By analyzing and matching patterns based on facial features, face recognition can identify individuals in digital images. This technology utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to compare an input face to a database of stored faces to determine if there is a match. It has various applications including security systems, law enforcement, and social media for photo tagging.
Face recognition APIs are an expanding market that counts many providers offering those services, but their performance may vary from one 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 Recognition providers on a single API, Eden AI allows you to use different Face Recognition engines at the same time depending on the media you wish to extract faces from.
