Now, let's discuss about the Emotion API and how to create an Emotion API Service on Azure Portal.

Emotion API

The Emotion API beta takes an image as an input, and returns a set of emotions for each face in the image, as well as a binding box for the face, from the Face API. The emotions detected are happiness, sadness, surprise, anger, fear, contempt, disgust or neutral. These emotions are communicated cross-culturally and universally via the same basic facial expressions, which are identified by Emotion API.

Step 6

Finally, click "Create" button to create a Cognitive Service.

A few minutes later, we will see that the Emotion API dashboard appears. Then, we can download the Emotion APIs and use them in our project.
