Microsoft adds services to Azure Government Cloud

Although adding artificial intelligence to applications is easier since the public preview of Cognitive Services in Azure Government, Microsoft announced it is offering an assistance program to help agencies take advantage of the technology.

Cognitive Services are a series of machine-based language, vision, search and knowledge application programming interfaces that help developers add emotion and video detection; facial, speech and vision recognition; and speech and language understanding to applications.

The Cognitive Services White Glove Program is designed to help with visioning, development and scaling AI-enabled applications. Clients will work with experts at Microsoft and the Azure Government engineering team on designing and building apps with Cognitive Services.

The company also announced the general availability of Azure Media Analytics on Azure Government. Azure Media Analytics is a collection of speech and vision components that uses machine learning technology to improve video analysis. The available tools – which include speech-to text capabilities, motion and emotion detection, facial redaction and optical character recognition -- could help law enforcement speed the analysis of evidence collected from video surveillance, the company said.
