  1. Allow more requests per second over face apis

    We currently have applications that we want to identify a person on various cameras through a Person Group, unfortunately we have a limitation of 10 calls/second on a Face Api. So, we managed that creating a lot of face apis with the same pictures, just to be able to recognize more "persons per second" inside a same group. Imagine identifying persons entering an Event for instance.

    We need a way to scale that person group rate limit.

      • Support more kinds of faces, like animal faces and drawings of faces.

        Want to be able to find animal faces as well, such as dogs in family photographs.

        Also when you draw a face (like in photoshop), it doesn't get recognized even though as a human I can tell it's supposed to be a face with these emotions.

        This isn't a very important idea.

                • 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.

                                  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.…

                                      • Support utf-8

                                        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?
