AI Image Explicit Content Detection API

Starting from 500 atoms
AI tier


This Utility API uses AI to detect explicit content and sensitive elements within images.
This API can analyse visual data to pinpoint explicit content, making it suitable for applications in various domains, from enhancing content moderation in image searches to ensuring a safer experience in augmented reality. This API, integrated into a social media platform, utilizes advanced AI algorithms to automatically scan user-uploaded images for explicit content. This ensures efficient content moderation, quickly identifying and withholding inappropriate material from public view.
The atoms cost is subjected to change depending on the size of the input file and the provider selected. The list of providers and the atoms cost for each provider is given below:

The output response structure and the result of the AI utility APIs depend on the service provider and it may vary depending on which service provider is selected.

All API requests to ApyHub services need to be authenticated. Currently we support tokens or basic authentication mechanisms. You can generate and view your existing credentials from your workspace settings (on the left side of the navbar) and go to “API Keys".
Points to note:
  • Credential secrets are generated on the fly and are not stored in plain text, so on generating a credential please save the secrets somewhere safe.
  • Use the apy-token as the header parameter to pass the token.
  • Use the Authorization header to send the basic authentication credentials.
