The WineEngine API offers beverage recognition capabilities that work even with low-quality mobile images. This API not only supports wines, but other beverages such as beer and spirits as well. WineEngine works by comparing a photo of a wine bottle against a collection of reference images, and has an exceptional recognition rate. WineEngine uses both image recognition and neural networks to deal with common user photographs: low resolution, bad lighting and color, improper framing and cropping, off-centre angles and blurriness. WineEngine has also been specially engineered to recognize wine vintages when available on a label. HTTP Basic Auth is used for authentication, and JSON and XML for responses.
Recent technology backed by machine learning is making it possible to recognize people and objects from images, videos, sounds, body parts, speech, phrases, characters, even typing. Developers can find over two-hundred APIs for Recognition on ProgrammableWeb. Here are some top choices.
Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Machine Learning, Recognition, Video, and Politics. Highlights today include an API for random Donald Trump quotes and an API for GitHub Projects programmatic access. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
