Vision API And Its Application In Tertiary Sector
The cloud-based Computer Vision API provides developers with access to advanced algorithms for processing images and returning information.
By uploading an image or specifying an image URL, Microsoft Computer Vision algorithms can analyze visual content in different ways
based on inputs and user choices. With the Computer Vision API, we will present multiple use cases relevant to tertiary sector, which includes
1. Detect student faces and automate attendance process in classrooms
