Computer Vision Services for AI

Enable your applications to analyze images and video at scale

Computer vision services on AWS range from API-driven services that require no machine learning experience, to customizable deep learning frameworks for machine learning practitioners. Computer vision enables companies to extract rich metadata that can be used in meaningful ways, such as powering intelligent search engines and automating content management.



Real-Time Analysis

Analyze video or images as soon as they are uploaded. For example, analyze archived video to extract rich metadata to create a searchable video library.


Simple Integration

Integrate API-driven computer vision services into any application or use pre-trained models. For example, integrate a facial recognition API into an existing application to easily add visual analysis features.


Low Cost

Only pay for the number of images or minutes of video you analyze and the metadata you store. No minimum fees or upfront commitments.

Use Cases

Enable Intelligent Search

The metadata extracted by computer vision can power recommendation engines to return contextually relevant media or enable search engines to provide more accurate results by extracting text from images such as street names, captions, and license plates.

Content Management & Analysis

With millions of images added every day to media and social channels, using computer vision technologies such as automatic metadata extraction and image classification enables media workflows, like manual cataloging, to be done more efficiently. A searchable media library generated from the automatic metadata extraction allows you to easily search through massive amounts of content for specific individuals, activities, and more.

Personalized Content & Services

Enhanced computer-human interaction improves customer satisfaction such as offering products based on customer sentiment analysis through facial expressions in retail outlets or using image recognition to match customers with art they will love based on previous purchases and views.

Gain Customer Insights

Discover customer insights using computer vision in retail outlets, for instance, identify customer hotspots by analyzing how customers move around in a store. These insights can be used to drive better business decisions, such as ad placement.
