Face Application Programming Interface & Creating Cognitive Portrait
Date: May 20, 2021
Time: 04:00 PM - 05:00 PM (Central European)
Topic: Coding, Languages, and Frameworks
What is this session about? We hear a lot about the cloud being used in business scenarios, but how about using cloud and AI to help us create art? In this session, I will teach you how to create original cognitive portraits of people by using Cognitive Services (Face API), Python, and some Mathematical Magic (called Affine Transformations). I will share the code, and you will be able to create portraits of yourself and your friends after the session. Hint: those portraits are a great present if printed on canvas or wall calendars!
Who is it aimed at? Everybody who wants to play with Azure services for Facial Analysis in a funny and enjoyable way! Make sure to have a bunch of portrait photographs ready to experiment with!
Why should I attend? You would be able to become a digital artist in one hour!
