What is it all about?
Cloud Vision API allows developers to easily integrate vision detection features within applications, including image labeling, face and landmark detection, optical character recognition (OCR), and tagging of explicit content.
* Label Detection - 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. * Logo Detection - Detect popular product logos within an image. * Landmark Detection - 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. * Face Detection - Detect multiple faces within an image, along with the associated key facial attributes like emotional state or wearing headwear. Facial Recognition is not supported. * Image Attributes - Detect general attributes of the image, such as dominant color. * 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.
