Using Cognitive Services with Containers
This episode introduces containers for AI cognitive services.
There are some industries today limited in what they can do with AI. This is because all of the AI services that we've built are running in the cloud, because of regulatory reasons, sensitivity reasons or other reasons (data governance or performance) they're not able to actually call those services in the cloud.
Containers from Cognitive Services opens a whole new world of possibilities enabling customers to take advantage of the AI right in their own control, in their own context, within their own network. Basically on their own terms and in their own control.
Container support in Azure Cognitive Services allows developers to use the same rich APIs that are available in Azure, and enables flexibility in where to deploy and host the services that come with Docker containers. Container support is currently available in preview for a subset of Azure Cognitive Services, including parts of Computer Vision, Face, Text Analytics, and Language Understanding (LUIS).
