"Simple to uise, feels limited."

What do you like best?

The best part about Amazon Rekognition is its ease of use and simplicity to understand. When I was first tasked to look into this product, the company was doing a Hack Day. In the span of a day I managed to build a website that was able to take given images and determine whether the image contained a duck or not. This allowed me to understand how simple it was to use Amazon Rekognition.

What do you dislike?

I felt like the documentation for setting up and using the product was alright. Although was lacking support in PHP for some major components. Other than that, the setup and use was easy. However I would improve the documentation.

Also, I found that some of the products features were limited and could be improved upon over time to include additional features and have a smarter model. Many of the images the API responded with no response rather than something even though it was a valid image with normal content inside.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product to anybody who has a need to search through images to find vary obvious content within them. Sometimes the model misses information but it is good overall.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our company has a lot of images that we need to ensure has no inappropriate content within it. This content could vary between adult material to medical drugs/needles. Amazon Rekognition allows us to scan images for this content and sift through many images almost effortlessly with minimal human interaction.

"Keep your application kid-friendly"

What do you like best?

Easy to use interface for rating images and determining their suitability

What do you dislike?

If you are not careful, the costs can add up very quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Follow the AWS docs. They have samples and tutorials.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

If you have a service that aggregates and presents media from the public, you are always in "danger" of the content being "inappropriate". Of course, Facebook, Google and other large companies have teams of people ensuring that such content is appropriate (in their respective sites). If you are a smaller player, Rekognition comes to your rescue.

As always, Amazon has put alot of thought and effort into building a product that is well thought out and easy to use.

As with all technology, the product is only as good as the people that are behind the scenes programming and developing. Bezos has proven time and time again that Amazon will not fail it's consumers. Time will tell.
