Course Content:

Module 1: Introduction to AI on Azure

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is increasingly at the core of modern apps and services. In this module, you'll learn about some common AI capabilities that you can leverage in your apps, and how those capabilities are implemented in Microsoft Azure. You'll also learn about some considerations for designing and implementing AI solutions responsibly.

  • Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
  • Artificial Intelligence in Azure

Module 2: Developing AI Apps with Cognitive Services

Cognitive Services are the core building blocks for integrating AI capabilities into your apps. In this module, you'll learn how to provision, secure, monitor, and deploy cognitive services.

  • Getting Started with Cognitive Services
  • Using Cognitive Services for Enterprise Applications
  • Lab: Get Started with Cognitive Services
  • Lab: Get Started with Cognitive Services
  • Lab: Monitor Cognitive Services
  • Lab: Use a Cognitive Services Container

Module 3: Getting Started with Natural Language Processing

Natural Language processing (NLP) is a branch of artificial intelligence that deals with extracting insights from written or spoken language. In this module, you'll learn how to use cognitive services to analyze and translate text.

  • Analyzing Text
  • Translating Text
  • Lab: Analyze Text
  • Lab: Translate Text

Module 4: Building Speech-Enabled Applications

Many modern apps and services accept spoken input and can respond by synthesizing text. In this module, you'll continue your exploration of natural language processing capabilities by learning how to build speech-enabled applications.

  • Speech Recognition and Synthesis
  • Speech Translation
  • Lab: Recognize and Synthesize Speech
  • Lab: Translate Speech

Module 5: Creating Language Understanding Solutions

To build an application that can intelligently understand and respond to natural language input, you must define and train a model for language understanding. In this module, you'll learn how to use the Language Understanding service to create an app that can identify user intent from natural language input.

  • Creating a Language Understanding App
  • Publishing and Using a Language Understanding App
  • Using Language Understanding with Speech
  • Lab: Create a Language Understanding App
  • Lab: Create a Language Understanding Client Application
  • Use the Speech and Language Understanding Services

Module 6: Building a QnA Solution

One of the most common kinds of interaction between users and AI software agents is for users to submit questions in natural language, and for the AI agent to respond intelligently with an appropriate answer. In this module, you'll explore how the QnA Maker service enables the development of this kind of solution.

  • Creating a QnA Knowledge Base
  • Publishing and Using a QnA Knowledge Base
  • Lab: Create a QnA Solution

Module 7: Conversational AI and the Azure Bot Service

Bots are the basis for an increasingly common kind of AI application in which users engage in conversations with AI agents, often as they would with a human agent. In this module, you'll explore the Microsoft Bot Framework and the Azure Bot Service, which together provide a platform for creating and delivering conversational experiences.

  • Bot Basics
  • Implementing a Conversational Bot
  • Lab: Create a Bot with the Bot Framework SDK
  • Lab: Create a Bot with a Bot Freamwork Composer

Module 8: Getting Started with Computer Vision

Computer vision is an area of artificial intelligence in which software applications interpret visual input from images or video. In this module, you'll start your exploration of computer vision by learning how to use cognitive services to analyze images and video.

  • Analyzing Images
  • Analyzing Videos
  • Lab: Analyse Images with Computer Vision
  • Lab: Analyze Images with Video Indexer

Module 9: Developing Custom Vision Solutions

While there are many scenarios where pre-defined general computer vision capabilities can be useful, sometimes you need to train a custom model with your own visual data. In this module, you'll explore the Custom Vision service, and how to use it to create custom image classification and object detection models.

  • Image Classification
  • Object Detection
  • Lab: Classify Images with Custom Vision
  • Lab: Detect Objects in Images with Custom Vision

Module 10: Detecting, Analyzing, and Recognizing Faces

Facial detection, analysis, and recognition are common computer vision scenarios. In this module, you'll explore the user of cognitive services to identify human faces.

  • Detecting Faces with the Computer Vision Service
  • Using the Face Service
  • Lab:Destect, Analyze and Recognize Faces

Module 11: Reading Text in Images and Documents

Optical character recognition (OCR) is another common computer vision scenario, in which software extracts text from images or documents. In this module, you'll explore cognitive services that can be used to detect and read text in images, documents, and forms.

  • Reading text with the Computer Vision Service
  • Extracting Information from Forms with the Form Recognizer service
  • Lab: Read Text in IMages
  • Lab: Extract Data from Forms

Module 12: Creating a Knowledge Mining Solution

Ultimately, many AI scenarios involve intelligently searching for information based on user queries. AI-powered knowledge mining is an increasingly important way to build intelligent search solutions that use AI to extract insights from large repositories of digital data and enable users to find and analyse those insights.

  • Implementing an Intelligent Search Solution
  • Developing Custom Skills for an Enrichment Pipeline
  • Creating a Knowledge Store
  • Lab: Create and Azure Cognitive Search Solution
  • Create a Custom Skill for Azure Cognitive Search
  • Create a Knowledge Store with Azure Cognitive Search
