Microsoft Cognitive Services – GA for Face API, Computer Vision API and Content Moderator API

Community Manager

Microsoft Cognitive Services enables developers to create the next generation of applications that can see, hear, speak, understand, and interpret needs using natural methods of communication. We have made adding intelligent features to your platforms easier.


We're excited to announce the general availability of Face API, Computer Vision API and Content Moderator API from Microsoft Cognitive Services.


  • Face API detects human faces and compares similar ones, organizes people into groups according to visual similarity, and identifies previously tagged people and their emotions in images.
  • Computer Vision API gives you the tools to understand the contents of any image. It creates tags that identify objects, beings like celebrities, or actions in an image, and crafts coherent sentences to describe it. You can now detect landmarks and handwriting in images. Handwriting detection remains in preview.
  • Content Moderator provides machine assisted moderation of text and images, augmented with human review tools. Video moderation is available in preview as part of Azure Media Services.
