In chapter 2 (production.ipynb) of fastbook, we are required to get the Bing Image Search API key from Microsoft. Some of my study group mates had problems getting the key and @go_go_gadget suggested I share the solution in the forum in case others are finding it difficult too .
Here are the steps I followed:
Go to the Microsoft page and create an account. There is a 7-day trial free period
Then go to the Bing Search API page here . You’ll see 2 options Bing Search APIs and Bing Search APIs v7. In the Bing Search APIs v7 section, choose Add
It will take you to page where you’ll see several API urls and 2 API keys.
Hope someone finds it useful.
