Creating an AI-Based Application in Visual Studio

The entire suite of Microsoft Cognitive Services is available as a set of REST APIs. The good thing about a REST API is that it does not need a special SDK or library for use in a programming language. A REST API has an HTTP URL endpoint that can accept input in JSON or XML format and give output in the same formats. Because of this, REST APIs are directly consumable in all major programming languages, such as C#, Java, PHP, Ruby, Python, JavaScript, and so on. As this book targets .NET developers, we will restrict ourselves to using C# throughout the book. But, really, the fundamentals of using Cognitive Services remain the same for any language.
