Oculus AI

Oculus AI has been in the news quite often recently and the media has been praising its capabilities left and right. So, out of curiosity I decided to give it a try and see what it has to offer and how accurate it is.

If you’re in the online dating business then you’ll know that uploaded images that don’t follow site policy can affect the integrity of your site and eventually eat away at potential revenues. Oculusai's service is called AIR (Automated Image Rejection) according to the developers, significantly speeds up the image moderation process. All head shot images that are uploaded onto a site are filtered through the AIR service and automatically rejected if they are hard to distinguish i.e. blurred, partly covered or multiple faced images or if they contain known celebrities or scammers.

According to the rejection reasons, stated below, I uploaded an image that fell in two of the categories and I have placed red arrows next to them:

The photo is of my son, which was at an angle greater than 30 degree and his face was partially covered.

The AIR software did approve the image and I am wondering how accurate it is if I purchase it for my site.
