Face detection – or facial detection – is an AI technology mainly used to find human faces in digital images. It also detects sex, age, emotion of persons on an image. Face detection is a technology that can be used to enable real-time surveillance and tracking of people in a variety of industries: security, biometrics, law enforcement, entertainment, personal safety, etc.
Face detection APIs are an expanding market that counts many providers offering those services, but their performance may vary from a provider to another depending on your images. They also have different costs and processing times: it is in your best interest to test a variation of them before choosing the right one.
By aggregating several Face Detection providers on a single API, Eden AI allows you to use different Face Detection engines at the same time depending on the media you wish to extract faces from.
