Build your own KITT with Azure Cognitive Services

English Introductory and overview Technology

Cognitive services can recognise objects, faces, describe images, understand speech and language, perform advanced searches and so much more. You can use these services with Azure Bots and IoT to build human interactive cars and houses, or simply interact with clients. If you are a developer and know nothing about Azure Cognitive Services, this is a good place to start. Disclaimer: Azure Cognitive Services can't drive a car. They're not 18 years old yet.
