Similar to the IBM Watson Developer Cloud ( Microsoft's cognitive API collection isn't quite as extensive as IBM's, but is certainly an interesting alternative!
Ryan MacCarthy
I started exploring these APIs yesterday. I'm very impressed with preliminary results, though I'm hesitant to bring any of these into production until I understand what scale looks like. I'm currently rate limited at 5k/mo. If any of the Makers are listening, I have an email out to your team asking for more information. I'm excited about the opportunity.

Microsoft seems to have dropped the Project Oxford title and re-branded this API suite as "Cognitive Services"

Infuse your apps, websites and bots with intelligent algorithms to see, hear, speak, understand and interpret your user needs through natural methods of communication. Transform your business with AI today

Allow your apps to process natural language with pre-built scripts, evaluate sentiment and learn how to recognize what users want.

"Because the Cognitive Services APIs harness the power of machine learning, we were able to bring advanced intelligence into our product without the need to have a team of data scientists on hand."

Aaron Edell, Chief Product Owner, GrayMeta

Cutting-edge tech companies use Microsoft’s APIs everyday

Enhance security with a face

Use the Face API to verify a selfie for smart authentication. Signing in with visual identity verification is becoming an additional security layer for many industries. Microsoft's Face API can compare portraits giving it amazing flexibility in uncontrolled scenarios.

Express dramatic moments in an instant

Quickly retrieve surprised, happy, or sad celebrity images out of millions by combining multiple APIs. Search through video frames to pull out the perfect moment for your content. Never let an abundance of untagged footage be a deterrent for your ability to serve up contextual content when you need it.

Engage your customers through chat

Bring together Cognitive Service APIs and Bot Framework to engage your audience on a whole new level. Build a bot that embodies your brand, addresses your customers’ main questions and escalates to a human operator if needed.

Enable great voice interactions with speech customization

With the Custom Speech Service you can build great voice interactions between your systems and your users. Enhance speech recognition using background noise reduction and complex technical word training.

Emotion API

The Emotion API takes a facial expression in an image as an input, and returns the confidence across a set of emotions for each face in the image, as well as bounding box for the face, using the Face API.

This feature returns information about visual content found in an image. Use tagging, descriptions, and domain-specific models to identify content and label it with confidence.

Our Language Understanding Intelligent Service (LUIS) provides simple tools that enable you to build your own language models, which allow any application or bot to understand your commands and act accordingly.

Identify who is speaking. Input audio of the unknown speaker is paired against a group of selected speakers, and in the case there is a match found, the speaker’s identity is returned.
