
  • recognize handwriting and ink in applications,
  • provide OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on documents,
  • automatically parse a scan of a paper form.

This fast paced session will introduce the currently available set of services and explain, through sample code and demonstrations, how to use them.

You will learn:

  • About the capabilities of Computer Vision in Cognitive Services
  • See Computer Vision based Cognitive Services in Action
  • How to use the services through demonstrations and sample code
