#CognitiveServices – #Bing Web Search API, review feature and #Azure sample code

Hi !

Today’s post is still on the Cognitive Services new features, and today is for the main Bing feature: Search. Let’s start with the official description from the documentation

The Bing Web Search API provides a similar (but not exact) experience to Bing.com/Search (overview on MSDN). The Bing Web Search API lets partners send a search query to Bing and get back a list of relevant search results. This includes webpages and may include images, videos, and more.

The API is so cool, there are some basic search criteria like query and count, and you can also add additional filters like searchSafe of location (mkt). So, like yesterday I created a client library with the sample console app.

The search results includes response urls, last date of search, and other interesting information like “related images”. The next animation performs a search with my name and open the images thumbnails in a browsers
