- We have a big enhancement being released today. We have rewritten our entire facial recognition backend in Go!
- What does this mean for you? Not much other than expect to see much more consistent results, and vastly improved response times across all API calls!
- We also added two new parameters, "show_uploaded_image" which when set to "true" will include a 1 hour temporary URL where you can retrieve the image that was just sent in for the /enroll call.
- The other parameter that was added is called "show_candidate_images" which when set to "true" will send you a temporary URL for each candidate that appears in a /recognize call. This was a hotly requested feature that we are glad to be able to deliver for you.
- Note: We did correct an issue with the /enroll call where the "face_id" parameter was returning an integer and not the correct face_id corresponding to what appears in the /recognize call. This has been corrected and a string is now returned.
- Based on your feedback, we have added the uploaded_image_url to the /verify, /enroll, and /recognize methods!
- Note that this URL is only good for one hour after it has been created.
- Look for more new features in this area coming very soon!
- We have added the eyeDistance metric to the /verify, /enroll, and /recognize methods!
- New major enhancement to the accuracy of the facial recognition engine
- You should notice a big speed increase for repeated /recognize requests to the same gallery
- You asked for it, we listened. You can now remove a single face from a subject_id without removing the entire subject!
- Check out the new View subject method to see the face IDs enrolled for a particular subject
- You can now pass in a face_id to the Remove subject method to remove just one face from a subject
- The face_id is now passed back to you when you issues an Enroll request
