Amazon Rekognition was announced at the AWS re:Invent conference in 2016 along with other members of the AI family, including Lex, Polly and ML. Since it’s launch, AWS has continued to add features and functionality to Amazon Recognition in response to customer demand, including age estimation, explicit content detection, and celebrity recognition.
