  1. 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.…

        • 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?

            • 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"

              • Support for more than 1,000 faces in face lists in Face API

                • 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.

                  • Could you please tell me how to send binary image in python?

                    In face API.
                    headers = {
                    # Request headers
                    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
                    #'Content-Type': 'application/octet-stream',
                    'Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key': '',
                    }

                    To detect in a URL (or binary data) specified image.

                    How could I fill in binary array(which means Image) in the POST?

                    • 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.

                      • A way to determine if the image is a photo or a real person

                        A confidence value returned in the json to indicate whether the face detected/recognised is not a spoof attempt. eg a person is not holding up a photo to the camera

                        • Pure java sdk

                          Would be great if a pure java sdk would be available e.g. via maven. It is already available in the Android package and can be extracted from the aar. Why not provide the jar files itself.

                          • 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.

                                This is strange if HTA is not allowed to use Asure API because of being blocked by the cross-domain limitation. Is there a solution for HTA programs to use Asure APIs ?

                                  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.
