Cognitive Services - Episode 1 - Setting the scene [0 h 12 m]

In this episode, I will draw the AI landscape of the Microsoft ecosystem. I want you to be a little more familiar with fundamental topics such as Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Natural Language Processing which might sound a little bit confusing for many developers. Once the high-level concepts will be covered, I'll make an introduction of the Azure Cognitive Services and I'll try to quickly answer the "what's in it for me" question out of real world examples mapped to the various services. If you're a hardcore developer, you might be disappointed by this episode as I will not show code yet, but by the end of it, you should understand when to use what and how to manage customer expectations.
