Thanks to AI, modern apps are more interactive and intelligent than ever before. Microsoft's Cognitive Service APIs offer easy-to-use machine learning models that are trained on vast repositories of data to offer solutions for common use cases.
Microsoft Cognitive Services are APIs available to developers to make their applications more intelligent, engaging, and discoverable. In this course, Machine Learning and Microsoft Cognitive Services, you will learn about the APIs offered by Azure: vision, knowledge, language, speech, and search. First, you will learn the use cases of content moderation for user-generated content and customizing news feeds and searches for a target audience. Next, you will use APIs for text, image, and video moderation, including customizing the terms or images you want to block using custom lists. Finally, you will explore how the custom decision service uses reinforcement learning under the hood to personalize news feeds, and see how to integrate the service using both the pooled learning mode and the application-specific learning mode. At the end of this course, you will have hands-on experience using these pre-built machine learning models via their REST APIs.
