Cutting-edge tech companies use Microsoft’s APIs every day
Enhance security with a face
Use the Face API to verify a selfie for smart authentication. Signing in with visual identity verification is becoming an additional security layer for many industries. Microsoft’s Face API can compare portraits, giving it amazing flexibility in uncontrolled scenarios.
Express dramatic moments in an instantQuickly retrieve surprised, happy or sad celebrity images out of millions by combining multiple APIs. Search through video frames to pull out the perfect moment for your content. Never let an abundance of untagged footage be a deterrent for your ability to serve up contextual content when you need it.
Engage your customers through chat
Bring together Cognitive Service APIs and Bot Framework to engage your audience on a whole new level. Build a bot that embodies your brand, addresses your customers’ main questions and escalates to a human operator if needed.

The Emotion API takes a facial expression in an image as an input, and returns the confidence across a set of emotions for each face in the image, as well as the bounding box for the face, using the Face API.
This feature returns information about visual content found in an image. Use tagging, descriptions and domain-specific models to identify content and label it with confidence.
Language Understanding (LUIS) PREVIEW
Our Language Understanding service (LUIS) provides simple tools that enable you to build your own language models, which allow any application or bot to understand your commands and act accordingly.
Speaker Recognition PREVIEW
