        • Recognize if object on picture is displayed completely or partially

          Would be great if I could see if object is completely displayed on picture or partially.
          Say, I upload a picture of car.
          I get correct tags, correct description (car parked on a parking lot, car parked on street, car parked outside, etc) but I want to know if picture shows full, complete car or just a part of it (like say, driver's door or rear side of car).

          My explanation is specific to car but I think it will be useful for many other objects like building, person, etc.

          • Provide a way to access uploaded images.

            I want to see the images being uploaded by my users for OCR processing. Maybe add an option to store them in blob storage.

            • Add Wolof Language support in OCR API

              I need your OCR API to support the Wolof language (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolof_language) which alphabet is pretty close to French except for a few characters. Thus, I think it should be easy to integrate it the OCR API

              • I would like a sleepiness detection function using Vision API

                I'm looking for the solution to detect if human (e.g., a driver) is sleeping or not, so I would like a sleepiness function using Vision API.

                • "Adult" image detection needs more training

                  Specifically, many close-ups of male privates are not identified as either Adult or Racy. A bit of a shocker..

                  Can't post examples here for obvious reasons..lol

                  • Specify more precisely what I am looking for in an image.

                    I want to detect any evidence of a person. Neither gender, nor face recognition is important. I get some of this in description tags, but often get false positives when the image contains no persons. For example, in the attached image "man" shows up as a description tag. It seems like if I specified "person" in the request, the algorithm might give fewer false positives.

                    • Return rectangle for smart cropped thumbnail

                      Since the quality of the returned thumbnails is far from anything useful for most use cases, it would be amazing to get just the rectangle the API would have used. This would be tremendously useful to roll our own resizing/cropping clients, with our preferred quality settings and file formats.

                        • Count Persons and Items

                          It would be great to be able to count the number of persons or items in a image no matter what angle the picture was taken... from above, frontal, back, or any other angle.

                          Is this possible today?

                          • Increase rate limit for standard tier

                            I have a concern using the Standard tier in a production environment.

                            My users can select and upload multiple images and I'd like to make 3 calls per image (1 analyzer, 2 thumbnails), naturally preferring to make those API calls concurrently.

                            Doing so, even with a single user uploading 4 images, when done concurrently, I'm over the 10/sec rate limit and this doesn't even begin to factor in multiple users trying to upload at the same time.

                            With rate limits so low I'm either going to have to make a bunch of Vision API accounts and do some kind of…

                                • Vision API: Provide an SDK that does image binarization step at the client

                                  For most computer vision applications, the first step is to remove color information and binarize the input image. We are proposing, to have Microsoft release an SDK (python or javascript or iOS or Android or others) that performs the binarization part at the client. This significantly saves the amount of data transferred to the server. It can reduce the amount of data pushed to server as much as 12x and sill have no impact on recognition quality. In addition, its savings for microsoft in incoming bandwidth and CPU time spent. Its also a win for the clients where they have…

                                      • Improve OCR to detect 7-segment display

                                        The OCR does not detect 7-segment LCD displays that many devices have. It would be a game changer if it worked with this as there are many practical use cases.

                                          Vision and/or sound api's for monitoring and publishing ocean wave energies and spectrums at popular city beaches or world pro surfing venues. Could be used in conjunction with NOAA oceanographic services and raspery pi weather stations to provide realtime 'current' conditions at major city beaches or ocean facing ports. Vision api's might be able to provide local government services with usage statistics of ocean resources such as the number of people entering or leaving the water, the number of people on a beach or attending a surf carnival.
