This is probably one of the coolest technologies Google has ever produced. If you haven’t heard of Cloud Vision API, its basically a bunch of image detection APIs that incorporates with Google’s Machine Learning. Seeing it for the first time at a GDG event, I was blown away by its capabilities (Label Detection being my favorite). From figuring out text and landmarks in pictures, to detecting emotions on people’s faces! I knew I had to try it out myself. Developing this app proved to be more complicated than I expected it to be since I had to learn my way around the Google Cloud Platform. Please take note that Cloud Vision is not an entirely free service and you are limited to > 1000 units per month. But don’t worry, if you are new to the Google Cloud platform, Google will graciously provide you with $300 credits which is sweet!
So please try out my web app and I hope it pushes you to learn new stuff yourself. Just upload an image, then choose which type of detection you want, hit submit and wait for the results!
