This week, Microsoft made a big splash by announcing great new services, including:

  • A Bot Framework to help developers easily design multi-channel multi-language bots
  • Cognitive Services, a set of speech/text/image/entity analysis APIs, currently in limited preview

Providing access to Machine Learning in the Cloud is an interesting way for Microsoft to better position its Azure offering against competing AWS (which does not currently offer similar APIs) and Google's Cloud.
