Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Barry Luijbregts, and welcome to my course, Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services: The Big Picture. I am an independent software developer and architect with a passion for the cloud. Nowadays, applications need to more intelligent and do things like understand text, analyze images, and recommend purchases. These things are hard to create by yourself. Azure Cognitive Services provides these capabilities and more, and does all the heavy lifting for you. Some of the major topics that we will cover include why you should use Azure Cognitive Services, what they are and what they can do for you, and how to work with them. By this end of this course, you'll have a solid understanding of what Azure Cognitive Services are, why you should use them, and how to work with them. You do not need any specific knowledge before beginning this course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Azure Cognitive Services with the Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services: The Big Picture course, here at Pluralsight.
