My thanks to each and all who contributed to a previous thread which I started on the topic of face recognition.

Today I encountered this page...

https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/details/cognitive-services/face-api/

It is a truly attractive deal, if I understand it; which I quite probably don't.

Short version: For small operators, Microsoft says they won't charge anything for their Face API.

If I'm reading their page properly, it appears that you get...
  • 30,000 (thirty thousand) "transactions" per month
  • A detection speed of twenty faces per minute
I'm still learning what a "transaction" is and I'm trying to figure out how their API would work with the other parts of the (currently non-existent) system in mind.

Truly, this looks like it could get us started on a really good system.

Then again, it also looks like great bait on a very sharp hook.

=== QUESTIONS FOR THE SMART BRIGADE ===
  • Has any reader here taken Microsoft up on this offer ?
  • What questions am I failing to ask ?
  • Who else can provide such an API ?
  • Do I really want someone else's API ?
  • What do you know that I don't ?
  • How hard is the API to incorporate ?
  • e.g., How many lines of code did you have to write ? (e.g., to interface between the camera, the database, whatever)
  • What do I need to know before I start talking to Microsoft ?
  • What haven't I considered at this point ?
I'm the novice here, feel free to display superior knowledge. (Please, educate me)
