The SkyBiometry Ruby SDK by Roc Yu allows API interaction to access recognition data. With the SDK, developers can detect faces from URLs, verify face attributes, and identify faces with raw information.
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).
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.
