HP IDOL OnDemand Image Recognition API

IDOL OnDemand by HP offers an array of data processing APIs for format conversion, image analysis, indexing, search, and textual analysis. Preview capabilities exist to view how many of these RESTful APIs behave in action. The Image Recognition API scans an image to compare and match objects against a database of objects that the user provides. The HP-hosted public database also includes logos of corporations to match against. The Image Recognition API returns the name of the database object, what it represents, as well as information on where the object appears in the image. The API supports all standard image types (TIFF, JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP and ICO, PBM, PGM, and PPM).
