Azure Content Spotlight - Cognitive Services

The Azure Developer Community blog has moved! Find this blog post over on our new blog at the Microsoft Tech Community:

Welcome to another Azure Content Spotlight! These articles are used to highlight items in 

Azure that could be more visible to the Azure community.

This week's spotlight highlights Cognitive Services containers. These containers offer a mechanism for taking Azure Cognitive Services to the IoT Edge as well as running behind infrastructure that might prevent external network activity. In This Week in Cognitive, Noelle LaCharite provides a great summary of the state of these services and Microsoft's motivation for providing them for their customers.

Additionally, Christoffer Noring provides an entertaining introduction to using the Cognitive Services API in Cognitive Services API — I need your clothes, boots and your motorcycle including examples using the Azure CLI to create the service and using curl to call the services.
