“Search in more secret way”

OverallI am using cognito from last 5-6 years. It is always good to keep things more secret.
ProsYou can search the data in other gazets like phone or laptop. It will not create the history also it will protect you from securing your password. If you open your account in cognito and forget to logout . Ypu should not be worry as if someone wants to reopen it, It will again ask password. It will keep your privacy to you only noone can get to know about your data and search.
ConsI never find that needs to be updated while go incognito. You can give direct option on home screen to go incognito.

“one of the best tool kits for image recognition in machine learning”

OverallWe tried this kit in order to get started with machine learning with a developed framework that is available in the market and then ramp up using internally developed models.
Prosit is a very intuitive and easy to get started product as regards machine learning. One can get started on this very fast and very minimal coding experience is needed to use this product. It has good interfaces that come along with it to get started and build models.
ConsThe one suggestion that I would give is to expand the # of models in the gallery - although there are many models available most of them are image based and hence for a use case other than image recognition, we need to have more models in the gallery.

“Makes the world of deep learning accessible to everyone without sacrificing any features! ”

ProsMicrosoft Cognitive Toolkit demystifies much of the complex concepts of deep learning for the average user. The ease of use was the primary advantage in my case. While I do have experience with programming and a bit of machine learning, I had none with deep learning or large scale processing. I was able to use the languages I already know such as C++/ Python to deal with algorithms. There is a plethora of algorithms already available so one does not have to implement any from scratch. You can customize the available too. The speed for processing data sets is very impressive, and the accuracy is high as well, whether running on Cpu or Gpu. You can even host it on azure if you'd like to expand your computer capabilities. All around fantastic software, definitely recommend for those interested in ML and DL solutions.
ConsNothing everything was great so far in usage.

“Open source, high quality AI”

ProsYou can't get much better than an open source, fully supported, feature rich product. Then you find out it is fully backed by Microsoft. If you are doing anything in the AI space with cognitive learning and algorithms, you need to be using this product.
ConsBecause it is open source, it isn't like you will get the full Microsoft customer support experience. There is a good community out there. But it could be better. It is a bit of a learning curve to get up and running. However, you need to take that with a grain of salt. We are talking about highly scientific and intellectually challenging workloads.

“Beautiful API Toolkit to experience cognitive services. Best in Class REST API and Documentation.”

Pros1. Vision API Best API for Computer VIsion. Must have for all Image processing projects 2. Test to Speech is cool API that comes up with extensive Support as well
Cons1. Providing more code samples will be beneficial for Developers 2. Adding more third-party integration is a good idea too

“Nice tool to start with machine learning”

OverallAn open source tool with a lot of features and you will find a lot to learn.
ProsBeing a .Net developer you can find it easy to use as it supports c# and can be set up on Windows easily . It is even great with using Azure networks and GPU. This tool also has a good interface for anyone who just started with machine learning.
ConsWhile it's core api's are written in c++, you should have knowledge of c++ an also Python would be great , otherwise it would a bit hard to get started with CNTK.
