Some of the managed connectors of Logic Apps allows you to leverage the prebuilt Artificial Intelligence (AI) APIs available on the Azure Platform. In your workflow definition, you can call several prebuilt AI APIs such as Computer Vision, LUIS, and Text Analysis.

With the available Cognitive Services API operations, you can support various business cases without creating any code.Furthermore, you can quickly build a workflow in minutes instead of days for some of the most straightforward business cases.

Consider the workload you are going to push through these flows as the Cognitive API depend on the tier you choose. These tier range from F0 (Free, three calls per second) to S1 (250 calls per second, charging almost 6 euro per 1000 calls) depending on the performance you require.

Lastly, you can leverage the Cognitive Services also from Microsoft Flow and Azure Functions.
