The Salesforce Einstein Vision API allows developers to harness the power of image recognition to build AI-powered apps fast. Einstein Vision enables you to tap into the power of AI and train deep learning, a branch of machine learning, models to recognize and classify images at scale. You can use pre-trained classifiers or train your own custom classifiers to solve unique use cases.
The possibilities are limitless with applications that include:
Visual search - Expand the ways that your customers can discover your products and increase sales.
Brand detection - Monitor your brand across all your channels to increase your marketing reach and preserve brand integrity.
Product identification - Increase the ways that you can identify your products to streamline sales processes and customer service.
The API consists of Einstein Image Classification, which enables developers to train deep learning models to recognize and classify images at scale, and Einstein Object Detection, which enables developers to train models to recognize and count multiple distinct objects within an image, providing granular details like the size and location of each object.
Before you can access the Einstein Platform Services APIs, you must create an account and download your key,after which you use your key to generate an OAuth token. Your key can be used to access both the Einstein Vision and Einstein Language APIs.
This API is extremely well documented and supported.
This article is part of a multi-part series where we discuss interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2017. Business APIs are covered in this segment. The APIs were chosen by our researchers, by popularity according to website traffic, and by mentions on social media.
Eight APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Internet of Things, Email, and Bitcoin. Highlights include the Vantiq API for building applications that automate systems, resources and operations, and the LaterPay API, for developers to monetize applications
