    Hello!

    I made a frontal face detection web service. Free to use, no limitations for the open source world and programmers all around.

    I am writing here because I would like to know about the feasibility of the idea. I also know community feedback is the best way to progress!

    So here goes nothing: face detection api

    I think any kind of feedback is useful!

    If it's free, why do I have to sign up?

    because you need an API Key and Secret, just like every programming API

    All the APIs I used required a API Key and Secret (for instance Google Maps or Twitter). Or something similar. And for that you needed to signup.

    The signup also provides protection for the user in case someone is listening to the connection. For example: Instead of adding your email to every request to the webservice you add an APIKEY. That way your email is not exposed.
