Nude Detect is an image recognition API geared towards filtering images containing nudity, pornography or otherwise lewd conduct. This API supports image file types including: WEBP, PNG, JPG/JPEG, BMP but not GIF or TIFF files. JSON formatted, Nude Detect combines parametric and non-parametric approaches to distinguish between images of swimwear or lingerie and those of a pornographic nature.
Nine APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Recognition, Software-as-a-Service, Fonts, and Travel. Included today is an API for Webconverger, for Web kiosk accessibility. Here, we summarize the new additions and how they can assist developers.
