In this section, we learn how to analyze image and video. Machine learning can perform pattern recognition for a picture or a video. The result of machine learning analysis can be object detection or image analysis.

For instance, I have a still image; this image is analyzed using machine learning. It shows some identified objects, such as human, brick, clothing, and coat. You can see it in the following image. This process is done using Amazon Rekognition

In this section, we focus on how to use Amazon Rekognition to analyze image and video. Setting and configuring will be performed in the next section.
