Google Cloud Vision API, released for the first time in March 2017, utilizes machine learning to make it easier to find and discover videos. Therefore, this article appears to inform you about this feature of Google.
Google has begun releasing the open-source Cloud Vision service, and developers can exploit this technology to develop intelligent applications with the ability to manipulate and recognize content in images.
What is Google Cloud Vision?
Google has announced that its Cloud Vision API can provide new visual recognition applications beyond the basics of extracting text from images
Google Cloud Vision API, released for the first time in March 2017, utilizes machine learning to make it easier to find and discover videos, by extracting the metadata used to index the content of the video. Since then, the API contains a library of 20,000 labels, even those not familiar with machine learning or computer vision can still use it.
With Google Cloud Vision, imagery can be manipulated in a variety of ways, such as processing optical character recognition to extract text from a picture or using Google’s Safe search technology to Detects unsuitable images. Google has started testing Cloud Vision since last year, but only for selected programmers, now open to the public.
Characteristics of Google Cloud Vision
Google has disclosed the cost of using the service, namely the first 1000 free images loaded and processed by Cloud Vision
Google has announced that its Cloud Vision API can provide new visual recognition applications beyond the basics of extracting text from images including: optical character recognition (OCR), face detection in the image, facial recognition, branding-logo detection, inappropriate content detection (such as nude photos) and object detection. This is a technology similar to the power of image search on Google Photos and it can recognize anything from flowers, food and animals to places, emotions. Google said it was “training” with algorithms to be able to distinguish “thousands” of different objects.
In addition, Google has disclosed the cost of using the service, namely the first 1000 free images loaded and processed by Cloud Vision and a fixed fee will be charged for each of the next 1000 images. If you send a large number of images, the programmer will receive a discount.
During this beta period, Google will limit developers to use a quota of 20 million images per month. Google says some companies have implemented their services during the preview phase, for example: Yik Yak uses APIs to detect and extract text; PhotoFy uses Cloud Vision 150,000 images a day to select and actively remove pornographic or violent images before they put it on the client’s site.
An example of an image-recognition technology is PhotoFy, a service that allows users to edit images with labeled content from marketing partners. Google Cloud Vision will also allow startup companies like PhotoFy to guarantee. Cloud Vision is the key to those who want to develop smart applications that can handle image rather than spend money on third-party professional image-recognition technologies.
