In the last couple of days, a new set of services were added to Microsoft Flow. In the Microsoft Flow Blog, they shared a complete description of the new services. I’ll focus this post on Computer Vision actions (part of Microsoft Cognitive Services suite). We will be able to perform image analysis, text recognition and more.
So, let’s try this with a very simple flow:
- This Flow will start when a new file (image) is added to a OneDrive folder
- The content of the image will be sent to Computer Vision to analyze the content
- The result of the analysis process will be sent as a mobile notification
The next image displays a running log of this Flow. The image saved on OneDrive display a group of people. The results are very accurate.
The parameters to be used are very straight forward and we can easily match a OneDrive file with a Computer Vision action using the Analyze Image action definition.
In the Computer Vision actions we can use the following ones:
These actions are the same ones we can find in the API definition for Computer Vision (link). The extra one is related to “Recognize Domain Specific Content”. Which is a very interesting one.
