Azure AI services for intelligent apps

English Intermediate Other

Azure AI Services is a set of Services providing Artificial Intelligence features to business applications, without being an expert in machine-learning algorithms. Hence, the services are targeted to developers without a specific machine-learning experience, who want to apply some "intelligence” to their solutions. Azure AI Services are the “evolution” of Cognitive Services which are no longer existing as separate offering. The range of available features allows to solve common business problems, such as analyzing a text, analyzing an image, browsing a document content, language understanding and translation, etc. During the session, I will give you an overview of the existing AI services, I will explain the Azure resources you need to create for accessing the services and the pricing tiers. And I will show how to consume some of the services. For example, calling the built-in AI services existing in Power BI, or creating your own function to call the API from Power Automate or other tools. At the end of the session, you’ll have a clear understanding of the available AI services offering, how to run them in your environment and how to take costs under control.
