The Betaface SDK, with Face Detection and Recognition, is a Windows DLL library that applies complex algorithms designed to detect a set of pre-programmed facial characteristics within images as well as videos. These features include general face info such as position, size, angle, 8 standard facial landmarks, gender, age ethnicity, and more. Extended measurements can include more detailed specific information like facial hair, glasses, hairstyle, skin color, clothes, background color, and more. The SDK can be accessed from multiple environments, as long as a call is made to DLL, COM object, or .Net.

This article is part of a 10-part series about interesting APIs that were added to our directory during 2016. Cognitive Computing 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.
Fourteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories such as Voice, Notifications, Stocks, and Recognition. Featured today are four APIs that use machine learning technology to provide image recognition and visual search services. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
Developers can get quick and simple access to sophisticated image recognition software thanks to Google’s Cloud Vision API. The tool leverages machine learning to identify the contents of images for classification across thousands of categories, and here it is used to determine traffic volume.
