This SDK has been deprecated and been replaced by Microsoft.Azure.CognitiveServices.Vision.Face which is a part of Azure SDK.
This repo contains the Python SDK for the Microsoft Face API, an offering within Microsoft Cognitive Services, formerly known as Project Oxford.
Install the module using pip:
pip install cognitive_face
import cognitive_face as CF KEY = 'subscription key' # Replace with a valid Subscription Key here. CF.Key.set(KEY) BASE_URL = 'https://westus.api.cognitive.microsoft.com/face/v1.0/' # Replace with your regional Base URL CF.BaseUrl.set(BASE_URL) img_url = 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Microsoft/Cognitive-Face-Windows/master/Data/detection1.jpg' result = CF.face.detect(img_url) print result
