- [Narrator] It was so innocently that I thought…I could run out and obtain a free facial recognition library…for the C language.…Oh, such things exist but they're definitely not free.…As I learned, this technology is sophisticated…and closely guarded.…Once again, the poor C language is forced…to visit a website and use its powers…to determine the number of faces in an image.…I'd have to again use libcurl to upload and fetch data.…I'm learning to live with it.…The site recommended to me was Microsoft's Azure.…
You sign up for a free API key…and then you can test the program online.…Azure is a good service and from what I can tell,…the technology works.…It offers both face detection and recognition…and upon success, it returns a wealth of data.…The problem is as far as I can tell,…the image must be hosted on the internet.…You can't just upload an image and have it evaluated…so I looked for another tool.…I finally settled upon IBM's Watson.…Watson is also free giving you an online account…and API key with which to experiment.…
