Cognitive Services (AI)

Building intelligent and supported algorithms into apps, websites, and bots to see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret user needs.

The promise of artificial intelligence and computer science generally vastly outweighs the impact it could have on some jobs in the same way that, while the invention of the airplane negatively affected the railroad industry, it opened a much wider door to human progress." - Paul Allen, Co-Founder of Microsoft.
