ProgrammableWeb first covered Animetrics last year as its Facial Recognition API was picking up speed in the government and law enforcement space. Expanding on its initial success, Animetrics has now released a commercial version of the API: FaceR API. This is Animetrics first taste of the commercial space.
Of the many APIs we published this week, ten were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those ten, which included the Video Preview API. The API was released by the HeyWatch company, cloud video encoding leader, to allow users the ability to create image previews from a video. These screen shots act as a video story board, providing viewers with the ability to see with more detail what the contents of a video are. To learn more about the Video Preview API visit the HeyWatch site as well as the Video Preview API blog post.
Animetrics, a leading developer of 2D to 3D face recognition and face creation solutions, provides the Animetrics Face Recognition that can be used to detect human faces in pictures and match them against a set of known or documented faces. This tool is specifically useful for applications for the fashion and online entertainment industries, or for law enforcement or military intelligence where accurate identity resolution is a necessity.
