For example, vision services can analyze images and videos, speech services can convert speech to text and vice versa, language services can understand natural language and generate text, decision services can help you make informed choices and optimize outcomes, and web search services can provide rich and relevant information from the web.

For each category, we will write a blogpost that explains

  • what it does,
  • how it works,
  • what are some common use cases
  • the pricing of each of the services.

We will also include some code snippets or screenshots to show how to use the service in your projects. Additionally, we will share how it integrates within an existing Azure data platform. We will end each blogpost with a summary of the main points and a teaser for the next category.
