Practical Guide to Azure Cognitive Services

By: Chris Seferlis, Christopher Nellis, Andy Roberts

Overview of this book

Azure Cognitive Services and OpenAI are a set of pre-built artificial intelligence (AI) solution APIs that can be leveraged from existing applications, allowing customers to take advantage of Microsoft’s award-winning Vision, Speech, Text, Decision, and GPT-4 AI capabilities. With Practical Guide to Azure Cognitive Services, you’ll work through industry-specific examples of implementations to get a head-start in your production journey. You’ll begin with an overview of the categorization of Azure Cognitive Services and the benefits of embracing AI solutions for practical business applications. After that, you’ll explore the benefits of using Azure Cognitive Services to optimize efficiency and improve predictive capabilities. Then, you’ll learn how to leverage Vision capabilities for quality control, Form Recognizer to streamline supply chain nuances, language understanding to improve customer service, and Cognitive Search for next-generation knowledge-mining solutions. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to implement various Cognitive Services solutions that will help you enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and improve the customer experience at your organization. You’ll also be well equipped to automate mundane tasks by reaping the full potential of OpenAI.

Exploring Further Azure Cognitive Services for Successful KM Solutions

So far in this book, we have explored quite a few ways that AI is enhancing our everyday lives by making us more productive and helping us to predict what could be coming in the near future. As discussed, we are aligning AI enrichments to our formerly inadequate document management systems to uncover our latent data and gaining additional value from that data as a result. That value just covers the standard enrichments included in Cognitive Search, but as with so many other AI capabilities available in Cognitive Services, this chapter will explore the additional enhancements that can be achieved. With the ability to build customized skills using the non-standard AI enrichments available with other cognitive services, we are able to layer in significantly enhanced capabilities as a result. This chapter will look at some of those services where it makes sense to add them to a standard Cognitive Search deployment and...
