Cognitive Services

Put intelligence APIs to work

Microsoft Cognitive Services let you build apps with powerful algorithms to see, hear, speak, understand and interpret our needs using natural methods of communication, with just a few lines of code. Easily add intelligent features – such as emotion and sentiment detection, vision and speech recognition, language understanding, knowledge and search – into your app, across devices and platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows, keep improving, and are easy to set up.

Check out the Cognitive Services APIs

Vision

State-of-the-art image processing algorithms help you moderate content automatically and build more personalized apps by returning smart insights about faces, images, and emotions.

Speech

Processing spoken language in your applications

Language

Allow your apps to process natural language, evaluate sentiment and topics, and learn how to recognize what users want.

Knowledge

Map complex information and data in order to solve tasks such as intelligent recommendations and semantic search.

Labs

Take an early look at emerging Cognitive Services technologies. Early adopters who do not need market-ready technology can discover, try and provide feedback on new Cognitive Services technologies before they are generally available.
