        • Publish ML Model version

          We think we have found a "recent" change in the matching fidelity of the face-comparison model. However, it is impossible to tell because any changes to the model are kept secret/not published.

          Please please supply a model version or stamp with each response. We appreciate the need for continuous improvement, but step changes must be flagged up!

                • Add additional facial features so that the age detected is more appropriate even with different angles.

                  Basically, we demoed the Intelligent kiosk at an event and it wasn't accurate at all when it came to predicting the age.

                        • Detect Emotion with Face API for android studio

                          When we try to recover the emotions of faces on a picture, is not possible. We can recover faceAttributes.smile but not faceAttributes.emotion. I saw that in C# or Java we can do it but with android studio it's not possible. How can I recover that information please?

                          • Add options to force generation of new face ids with the same image url

                            Now the face detection API will simply ignore the content of the image URL and return a previously generated face ids given the same URL. So if I uploaded another image to the same URL, and run the face detection API, I would get an inaccurate result. Would you consider to give user an option to force redo the face detection with the same URL?

                            • Use Face IDs stored in face lists in the Identify Request

                              In order to use the "Identify", I first need to detect faces in an image using "Face Detect", then I have to pass those to faceIds (at most 10 at a time) to be used in identification. Those faces expire after 24 hours.

                              FaceIDs stored in LargeFaceList (or FaceList) are not expired and can be used until they are deleted. It would be nice to be able to use those faceIds in the "Identify" process as well. I'm aware that "Find Similar" can be used in context with a face list however, that one also requires a "Face Detect" call.…

                                Currently every special character like ä,ö,ü in german language are translated into a "?". For example if you set the name of a person to "Müller", it will be stored as "M?ller".

                                Could you update the Api so it supports utf-8?

                                  • Integrate with Azure Active Directory

                                    I can see a lot of workplace applications of the Face API in a business environment and most revolve around identification of an employee (or maybe recognition that an individual is not recognized as an employee). We can manually create and synchronize person groups from Active Directory, but this would be such a common pattern that an integration would be very nice and could increase adoption because it "just works"

                                      • Allow people to exist in more than one group

                                        At the moment there is no way to have a person in two groups as the only way to add a person to a group is to create them, it would be great to be able to copy or add via the persons UUID.

                                        We are looking at having multiple groups so one can be training whilst the other is being queried updated.

                                        • Return make-up as floats instead of bools

                                          Alot of times lip/eye make-up will be detected when it is not there. This issue would be easily fixed by increasing the detection threshold, just like you can do with detected beards, since it returns a float value. However, makeup returns a boolean value. I'd like this to be a float value instead, just like with facial hair.
