Image Recognition with .NET Core (Workshop)
Welcome to the world where machine image understanding is just a REST call away!
You will build a REST API for two retail scenarios:
Customer walks into a store and is recognized by their face. Shopping assistant immediately gets a notification that particular Mr./Mrs. X is here and there's a special offer just for them.
Customer walks out of the store. Instead of presenting them with physical buttons, we let them rate their experience by performing an internationally understandable gesture: Thumbs UP / Thumbs DOWN.
Even though there's a front-end part present in these exercises, we will focus mostly on backend and build an universally deployable API which can be used from a website or mobile app.
Technically, we'll use ASP.NET Core and Microsoft Cognitive Services, specifically Face API and Custom Vision API.
