Last year, Microsoft first revealed the Custom Vision Service. Custom Vision Service which is part of Microsoft Cognitive Services allows developers to easily train, deploy, and improve custom image classifiers. Developers can train their own image classifier in minutes with few images per category. Once the model is trained, they can use it in their apps through REST APIs. Yesterday, Microsoft announced the public preview of Custom Vision Service on the Azure Portal. Interested developers can give it a try.

Microsoft’s Face API provides face and emotion recognition. It detects the location and attributes of human faces and emotions in an image, which can be used to personalize user experiences. Microsoft yesterday announced that the Face API now includes several improvements, including million-scale recognition to better help customers for their vision scenarios.
