With use cases in chat, advertising and photo sharing, the Face.com API now estimates the age of the faces it finds in photos. The service released mood detection last July and has seen the number of developers registered on its platform double in less than a year. The age estimation is hardly perfect, but gives a guideline that joins a number of attributes the service can return from just a snapshot.
The sharing of thousands of online images is a big part of daily social media interaction. Even with the accompanying comments enhanced by expressive punctuation or clever emoticons, however, nothing beats an actual spoken response for an accurate representation of how a person has really responded to an image or what they really think about that image. SayRoom makes this possible by allowing users to actually voice and share their recorded reactions. The service also provides the SayRoom API that allows developers to access these audio messages created by users.
