Microsoft Object Detection detects objects, faces, and landmarks using Azure Computer Vision. The service detects objects within images and returns the Metadata of objects contained in the image in the form of a list of Tags. For example, if a person is present in the image, tags may include facial features, such as nose, ear, lip, etc. The Best Caption that best describes the image and gives the context of the image is also returned.
Consider the example below of a blonde woman; the image has been categorized as a “people_portrait”, and the caption was returned as “a woman with blonde hair”.
Furthermore, Face Detection has supplied the gender and the estimated age of the woman.
It is also specified that the image does not contain any racy or offensive material.
