Leverage your solution with Watson Visual Recognition
Visual Recognition uses deep learning algorithms to analyze images that can give you insights into your visual content. You can organize image libraries, understand an individual image, recognize food, detect faces, and create custom classifiers for specific results that are tailored to your needs.
Classify virtually any visual content
Visual Recognition understands the contents of images. Analyze images for scenes, objects, faces, colors, food, text, explicit content, and other subjects that can give you insights into your visual content.
Train your own custom model in minutes
Customize Watson perfectly for your unique use case. With only a few images, Watson can learn any new object, person, or attribute.
Find all faces present in your image and receive age and gender estimates for each one.
OmniEarth uses Watson to combat California drought
Founded in 2014 by a small team of scientists and entrepreneurs, this environmental technology company uses advanced geoanalytics, powered by the IBM Watson Visual Recognition cognitive service, to process, clarify and fuse vast amounts of satellite and aerial imagery with other data sets. By providing granular data on water consumption, the firm could help local agencies quickly identify land parcels that needed to reduce water usage, and by how much.
The Watson Visual Recognition cognitive service analyzed OmniEarth’s extensive collection of aerial images of drought-stricken lots for specific areas where water usage could be scaled back. In one instance, Watson’s cognitive capabilities made it possible for the OmniEarth team to identify swimming pools in 150,000 parcels in just 12 minutes—something that would’ve taken hours or days if done manually.
Armed with this information, water districts were able to make very specific, water- saving recommendations to property owners and governments in drought areas.
