Have you ever been to a bar and you didn’t know what kind of alcohol was in your drink? Did you feel worried that maybe is not the one you wanted to order? If so, maybe it is because the person who served it to you was not aware that you were ordering a specific drink.
You may be wondering how this situation can happen and how can you prevent it from occurring again. Well, the short answer is that it happens because a lot of people cannot tell what type of alcoholic beverage is in their glass. This can lead to a lot of misunderstandings and trouble as there are many people who will want to drink something else then what they asked for.
But don’t worry, this article will tell you how to solve these problems and never come across them again.
First of all, what are we talking about when we say alcohol detection? It is merely being able to see and recognize all the kinds of alcohol that may be present in an image. There are many ways this can happen and many benefits to doing so. For example, if you are a bar owner, you can use it to make sure your employees are serving the right drink to your customers every time. Also, if someone has trouble drinking responsibly, you can use it to identify what kind of drinks they tend to choose and keep an eye on them.
But, how do you do this? Easy, all you need is an Image Moderation API!
In case you don’t know what an API is, I will quickly tell you. An API (Application Programming Interface) is a software component that allows two software programs to communicate with each other. This communication is performed by coding out which functions or actions are available or missing from one program so that another may use them. In this case, we are talking about an Image Moderation API.
This type of API works by detecting the objects that are part of an image and labeling them with labels or tags that describe them semantically. In this case, we will be looking for alcoholic beverages and their brand names so we can give our users peace of mind when consuming drinks in our bars and clubs by just uploading the image and letting the API do the rest!
With all of this being said, I think it is clear that there are many benefits to using an Image Moderation API and no reason not to try one out if you haven’
Be able to recognize any alcoholic beverages present in an image you pass to this API.
To make use of it, you must first:
1- Go to Alcohol Detection – Image Moderation API and simply click on the button “Subscribe for free” to start using the API.
2- After signing up in Zyla API Hub, you’ll be given your personal API key. Using this one-of-a-kind combination of numbers and letters, you’ll be able to use, connect, and manage APIs!
3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
4- Once you meet your needed endpoint, make the API call by pressing the button “run” and see the results on your screen.
