Today I put on hole my posts on Project Malmo and Minecraft, because thanks to some new connectors in Microsoft Flow, I was able to create an image analysis Mobile App in a matter of minutes.
When we create a Flow triggered using a button, we have a new data type [File] for input data. If we use a File as the start of a Flow, and a Computer Vision activity, we can create a simple 3-step process for analyzing photos.
As I commented earlier, in the Button we created an input field of the type File.
Then we used the File Content of the previous step in a Computer Vision action to get the image description.
And finally we show the description returned by the Cognitive Services action in a notification to the mobile device.
If we launch our Flow, we will see that at the time of selecting a file we can take a photo using our smart phone or select one from the photo gallery
For this sample, I’ll use a simple one: a couple of toys in my desk
The process begins to work, uploading the photo to a temporary location so the Computer Vision process can analyze it
And a few seconds later we have the result that in this case, is 100% correct!
