The Computer Vision API is one of several APIs available in Microsoft Cognitive Services, and it can recognize objects in photos, caption photos, extract text from images, and more. Backed by machine learning, it enables a wide range of software scenarios, including Web sites that filter out images with adult content and apps that allow photos to be searched using computer-generated keywords.
