Google, the search engine giant has innovated AI with its cloud Vision API. The Google Cloud Vision API enables developers to understand the content of an image by encapsulating powerful machine learning models in an easy to use REST API.
It quickly classifies images into thousands of categories (e.g., “sailboat”, “lion”, “Eiffel Tower”), detects individual objects and faces within images, and finds and reads printed words contained within images.
You can build metadata on your image catalog, moderate offensive content, or enable new marketing scenarios through image sentiment analysis.
Analyze images uploaded in the request or integrate with your image storage on Google Cloud Storage. Google Cloud Vision opens projects to whole new level of possibilities;
Insight From Your Images
Easily detect broad sets of objects in your images, from flowers, animals, or transportation to thousands of other object categories commonly found within images. Vision API improves over time as new concepts are introduced and accuracy is improved.
Detect Inappropriate Content
Powered by Google SafeSearch, easily moderate content from your crowd sourced images. Vision API enables you to detect different types of inappropriate content from adult to violent content.
Power of the Web
Vision API uses the power of Google Image Search to find topical entities like celebrities, logos, or news events. Combine this with Visually Similar Search to find similar images on the web.
Optical Character Recognition (OCR) enables you to detect text within your images, along with automatic language identification. Vision API supports a broad set of languages.
In the past Google and other search engines have been struggling when it comes to image and search. This latest innovation from Google has bring the world a step more closer to making the most out of images and search. Google Cloud vision API give developers access to:
Detect broad sets of categories within an image, ranging from modes of transportation to animals.
Explicit Content Detection
Detect explicit content like adult content or violent content within an image.
Detect popular product logos within an image.
Detect popular natural and man-made structures within an image.
Optical Character Recognition
Detect and extract text within an image, with support for a broad range of languages, along with support for automatic language identification.
Detect multiple faces within an image, along with the associated key facial attributes like emotional state or wearing headwear. Facial Recognition is not supported.
Detect general attributes of the image, such as dominant colors and appropriate crop hints.
Integrated REST API
Access via REST API to request one or more annotation types per image. Images can be uploaded in the request or integrated with Google Cloud Storage.
You see the web is becoming better and better in its own way.
