The DOCOMO Character Recognition Android SDK can be utilized to integrate an Android application with the DOCOMO Character Recognition API, enabling English and Japanese character recognition. The API scans an image and returns specific coordinates of individual characters.
Microsoft announced a number of new API features within its Project Oxford artificial intelligence platform. The Face API was updated with facial hair and smile prediction. Other tools were officially opened up for public beta (e.g. spell check, CRIS, video editing, and more).
Six APIs were added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Recognition, Background, and Healthcare. Also added are several SDKs for email marketing firm Klaviyo, ecommerce service Whiplash, and one unofficial PHP SDK for the Marvel Comics API. Here's a rundown of the new additions.
