Detection Of Specific Person Using API?

by Synthetisoft » Sat Feb 13, 2016 3:56 pm

Is detection of a specific person possible? I see there's information returned in "landmarks" that could define attributes of a person. Could that be stored and used to identify a specific person? If so, what degree of accuracy might be expected? I assume that the landmarks wouldn't always return the same for a person but might always remain within a certain range.

Hi Synthetisoft,

I don't think you'd have much luck using the landmarks alone to do recognition. In better news we announced in December that we have excellent recognition technology to solve this problem for you, and we plan to make this functionality available soon.

Can a person be detected now and if so what is the part of the API CODE that shows success or failure.

Can a url link be loaded after a successful match from a gallery and if so what code would need to be added to load a url after success?

Thanks.
Sim

Documentation for the recognition API and sample code can be found at these locations:

https://www.sighthound.com/docs/cloud/recognition/
https://www.sighthound.com/products/clo ... n/tutorial

You can certainly load a URL link after detecting a match but this would be handled by your application code directly rather than by the recognition API.
