  1. Non Storage Operations

    Would be good to have support for operations that do not require to store images for 24hours. Now the service can not be used for confidential images. This would be especially interesting for companies in financial and health industries.

    • Add liveliness detection

      Please add liveliness detection (or blink checking / moving face) to FaceAPI so that i can be used for authentication.

      I understand uber use face api to verify drivers, however in personal tests ive seen you can easily get around the detection by taking a photo of a photo.

      • Make confidence level available for face detection

        It would be very useful to know how confident the system is that something is or isn't a face when it returns bounding boxes. AWS Rekognition currently does provide this information.

        • Face detect automatic orientation correction

          Faces can be on their side or upside down depending upon EXIF orientation or general composition of the photo. For example, a landscape photo of baby lying on its back will have the baby's face on the side. Right now, the face api does not correctly detect the face when it's not properly oriented. It would be great if face detect could automatically determine an orientation of the photo that provides a correct face box.

          • Improve facial features detection

            The facial features of many if not all 'similar' celebs are very different compared to the person's picture, the most major differences are in the shape of the nose, face and lips and in many cases the eyes. Here's one of the examples.

            • Include Detection process into Identify process

              Please consider putting the Detecting process into the Identifying process. This way, we can shorten our code and have less request to your api.

              • Please add support for video that would work just like the emotion API.

                This is currently unusable for video at a decent framerate because of pricing, and the complexity of doing things frame by frame. Why not support video just like the Emotion API? Also, bonus points for allowing us to pipe output of the Face API into the Emotion API to cut down on processing time, if that's plausible.

                • Identify if person is looking at the camera

                  Hi, I'd like to know if it is possible to add a feature that tells is the recognized face is looking into the camera or very near to it. This would improve the stuff we do here greatly.
                  thanks!

                  • Photo Requirement API

                    For issuing an ID card, we ask patrons to upload a photo that meets requirements similar to the College Board SAT photo standard available at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/sat/register/policies-requirements/photo. It would be nice to have an API that validates the standard.

                      • Add a few more face landmarks for the top and the bottom of the face, to derive dimensions and locations of landmarks relative to the face

                        Add a few more face landmarks that will detail the top and the bottom of the face. In other words, if I want to derive that someone's mouth is 1/3 of the way up from the bottom of their face or that their eyes are 1/3 of the way down, it would be great if the API exposed additional landmarks that would provide me the entire face's relative dimensions to be able to "layout" a person's facial features with relative x/Y coordinates. Or... is the rectangle precise enough for this - my testing doesn't seem to indicate that the rectangle…

                          • Ability to use face and Emotion API with one single file upload

                            To be able to use faceAPI and EmotionAPI with one single file upload.

                            I'm using the boxes param quite well at the moment but still I need to send the picture to both endpoints and that's very costly to us just because I want to extract only the face orientation + emotions

                            Or the best option should be to enable face orientation of emotions.

                            • Date-aware grouping/recognition

                              I think it might be useful to add a way to train, group or recognize faces based on dates.

                              Train based on how a person looked like let's say for every year (or any date/time span).

                              Run recognition on a photo based on a Date/Time (probably something from the photo metadata)

                              • Face API: Custom confidence threshold for Find Similar / Identify

                                For the usecase of "find the most similar face from a group or face list, even if it's not the same person", it would be nice to be able to provide custom thresholds for Find Similar and Identify.

                                There seems to be a fairly high internal threshold by default, the idea is to be able to override that.
                                Also please include default thresholds in the docs (if any).

                                  Happy to announce this was released to the service as part of our July 2016 update and we recently updated the C#, Python, iOS, and Android packages on GitHub to support these changes as well.

                                  Finding Similar Face API: Added optional mode field enabling selection of two working modes, default matchPerson works the same as before, and new mode matchFace removes the same person filtering. If mode field is not specified, the behavior is the same as the past release.

                                  Face Identification API: Optional user-specified confidenceThreshold is enabled for user to define the confidence threshold of whether one face belong to a person object.

                                  Please take a look and provide feedback or requests for additional features.

                                  Thanks!

                                • Make confidence level available for age and for gender

                                  Actually confidence level is only available when identification is performed, it would be cool to also have confidence level for age and gender.

                                    • Can we buy a license for an FaceAPI SDK that works offline?

                                      In some case, we would prefer to use the face API offline especially in the financial and Pension services industry. We would like to run face API on out customer profile images. We might not be allowed to upload these to an external server.

                                        • /verify should also take persistedFaceIds

                                          Currently /verify only takes faceIds, it could also take persistedFaceIds from personobjects which would improve ease of use
