In this chapter, we have taken a deep dive into a big part of the Vision APIs. We learned how to get good descriptions of images. Next we learned how to recognize celebrities and text in images. We saw how we can generate thumbnails. Following this, we moved on to the Face API, where we got more information about detected faces. We found out how to verify if two faces were the same. After this we learned how to find similar faces and group similar faces. Finally, we added identification to our Smart-House application, allowing it to know who we are.

The following chapter will continue with the final two Vision APIs. We will learn how to detect emotion in images and videos. Moving on from there, we will focus more on videos, discovering what the Video API has to offer.
