Posted by Chris Moffitt in articles   

This article describes how to to use Microsoft Azure’s Cognitive Services Face API and python to identify, count and classify people in a picture. In addition, it will show how to use the service to compare two face images and tell if they are the same person. We will try it out with several celebrity look-alikes to see if the algorithm can tell the difference between two similar Hollywood actors. By the end of the article, you should be able to use these examples to further explore Azure’s Cognitive Services with python and incorporate them in your own projects.
