Recognition Specification

Specification object

Definition

A recognition specification describes the output format of your recognition algorithm. You may attach multiple algorithms that perform the same task to the same specification in order to leverage automatic updates of your embedded recognition models.
Parameter
Type
Attributes
Description
id
int (string)
read-only
The ID of the recognition specification. This field is a string for public recognition models.
name
string
A short name for your recognition specification.
description
string
A longer description of your recognition specification.
update_date
string
read-only
Date time (ISO 8601 format) of the last update of the recognition specification.
metadata
object
A JSON field containing any kind of information that you may find interesting to store.
current_version_id
int
nullable, hidden for public models
The ID of the current recognition version object that this specification will execute if you ask it to perform an inference. This is convenient if you want to allow your app to point to a constant API endpoint while keeping the possibility to smoothly update the recognition model behind. This field is hidden for public recognition models
outputs
array(object)
hidden
The specification of the outputs you would like to recognize. It's an array of output objects. As this field tends to be large, it is hidden when you access the list of recognition models.
The id field is an integer for private models and a string for public recognition models.

Output object

Parameter
Type
Description
labels
object
An output of type labels.

Labels output

Parameter
Type
Description
labels
array(object)
A list of labels objects that will be recognised by your model.
exclusive
bool
A boolean describing if the declared labels are mutually exclusive or not.
roi
string
ROI stands for "Region Of Interest". Possible values are:
  • NONE: if your model is performing classification only without object localisation
  • BBOX: if your model can also output bounding boxes for the multiple objects detected in the image.

Label Object

Parameter
Type
Description
id
int
The numeric ID of your label. Can be anything you want, this ID will be present in the inference response for you to use it.
name
string
The name of the label. It will also be present in the inference response.
