  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. HTA does not work with Asure API because of cross-domain

    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 ?

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. On celebslike.me focus more on facial features like nose shape and size if lips as these are the most common differences in 'similar' faces

    The algorithm of celebslike.me doesn't accurately match the shape and size of nose and lips of the image and the similar celebs which doesn't seem to make sense as u cannot find any similarity between yourself and them.
    Regards,
    Nimesh

  13. Internal scaling of Emotion service

    The current quotas for 2 per minute for video processing can be got around by spinning up multiple API instances in Azure Portal. Could (or indeed is) this be internalised so performance is managed by a single instance of the service? I have 30000 videos to process, so creating and deleting multiple instances of the service, and managing keys in my app is less attractive to me than paying for a faster rate of processing.
    The current model costs me no more per video it just adds to coding incnvenience.

  15. 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.

  16. How to use the EMOTION API features in our own android app?

    I have seen the EMOTION API on Github and used the sample but i am making a smart music app of my own in which i wish to use the emotion recognition. Is there any way through which i use the emotion features of cognitive services in my own way in my android application?

  17. 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.

  18. I would like a sleepiness detection function using Vision API

    I'm looking for the solution to detect if human (e.g., a driver) is sleeping or not, so I would like a sleepiness function using Vision API.

  20. Fatigue status

    Dear Cognitive Services Team,
    I been trying The Emotions API and I noticed that theres no status for fatigue. I'm working on a Safety project, It could help us a lot to get this.
    could be possible to add that status?,
