API4AI Computer Vision engine is available on Eden AI

We are pleased to announce that API4AI has been integrated into Eden AI API.

What is API4AI ? 

API4AI is a cloud-native computer vision & AI platform for startups, enterprises and individual developers. They build their APIs on a complete cloud technology stack which provides full operability, scalability and stable uptime. API4AI's goal is to create out-of-the-box self-contained AI solutions that can easily be integrated into any application with just a few simple steps.

API4AI provides engines for many computer vision technologies such as:

  • Brand recognition : this solution provides image analysis with brand detection and recognition
  • Face analysis : this solution provides 3 types of face image processing (detection, key points and re-identification)
  • NFSW recognition : this solution provides image analysis and its classification into 2 possible classes (safe for work & not safe for work)
  • Object detection : this solution provides image analysis and detection of objects of various kinds
  • Image anonymization : this solution automatically detects faces and license plates in an image and applies blurring making sensitive areas unrecognizable
  • Text recognition : this solution provides picture analysis and text recognition of both prints and manuscripts and many other computer vision features.

Why do we offer API4AI in addition to other AI APIs ?

Eden AI offers multiple AI APIs on its platform amongst several technologies. We want our users to have access to multiple AI engines and manage them in one place so they can reach high performance, optimize cost and cover all their needs. There are many reasons for using multiple AI APIs :

  • Fallback provider is the ABCs. You can set up a provider API that is requested if and only if the main provider does not perform well (or is down). You can use confidence score returned or other methods to check providers accuracy.
  • Performance optimization. After testing phase, you will be able to build a mapping of providers performance that depend on criterias that you chosed (languages, fields, etc.). Each data that you need to process will be then send to the best provider.
  • Cost - Performance ratio optimization. This method allows you to choose the cheapest provider that performs well for your data.
  • Combine multiple AI APIs. This approach is required if you look for high accuracy. The combination leads to higher costs but allows your AI service to be safe and accurate because providers will validate and invalidate each others for each piece of data.

Interview with API4AI Head of Business Development

We had the chance to talk to API4AI Head of Business Development, Oleg Tagobitsky, who agreed to answer some of our questions :

Can you introduce API4AI?

API4AI is a cloud based platform that allows to get personalized AI and computer vision solutions for businesses in an extremely fast and cost-effective manner. API4AI was created by a team of programmers and data scientists with 10+years of experience in the development of custom machine learning solutions for a broad spectrum of industries for clients across the globe.

After completion of tens and hundreds of projects we realized that many customers actually have similar needs in terms of infrastructure (scalability, safety, worldwide availability) and importance of fast delivering (time-to-market optimisation).

As a result we created API4AI in 2021. Our core technology is a number of ready-to-go APIs for solving typical computer vision and machine learning problems related to detection, classification, segmentation, recognition and regression. These solutions are completely cloud-based and implemented on top of extremely efficient infrastructure providing high reliability and uptime. Whether you want to process 1 image per day or tens of millions - there are no any limits or restrictions - our services scale automatically in such way to process millions of requests with low latency and high throughput.

Who are your customers?

Our customers are the companies and developers who need image processing solutions for automatisation of business processes and/or for reducing cost of data processing. Importantly, our proprietary technologies and platform architecture allow existing services to be adapted (or new ones developed) to meet individual customer needs. No matter how big your company is, what objectives you have or which industry you are from. By combining cutting-edge AI/ML technologies with secure, reliable and scalable cloud technologies, we can help you build the right solution for your scale and needs.

Why did you decide to be integrated in Eden AI?

We see this as a great opportunity to expand customer network and get feedback on our solutions (in comparison with other providers) from the business field.

How to use API4AI on Eden AI

To use API4AI on Eden AI, you just need to the documentation and call the API :

import json
import requests

headers = {'Authorization': 'Bearer your_API_key'}

response = requests.post("https://api.edenai.run/v2/image/object_detection", 
                            data={'providers': "['api4ai']"},
                            files = {'files': open("file_path",'rb')})

result = json.loads(response.text)

Don’t hesitate to check it out with the API or on the platform.

Eden AI is a must have

Eden AI is the future of AI usage in companies. Our platform not only allows you to call multiple AI APIs, but also gives you :

  • Centralized and fully monitored billing for all AI APIs
  • A unified API for all providers : simple and standard to use, quick switch between providers, access to the specificic features of each provider
  • Standardized response format : the JSON output format is the same for all suppliers thanks to Eden AI's standardization work. The response elements are also standardized thanks to Eden AI's powerful matching algorithms.
  • Best Artificial Intelligence APIs of the market : big cloud providers (Google, AWS, Microsoft, and more specialized engines)
  • Data protection : Eden AI will not store or use any data. Possibility to filter to use only GDPR engines.
