Recognizing Celebrities

Amazon Rekognition can recognize thousands of celebrities in a wide range of categories, such as entertainment and media, sports, business, and politics. With Amazon Rekognition, you can recognize celebrities in images and in stored videos. You can also get additional information for recognized celebrities.

The Amazon Rekognition celebrity recognition API is tuned to detect as many celebrities as possible in different settings, cosmetic makeup, and other conditions. Social, media, and entertainment customers can build apps that use celebrity recognition. For example, an entertainment app that identifies celebrity lookalikes or an app that identifies celebrities as part of automated footage tagging. Amazon Rekognition celebrity recognition is designed to be exclusively used in cases where you expect there may be a known celebrity in an image or a video. For information about recognizing faces that are not celebrities, see Searching Faces in a Collection.
