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.
