Microsoft Cognitive Services

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is transforming how business works, across all sectors; driving resource management and manufacturing efficiencies, changing the hospital care landscape for patients and providers, and helping financial services meet shareholder, customer, and regulator needs. AI can help predict retail customer behavior and streamline supply chain management, and, in the public sector, it can increase the speed and quality of government services. Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services – tools that infuse apps, websites, and bots with intelligent algorithms to see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret a user’s needs, through natural methods of communication – allow businesses of every size to harness AI’s power.

This whitepaper gives an overview of how Cognitive Services can launch real-world business transformation and illustrates AI’s potential to inform product development, modernize operations, further employee impact, and strengthen customer engagement. Get your copy today!
