Eyedea, a recognition service located in Czech Republic, has released the Eyeface SDK, a kit for developers interested to detect faces, analyze age and gender, and detect eyes, nose, and mouth. The SDK works with C/C++ libraries for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X environments. The possibilities of this SDK include to target advertising, count people, and analyze profiles. Eyedea claims to be obsessed with accuracy, optimization, flexibility and speed.
Czech-based eyedea Recognition has released a face detection API. It joins a list of some 38 in our API directory related to face detection. It's hard to tell how these offerings will stand out from the crowd. (By way of comparison, last October I wrote up Skybiometry.) Once the identity, gender, approximate age, and the ability to count the number of people in a room have been nailed, what else is there?
Google has added a new AR API, the WebXR Hit Test API, to Chrome Canary, the version of Chrome where it tests bleeding edge, experimental functionality. The API is designed to "[help] immersive web code place objects in the real world" and provides a single API that performs a raycast.
