Custom Vision

An AI service and end-to-end platform for applying computer vision to your specific scenario

Create a custom computer vision model in minutes

Customize and embed state-of-the-art computer vision for specific domains. Build frictionless customer experiences, optimize manufacturing processes, accelerate digital marketing campaigns—and more. No machine learning expertise is required.

Customization to your scenario

Set your model to perceive a particular object for your use case.

Intuitive model creation

Easily build your model using the simple interface.

Flexible deployment

Run Custom Vision in the cloud or on the edge in containers.

Built-in security

Rely on enterprise-grade security and privacy for both your data and any trained models.

Achieve accuracy without the complexity

Start training your computer vision model by simply uploading and labeling a few images. The model tests itself on these and continually improves precision through a feedback loop as you add new images. To speed development, use customizable, built-in models for retail, manufacturing, and food. See how Minsur, one of the world’s largest tin mines, uses Custom Vision for sustainable mining.

Frequently asked questions

  • Azure Cognitive Services, including Custom Vision, guarantee 99.9-percent availability. Learn more about the SLA.
  • Because Custom Vision is designed to be customized for your scenario, you need to provide the data to train your model.
  • The Custom Vision service is optimized to quickly recognize major differences between images, so you can start prototyping your model with a small amount of data. We recommend starting with 50 images per label. Depending on the complexity of the problem and degree of accuracy required, hundreds or thousands of samples may be required for your final model.
  • It’s actually both. Use the site to access a graphical interface for labeling data and training models. Or use the Custom Vision SDKs to do these things.
