Cognitive Services is a set of APIs that use the power of Machine Learning to enhance your application. Using these APIs, you can quickly add image recognition and analysis; facial recognition, speech recognition, text-to-speech capabilities, and many other features to your application. In this workshop, students will get hands-on experience calling these APIs from JavaScript or .NET applications. They will learn about the capabilities of these APIs, how to test them, and how to call them via a REST web service and using some helpful .NET libraries. To reinforce this knowledge, attendees will work through a set of exercises to write code to call these services.
