Rumors aboard Mashape's spaceship

    Kairos, a SaaS-based startup in Miami, FL, has now made its advanced 2D to 3D facial detection and recognition API available on Mashape. The Kairos API takes the complexity out of face recognition so you can focus on building great products. Kairos brings you commercial grade face recognition without hassle; no talking to a shark salesperson in a $1,000 suit, or length contracts! Do check out the guest post below by them, and don’t forget to consume their API on Mashape!

What is face recognition?

At Kairos, we get a lot of questions from people about how facial…
There are numerous use cases for manipulating 3D images; however, finding a quality application has always been a challenge, until now.  Mashape is proud to partner with Vizago, a leading face recognition technology company.  Using a single 2D facial photo, Vizago creates full 3D facial reconstructions in OBJ format. Vizago’s patented Morphable Model Technology enables you to model and manipulate faces in real 3D, as well as create realistic 3D reconstructions of faces from a single user photo.  With the Vizago API you can create 3D representations when developing computer game characters, avatars, and medical simulations.  Vizago is also…
Got images to analyze, modify, sell, or recognize? Or do you need generate images?   These Image APIs might help: Wallpapers – Download high-resolution wallpapers for any common screen size from InterfaceLIFT.com Imgur – Imgur’s API exposes the entire Imgur infrastructure via a standardized programmatic interface. Using Imgur’s API, you can do just about anything you can do on imgur.com, while using your programming language of choice Face Recognition – Stephen here from Lambda Labs. For sample code and a graphical demo, check out http://api.lambdal.com/docs. Our API provides face recognition, facial detection, eye position, nose position, mouth position, and gender classification…
There has been a lot of buzz around Face Recognition since Google Glass was announced.  We believe that face recognition will open up a ton of possibilities in how we interact not just with each other, but with objects as well – whether it’s with Glass or not. To help you in your journey of exploring face recognition, we have below a long list of face detection and recognition APIs that you can use for your applications.  Enjoy! Face Recognition – Stephen here from Lambda Labs. For sample code and a graphical demo, check out http://api.lambdal.com/docs. Our API provides…
Wikipedia defines Machine Learning as “a branch of artificial intelligence that deals with the construction and study of systems that can learn from data.” (If you arrived here looking for how to add or list an API to Mashape, you check out the Tutorials section here). Below is a compilation of APIs that have benefited from Machine Learning in one way or another, we truly are living in the future so strap into your rocketship and prepare for blastoff. OCR recognition service – Ocrapiservice.com is an cloud based optical recognition engine. We take images as input and we reply…
Here are some Mashape APIs based on Machine Learning to prepare you for our April Hackathon tomorrow (April 6th). Example: Face Recognition using Javascript Example: Yactraq Video Topic Extraction and Transcription using Javascript Nodejs wrapper for Yactraq Creating social “signals” with Ping.It Example: Face Recognition login page
This is a tutorial on how you can use the Face Recognition API in a web application using Javascript.  The Face Recognition API makes it ridiculously easy to add face recognition capabilities to your app, whether it’s web, mobile, etc.  We will use photobooth.js to take pictures from our webcam. (Make sure you have one in your machine or plugged in) There are 2 main things to remember when using the Face Recognition API.  You need to: “Train” the Face Recognition API, which means uploading a bunch of pictures that will constitute the “database” from which pictures will be recognized.…
