Computer vision is an area of artificial intelligence (AI) in which software systems are designed to perceive the world visually, though cameras, images, and video. There are multiple specific types of computer vision problem that AI engineers and data scientists can solve using a mix of custom machine learning models and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions - including many cognitive services in Microsoft Azure.

The Computer Vision service enables software engineers to create intelligent solutions that extract information from images; a common task in many artificial intelligence (AI) scenarios.

Image classification is a common workload in artificial intelligence (AI) applications. It harnesses the predictive power of machine learning to enable AI systems to identify real-world items based on images.

Object detection is a form of computer vision in which artificial intelligence (AI) agents can identify and locate specific types of object in an image or camera feed.

Face detection, analysis, and recognition are important capabilities for artificial intelligence (AI) solutions. The Face cognitive service in Azure makes it easy integrate these capabilities into your applications.

Optical character recognition (OCR) enables artificial intelligence (AI) systems to read text in images, enabling applications to extract information from photographs, scanned documents, and other sources of digitized text.

Processing invoices and receipts is a common task in many business scenarios. Increasingly, organizations are turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to automate data extraction from scanned receipts.
