General availability: Azure Applied AI Services
Published date: 25 May, 2021
To help developers build AI solutions faster, we are announcing a new category of services called Azure Applied AI Services. These services combine Azure Cognitive Services with task-specific AI and business logic, so developers can accelerate building AI solutions for common scenarios, such as document processing, customer service, and extracting insights from content. Applied AI services include Azure Bot Service, Azure Cognitive Search, Azure Form Recognizer, Azure Metrics Advisor, and Azure Immersive Reader, which many developers already know and love.
Starting today, Azure Bot Service makes it easier to build, test, and publish text, speech, or telephony based bots through an integrated development experience. Azure Metrics Advisor, now generally available, automatically detects and diagnoses issues to minimize downtime.
