Google Unveils Cloud Vision API

Thursday Dec 3rd 2015 by Developer.com Staff

The tool allows developers to create apps that can classify the content of photos.

On Wednesday, Google rolled out a beta version of its Cloud Vision API, a new image processing tool that runs on its cloud development platform. With the API, developers can create apps that understand the content of images. It includes a feature called Entity Detection that identifies the most dominant item in an image and a feature called Landmark Detection, which can identify well-known natural and man-made structures. It also has a Safe Search Detection feature that can block inappropriate images.

For now, developers interested in using the tool can only gain access by filling out a form to request permission from Google.
