Chapter 3. Analyzing Videos

In the previous chapter, we looked into different APIs for processing images. In this chapter, we will cover two new APIs: the Emotion API and the Video API. Working our way through this chapter, we will add emotion recognition to our smart-house application. We will also learn how to detect emotions in videos. Additionally, we will learn how to use the different operations of the Video API.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Recognizing emotions in images

  • Retrieving an aggregated summary of emotion from videos

  • Stabilizing and smoothing shaky videos

  • Detecting and tracking faces in videos

  • Detecting motion in videos with a stationary background

  • Automatically generating video thumbnail summaries
