Google Cloud Vision API

(12)
4.0 out of 5 stars

Google Cloud Vision API is a tool that enables developers to understand the content of an image by encapsulating powerful machine learning models in an easy to use REST API, it quickly classifies images into thousands of categories (e.g., "sailboat", "lion", "Eiffel Tower"), detects individual objects and faces within images, and finds and reads printed words contained within images user can build metadata on image catalog, moderate offensive content, or enable new marketing scenarios through image sentiment analysis.

"Another great Computer Vision API from google"

What do you like best?

Google Cloud vision api is developed for training and testing computer vision models and also reusing the pretrained models developed by the computer vision team.It is very simple to use,you just have to create your account on google and get yourself api key and enable cloud vision api,Thats it you are ready to go.It is so much simple but accurate enough to give you precise results.Moreover if you are a newbie you get 300$ credits on google cloud which you can use for cloud vision API.I'll give you one example about its simplicity.Suppose you want a ocr for your software and you don't have time to code it from scratch at that time you use pretrained OCR model of google vision to detect characters from the image.It give you accuracy of 80% which is more than good for a pretrained model.

What do you dislike?

The pricing is little high and if you are using it for personal use than definetly its gonna be heavy on you pocket.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definetly recommended to use google cloud vision api for character recognition,label detection,object detection and other functionalities of computer vision which are pretrained in google vision api and the models are very much accurate and they give the accuracy more than any other model or api gives,though it is little costly but if you are using it for commercial use than it is definitely recommended because I have used it and I seriously loved the API.

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

I have used computer vision library of google cloud for developing label detection and afterwards OCR detection using the pretrained model of google cloud vision api and then integrated this functionality into the software our team was developing for our client.For security reasons i cannot reveal more details but seriously Google cloud vision api had made our work sorted and had reduced much of our time and workload.

"I love their new updates to OCR, never saw better text extraction api."

What do you like best?

Love their image labeling and the text extraction feature which have been improved dramatically in the last year since google i/o 17. The image labeling has become so accurate that it can detect landmarks and companies logos.

Also i can integrate google's vission api in mobile apps which is very useful actually.

What do you dislike?

What i dislike is that when the api detects the main object in the picture, it ignores other small things or at least relativley small to that dominant object.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For those who are always dealing with images, you should definitely try google's powerful cloud vision api as the machine learning is advancing so fast and you should get advantage of it.

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

As a backend developer, i work with data and databases all the time, so filling these data manually is a pain. By using google's vision api i extract all the data for example from catalog that contains images of products and process them in cloud then fill my database's tables. Thanks to the great OCR and text extraction feature.

What Image Recognition solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Optical Character Recognition"

What do you like best?

I used the Optical Character Recognition service that the API provides and what I like the most is:

1) It is very simple to use, well-tested.

2) it supports a lot of languages.

3) It returns bounding boxes that surround words, paragraphs or even the entire text and the text as a string within the box with a level of confidence for each word.

What do you dislike?

1) There is no much documentation, some example is provided but I believe it is not enough.

2) It doesn't work very well on some language.

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

"Among the best OCR software in market"

What do you like best?

- Accuracy is at level of world’s best for the English language

- Handles skew of paper remarkably well

- Ease of use

- The pricing seems pretty reasonable as compared to other products

- That it's cloud based so no noeed to install anything

What do you dislike?

- Doesn't deal with diacritics in Latin-based languages

- The name of the product! It's obscure and nerdy

- The output (at least for the trial version) doesn't provide line breaks so it's hard to read

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it! For Latin-based languages, if you're not worried about diacritics, then this should work very well. And it's not as expensive as a lot of products.

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

OCR of paper documents

Prospective benefits will be cost savings and productivity improvements

"I have integerated Google cloud vision api in my android apps and was amazed by the results."

What do you like best?

Image labeling and Face recognition is what i find interesting in cloud vision api.

What do you dislike?

You are limited to specific programming languages not like other competitors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is three big competitors out there when it comes to vision apis, but by using google's cloud vision api you have to opportunity to integrate it with all of google's other services which most of you use at least one of them daily.

You won't regret working with it.

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

With google's strong knowledge in machine learning and artificial intelligence field, implementing vision api in my android applications have become so easy and also it met my needs.

i love being able to find the right images i need for series quickly and without exhaustively searching for them.

"Enjoy the ease!"

What do you like best?

I love how you can scan an object, and it can figure out what the object is, or what it correlates to.

How easily it can link whatever object you scan to something completely different dependent upon what else is in the image.

It provides ease of access to locating where on the warehouse floor something may be.
