TNWiki Article Spotlight – Face Detection and Recognition with Azure Face API

Dear All,

Welcome to TechNet Wiki Tuesday – TNWiki Article Spotlight

Today in this blog post we are going to discuss about C#: Face Detection and Recognition with Azure Face API  by Emiliano Musso.

I'm big fan of Emiliano Musso articles as he has posted many good articles, example we can say is Basis of Neural Networks in Visual Basic .NET

Recently Emiliano Musso has published a new article called C#: Face Detection and Recognition with Azure Face API.This article explains about creating a simple C# application for working with Face Detection and recognition with Azure Face API.

What we can learn from this article

  • This article gives introduction to what is Cognitive Services
  • Create Cognitive Service account on Azure
  • A simple C# solution which explains about creating Face Detection and recognition with Azure Face API.

Emiliano Musso has explained about what is Cognitive Services
As stated by Azure Cognitive Services Welcome Page Jump , "Microsoft Cognitive Services (formerly Project Oxford) are a set of APIs, SDKs and services available to developers to make their applications more intelligent, engaging and discoverable. Microsoft Cognitive Services expands on Microsoft’s evolving portfolio of machine learning APIs and enables developers to easily add intelligent features – such as emotion and video detection; facial, speech and vision recognition; and speech and language understanding – into their applications. Our vision is for more personal computing experiences and enhanced productivity aided by systems that increasingly can see, hear, speak, understand and even begin to reason"

Among those services, we will see here Microsoft Face API, "a cloud-based service that provides the most advanced face algorithms. Face API has two main functions: face detection with attributes and face recognition" (Cognitive Services Face API Overview Jump ). We'll treat each of those function later in the article, while looking closer at them as we develop our sample solution.

If you are looking to getting started with Cognitive Services and Face Detection and recognition with Azure Face API, then this is best article which explains in step by step basis with images,from this article you can also download the demo sample application for easy understanding .Here is the article link  C#: Face Detection and Recognition with Azure Face API ,hope you all will enjoy reading with sample code download.

See you all soon in another blog post.
