Do you want to learn how to integrate Cognitive Services Computer Vision API into your apps? In this post, I’ll show you how to use Power Apps and Microsoft Cognitive Services Computer Vision to automatically create captions on your images you upload.
We recently worked on an interesting job where a detective wanted to add captions to pictures he takes at a crime scene without having to go back through each picture and document what each picture was looking at. We can use the Azure service Microsoft Computer Vision to accomplish this and add captions and inscriptions on pictures automatically.
Computer Vision can do many cool things - document a picture with captions; it can do Optical Character Recognition (OCR) or identify celebrities and even employees to name a few. In this case, I’ll add a picture control so when I open this app, it will go through and describe what is in the picture.
You can see a little more detail and just how it works in my video demo below, but this is a pretty simple application using Computer Vision to quickly get tags and captions from pictures that are uploaded to the app. Very cool stuff. There’s a lot you can do with Microsoft Cognitive Services so be sure to go to the Microsoft website to learn more or contact us.
