 --Eyal Yavor, Co-founder and CTO Meekan

Throughout the previous chapters, we have focused on Vision APIs. Starting with this chapter, we move on to the Language APIs, where we will start with Language Understanding Intelligent Service. Throughout this chapter, we will see how to create and maintain language-understanding models. We will learn how to add simple conversational intelligence to our applications. Finally, we will see how to complete actions on the user's behalf.
