Image recognition, in the context of machine vision, is the ability of software to identify objects, places, people, writing and actions in images. Traditionally, implementing image processing functionality has required coding complex algorithms, gathering large amounts of data, training/tuning models. Using a visual recognition API lets you, with just a few lines of code, implement functionality such as organizing and categorizing images/products, detecting and tracking objects, identifying faces among others.
