Language Understanding Intelligence Service (LUIS) is part of Azure's Cognitive Services. It's built on the interactive machine learning and language understanding research from Microsoft Research. Luis provides the capability to understand a person’s natural language and respond with actions specified by application code. In this session we'll examine how this powerful feature can be integrated into applications, offering a more natural interaction with a device.
