Helping Santa with the power of Azure AI

Santa has a lot of work during this season. From reading each letter to preparing & delivering gifts, can we help him somehow to reduce his workload?

Enter Azure Cognitive Services, a set of AI services ready-for-use in our applications. For instance, we can use OCR capabilities to retrieve the text of a letter, then process it with Text Analytics to analyze the sentiment and decide if it should go into Santa's Naughty or Nice List.

In this blog post, I will explain how to create a mobile application which uses the aforementioned services to scan a letter and analyze it to assist Santa in this hard-working task.
