Amazon Rekognition is now available in the AWS GovCloud (US) region.

Amazon Rekognition is a service that makes it easy to add image analysis to your applications. With Rekognition, you can detect objects, scenes, faces; and identify inappropriate content in images. You can also search for similar faces in a large collection of images in near real time. Rekognition’s API enables you to quickly add sophisticated deep learning-based visual search and image classification to your applications. With Amazon Rekognition, you only pay for the images you analyze and the face metadata you store. There are no minimum fees and there are no upfront commitments.

Amazon Rekognition is also currently available in US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Oregon) and EU (Ireland) regions. To get started with Rekognition, simply log in to the Rekognition console to try the service with sample photos or your own photos.
