FaceX offers online APIs which can be added to most applications using simple HTTP Post Requests to analyse an image or a captured video frame for face detection and recognition.
The APIs are offered in two types of plans: FaceAPI and Face Search
A) FaceAPI plan
The FaceAPI plan offers four APIs :
- Face Detect API– analysis each image and provides the bounding box of every detected face, age-gender analysis, landmark points
- Face Vector API– converts the first detected face to a 128-vector matrix that can be stored to be used for facial recognition. Used for Face Search when using images stored on your server.
- Face Match API– compares the first detected faces in provided two images to determine if they are a match or not. Used for Face Authentication of a database when images are stored on your server.
- Face Compare API– compares the first detected faces in provided two images to determine if they are a match or not. Compare result is converted to approximate match confidence.
B) Face Search plan
The Face Search plan is used for face recognition of a database. Face Search allows you to register, modify and search through an online database on the FaceX portal. Read more on how to begin with Face Search
