Labs provides early adopters with an early look at emerging Cognitive Services technologies. These technologies are still under development and do not have the same performance quality as generally available APIs, but don't let that stop you from discovering and trying the newest Cognitive Services technologies. Please try these new technologies and let us know what you think.

Project Nanjing


An API to calculate isochrones - time and distance-based recommendations for enterprise route optimization. Ex: identifying the nearest service technician, or the best meeting point between two locations.

More on Project Nanjing

Isochrones describe the area that can be reached given a mode of transportation and optionally predicted traffic at a given time of day. Using isochrones, one can answer questions such as “where should I live if I don’t want to commute more than 45 minutes”. Project Nanjing provides time-specific isochrones for the most accurate search across time and space.
