By the end of this project, you will have successfully created an Azure account, logged into the Azure Portal, created a Computer Vision Cognitive Services resource and use it by executing API calls to generate predictions. You will learn to execute API calls to the pre-built Computer Vision resource through a series of tasks which include creating the appropriate resource to realize the API calls and then providing a clear example through the Microsoft API portal on how these can be executed. The skills learned in this guided project will provide the foundation to understanding and implementing Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning solutions in Microsoft Azure.
