FAQ

Custom Vision Service

  • For upload operations, a transaction is counted for every image uploaded.

    For training operations, a transaction is counted for every 10 images trained. Each operation is rounded up to the nearest increment of 10 images. For example, a training operation which includes 1,49,995 images will count as 15,000 transactions.

    For prediction operations, a transaction is counted for every API call.

  • Each day the maximum number of images stored in the project is logged. The average of this number over the month is the number of images per month. Storage will round up to the next instance of 1,000. So if there is an average of 1,897 images in workspace that will be counted as 2,000 images.

General

  • The Emotion API, Face API, Language Understanding Intelligent Service API, Bing Speech-to-Text API and Bing Text-to-Speech API are billed per 1,000 API transaction calls when a production API call is being actively executed. Billing is prorated for production API transaction call quantities.

    The Bing Long Form Speech API service is billed per hour of speech that is analysed. The billing is prorated on a per-minute basis.

    The Recommendations API and Text Analytics API can be purchased in units of the standard tiers at a fixed price. Each unit of a tier comes with included quantities of API transactions. If the user exceeds the included quantities, overages are charged at the rate specified in the pricing table above. These overages are prorated and the service is billed on a monthly basis. The included quantities in a tier are reset each month.

  • Usage is throttled if the transaction limit is reached on the free tier. Customers can't accrue overages on the free tier.

  • Any annotation to a document counts as a transaction. Batch scoring calls will also take into consideration the number of documents that need to be scored in that transaction. So for instance, if 1,000 documents are sent for sentiment analysis in a single API call, that will count for 1,000 transactions. If an API supports more than one annotation operation, that will also be considered. Let’s say an API call performs both sentiment analysis and key-phrase extraction on 1,000 documents, which will count for 2,000 transactions (2 annotations × 1,000 documents).

  • If the usage on a standard tier is exceeded, the account starts to accrue overages. These overages are billed on a monthly basis and are calculated at the rate specified for each tier.

  • Any API call (with the exception of batch scoring calls) counts as a transaction. Batch scoring calls will count based on the number of items that need to be scored in that transaction.

  • Usage is throttled if the transaction limit is reached on the free tier. Customers cannot accrue overages on the free tier. Batch scoring is not supported on the free tier.

  • The Recommendations API can be purchased in units of the standard tiers at a fixed price. Each unit of a tier comes with included quantities of API transactions. If the user exceeds the included quantities, overages are charged at the rate specified in the pricing table above. These overages are prorated and the service is billed on a monthly basis. The included quantities in a tier are reset each month.

  • You may upgrade to a higher tier at any time. The billing rate and included quantities corresponding to the higher tier will begin immediately.
