Smile and glasses: the new attributes

Today we introduce the welcome addition to detected attributes family in Face Detection and Recognition API: smiling and glasses. These attributes enable new scenarios for automatic photo processing such us: selecting photos with smiling faces, filtering out photos with sunglasses during upload, offering glasses only to a customer already wearing ones, and many more.
When you ask for glasses attribute we actually return two: glasses and dark_glasses. The second one additionally allows to differentiate between clear and dark glasses.
Check out the demo and see the attributes detection in action! The algorithms behind them are quite new and your feedback on these attributes would be very welcome.
If you are using our NuGet package, please update it to the latest version.
If you think that other facial attributes could add value to your applications, let us know.
