Learn how to do Image Recognition with Cognitive Services and ASP.NETLearn how to do Image Recognition with Cognitive Services and ASP.NET
With all the talk about artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) doing crazy things, it’s easy to be left wondering, “what are practical ways I can use this today?” It turns out there are some extremely easy ways to try this today.
In this post, I’ll walk through how to detect faces, gender, ages, and hair color in photos, by adding only a few lines of code to an ASP.NET app. Images will be uploaded and shown in an image gallery built with ASP.NET, images will be hosted in Azure Storage, and Azure Cognitive Services will be used to analyze the images. The full application is available on GitHub. To begin, clone the repository on your machine.
