  1. 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…

  2. Vision or sound api's for monitoring and publishing ocean wave engeries and spectrums at popular city beaches or world pro surfing venues.

    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.

  3. Add the ability to get localized language support for image description with Vision API

    In order to allow a broader use of the service, it would be great to have the ability to specify the language in which we want to get the image description via Vision API.

    We are researching options to bring this capability to Computer Vision.

  4. Allow control over minimal spacing between words in recognized text

    Sometimes it now recognizes spaces that arren't there, like "Company" is recongnized as "Co" "pa" "ny". It would be nice to indicate the minimal space between word regions, it the regions are very close together it can the merge then and return a single word.

  5. OCR returns Chinese Traditional instead of Simplified

    I tested "Read text in images", or named OCR, and found this.
    I selected Chinese Simplified, but I got Chinese Traditional character.
    Please see the fourth char.

  6. Product Recognition with Vision API

    The ability to recognize products could enable the following Retail Scenarios:
    1. Build Shopping Lists by taking pictures of products
    2. Detect On Shelf Availability
    3. Detect Misplaced Products on Shelves
    4. Comparison Shopping
    5. Contextual Shopping (Shazaam for shopping)

  7. Generate proportional thumbnails

    It may be nice to have a feature whereby the generated thumbnail retained the proportionality of the original. In this mode the width and height parameters would be interpreted as not-to-exceed values.

  9. Train the vision api for Automatic Number License Plate Plate Recognition (ANPR)

    Current API Vision don't do well with license plantes. This capability will enable lots of scenarios, for example: Customer segmentation in highways, customized parking Customer Experience, etc

    Thank you for your request. After looking into it, we have decided not to pursue this feature at this time.

  10. Quality setting on smart thumbnail generation

    I would like to be able to control the quality of jpg output from the "generate a thumbnail" API

    I want to use the generated thumbnails on mobile with the smart crop option as it prevents crops which just centre a image and often chop the subjects in the photos head off but the returned quality of the jpg is by far much lower than would I would like to use within a app (which has a high DPI)

    I guess a 0-100 quality setting which jpgs often provide would be great

  11. Fraud detection: finding out if the photo has been photoshopped

    I'm working on a case to detect if a picture has been tampered with, mainly in the field of car Insurance, but could be applied to different fields. Are there any pointers on this?

  12. Photo geotagging

    Wouldn't be cool to have an API Function to recognize a building and returning its location ?
