How to Use Amazon Rekognition on Cloudinary to Auto-Tag Faces with Names

Learn how to seamlessly integrate Amazon Rekognition with the Cloudinary platform, and build an application that automatically tags people in images with names. This solution learns people’s faces from photos uploaded to a “training” folder in Cloudinary.
