Microsoft's state-of-the-art cloud based face algorithms to detect and recognize human faces in images.
Part of Microsoft Project Oxford, Face APIs provide state-of-the-art algorithms to process face images, like face detection with gender and age prediction, recognition, alignment and other application level features. ##Face detection with attributes extraction## You will get the detected faces with rectangles indicating the face positions and a series of face related attributes, include landmarks, pose, gender and age by giving an image. ![][1] ##Face Verification## Given two detected faces, you will get result indicates whether the two requested faces belong to the same person. ![][2] ## Face Grouping ## Provide service a set of unknown faces, it will automatically divide them into several groups based on similarity. ![][3] ## Face Identification ## You can use Face Identification to recognize persons' identities. ![][4] Hashtag:#ProjectOxford [1]: https://az712634.vo.msecnd.net/mlapis/v1/media/FaceDetection.png [2]: https://az712634.vo.msecnd.net/mlapis/v1/media/FaceVerification.png [3]: https://az712634.vo.msecnd.net/mlapis/v1/media/FaceGrouping.png [4]: https://az712634.vo.msecnd.net/mlapis/v1/media/SimilarFaceSearching.png
