    Question Face Detection & Recognition?

    Hello Nokia,

    Are there any plans to add Face Detection & Recognition to the Nokia Imaging SDK? That could unleash a whole wave of truly intriguing and powerful apps.

    Currently you could use it in conjunction with the Microsoft Face SDK: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/facesdk/

    You could also build a CustomEffect on the Imaging SDK that in turn uses the Face SDK to apply certain effects based on facial detection.

I and others have asked for clarification on this issue in regards to Windows Phone 8 compatibility (not Windows 8), but the people working with the SDK have not responded. Look at these two threads:

    One of the main MS employees involved with the project did answer a technical support question regarding using the FaceSDK on Windows Phone 8, but I don't know if that means definitively that you can use the FaceSDK on that platform.

    Its seems clear to me that due to licensing restrictions you cant use the SDK on WP8 projects. This may be because the project is targeting specifically WP7 and until they officially support WP8 you can use it for that.

    There may be many different reasons with that, some probably not related with the tech or the platform support, but more on the legal side of things.
