About Visual Recognition

Computer-based visual recognition can identify faces, objects, text, and more in images and videos. Machines use vision technology in conjunction with artificial intelligence and camera software to differentiate between elements.

What is a Visual Recognition API?

Visual recognition APIs use deep learning to identify the different elements of any given image. Through classification training, APIs can correctly separate faces, objects, landmarks, text, and more and even identify those that are not sufficient for work (NSFW).

How does a Visual Recognition API work?

Through vast pre-classified datasets and deep learning modalities, computers utilize artificial intelligence to analyze images and classify various objects within them using deep learning techniques.

Visual recognition APIs allow developers to incorporate this impressive technology into their websites, games, and applications.

Who can benefit from Visual Recognition APIs?

There are many use cases for visual recognition, including:

  • Google image search, which will return images like the one uploaded by the user
  • Improving gaming technology by enhancing the realism of graphics
  • Identifying landmarks while traveling by snapping a picture and having the program return facts and history
  • Helping companies monitor consumer behavior
  • Face recognition login built into applications
  • More accessible shopping experiences - for example, snapping a picture of a favorite outfit and the API returns designer information, where to buy, and price comparisons

Moreover, visual recognition technology is launching us into the future through enhancements in self-driving cars, added security in banking and shopping, and more.

Why are Visual Recognition APIs necessary?

Computer vision technology is a large ecosystem, and visual recognition APIs allow developers to tap into this powerful resource. Through vision recognition, computers can solve complex problems through image analysis. Furthermore, consumers benefit through ease of access for quicker logins, more intuitive shopping experiences, and faster access to information as they explore the world around them, among other things.

The possibilities are endless, and the more intuitive these artificial intelligence programs become the more businesses and consumers benefit.

What can you expect from a Visual Recognition API?

A visual recognition API is only as good as the machine image dataset that it is tapped into. Therefore, developers need to analyze their needs and pair them with the company that offers the solutions they need for their application. Once this is done, the API should provide secure and accurate access that protects the user’s private information, such as location, and returns viable and precise information specific to the use case.
