The Face API finds human faces in photos, videos, or live streams. It also finds and tracks positions of facial landmarks such as the eyes, nose, and mouth.
The API also provides information about the state of facial features -- are the subject's eyes open? Are they smiling? With these technologies, you can edit photos and video, enhance video feeds with effects and decorations, create hands-free controls for games and apps, or react when a person winks or smiles.
The Barcode Scanner API detects barcodes in real time in any orientation. You can also detect and parse several barcodes in different formats at the same time.
The Text Recognition API recognizes text in any Latin based language. It also represents the structure of recognized text, including paragraphs and lines.
Text Recognition can automate tedious data entry for credit cards, receipts, and business cards, as well as help organize photos, translate documents, or increase accessibility. Apps can even keep track of real objects, such as reading the numbers on trains.
