Detect objects automatically
Gain intelligence at the edge
Use AutoML Vision Edge to build and deploy fast, high-accuracy models to classify images or detect objects at the edge, and trigger real-time actions based on local data. Learn more.
Reduce purchase friction
With Vision API’s vision product search, retailers can create an engaging mobile experience that enables customers to upload a photo of an item and immediately see a list of similar items for purchase.
Try the API
Automate the training of your own custom machine learning models. Simply upload images and train custom image models with AutoML Vision’s easy-to-use graphical interface; optimize your models for accuracy, latency, and size; and export them to your application in the cloud or to an array of devices at the edge.
Vision API offers powerful pre-trained machine learning models through REST and RPC APIs. Assign labels to images and quickly classify them into millions of predefined categories. Detect objects and faces, read printed and handwritten text, and build valuable metadata into your image catalog.
