Azure Cognitive Services provides powerful artificial intelligence functionality as a service. Cognitive Services Video Indexer leverages Azure Cognitive Services to implement the analysis and interpretation of video and audio content. This course, Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services: Video Indexer API, explores the functionality of the Video Indexer API to programmatically automate the processing of media assets using the Video Indexer service with C# and Python. First, you’ll explore authentication and authorization using API keys to retrieve access tokens, along with the use of access tokens to call service methods. Next, you’ll focus on the indexing of content and how to effectively process a large number of media assets. Searching and playing content using the API will also be covered, allowing the Video Indexer to be integrated with web sites and applications. Finally, you’ll examine how to edit and correct audio transcripts, along with the use of language translation to provide closed captions to audiences in different regions. By the end of this course, you’ll have a working knowledge of how to harness the power of Azure Cognitive Services for video and audio analysis.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hello. Welcome to my plural psych course, Microsoft Ansel Cognitive Service's video index or a P I. My name's Alan Smith, but I work as a consultant for Active Solution, based in Stockholm, Sweden. In this course, we're going to be gaining an understanding of using as a cognitive service's video indexer through the A P I, which will allow us to automate the processing and indexing video and audio media assets. We'll start out by taking a quick look at the features of the video indexing. Looking at how transcriptions could be generated. Along with identifying key words and topics and sentiments on the media that we're indexing, we'll look at some of the more sophisticated features such a celebrity identification, face detection and seen analysis. We're looking detail about how we can use the A P I to utilize this functionality, focusing on how we can authenticate with the service and call the various methods. We'll be demonstrating counter call the FBI using both C sharp and python their promise for the course. You should have some knowledge of C sharp or python programming, and you will need to have access to a video indexer account. The time of recording the course. There are free trials that you could sign up for some of the demos and as our subscription will be required in order to stop the media that we're going to be indexing in blob storage.
