This is nothing far from what future Liebherr refrigerators and freezers are working to achieve with Microsoft Computer Vision API.

Google, IBM  and other  computer vision API’s are evolving and are not any different.

Clarifai , one of the leading market players brought a singular focus on image recognition technology, using an advanced technique called deep learning to identify almost any subject in pictures and videos.They have python , java ,javascript and ios client integration. You can train your own model feeding data from images and concepts. Clarifai gives users the power of visual search allowing third parties moderate out offensive content and protects marketplace against counterfeit goods.

Another visual cognition technology provider, CloudSight provides free access to CloudSight API to educational institutions around the world also providing researchers the power to build datasets avoiding manual annotation efforts.CloudSight is distinctive for its fine-grained natural language object captions, which display an unparalleled level of detail.

Google Cloud Vision API enables developers to understand the content of an image by encapsulating powerful machine learning models in an easy to use REST API“. Vision API’s can also analyze emotional facial attributes of people in images like sorrow etc.Optical character Recognition along with Google Cloud Translation API allows easy content translation on Google cloud storage.

Custom image classification VIZE.IT allows custom API creation with user created custom data set. Category definition and sample feed are only the two steps to get started with your custom dataset and easy app integration.” can learn whatever you need to recognize – whether you are analyzing product images, webcam photos or histo­logical sections. All you have to do is to give us a few examples and we do the rest.
