Add intelligence to your Python apps using cognitive services

Saurabh Kirtani (~saurabh2)




To get their apps to the ‘next’ level, a lot of developers explore the ways to add machine-based Artificial Intelligence to applications – more so, with the spurt in IoT applications and bots today. This can be challenging for a developer who has never ventured into ML and AI before. In this session, we will try to break that barrier – by using Cognitive Services in Python apps. These are a host of intelligent services which you can directly consume in your applications – such as, detecting emotions based on facial expressions, detecting and recognizing human faces in images, speaker recognition, computer vision, etc. In this talk, we will explore on how to integrate such services into Python applications, supported by live demos.
