Microsoft Announces General availability for Face API, Computer Vision API and Content Moderator

Cognitive Services

At the first ever Microsoft Data Amp online event, Microsoft announced the general availability of Face API, Computer Vision API and Content Moderator API from Microsoft Cognitive Services.

Microsoft Cognitive Services enables a developer to create the next generation of applications that can see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret needs using natural methods of communication.

With Face API, developers can build applications that can detect human faces and identify their age, gender, facial points, headpose as well as their emotions. Similarly, the Computer Vision API helps you to understand the contents of an image by tagging objects into categories like celebrities or actions in an image etc. It can also detect landmarks and handwriting, although Handwriting detection is in preview.

Finally, the Content Moderator API provides content moderation of text and images using machine learning, augmented with human review tools. A preview of Video moderation is also available as part of Azure Media Services.

Here is a closer look at what these APIs can do for you.

For more information on how to use these services, please refer to the following:
