Welcome to another Azure Content Spotlight! These articles are used to highlight items in Azure that could be more visible to the Azure community.

Language Understanding (LUIS) is a new offering of Cognitive Services and allows for the development of applications that extract a user's intent from their natural language.  There are three key concepts to LUIS:

Intent - action the user wants to perform
Utterance - the text input from the user
Entity - something relevant to the user's utterance

The About Language Understanding documentation is probably the best place to start getting your head around LUIS.  There is also a live sample application to illustrate how LUIS can be used.

Cheers!
