Quickstart - Compare Faces

Overview

The purpose of this guide is to help you create a working sample of the Compare Faces activity. This working sample enables you to quickly verify the connection to your AWS account and get familiar with the activity's input/output datatypes.

By completing the steps in this guide, you'll have an automation sequence that does the following:

  1. Establishes a connection to your AWS account and Amazon Rekognition service via the Amazon Scope activity.
  2. Compares the the most prominent face in your source image to the faces detected in your target image, returning an array of face matches via the Compare Faces activity.
  3. Tests the Compare Faces input/output properties via the If, For Each and Write Line activities.


Prerequisites

Before you begin, complete the applicable prerequisites below.

If you've completed the prerequisites for a different Amazon Rekognition Quickstart guide, you'r all set and can go straight to the Steps section below.

  1. Complete the Amazon Rekognition Setup steps.
  2. Create a new automation project.
    1. Open UiPath Studio.
    2. Under New Project, click Process (this opens a New Blank Process window).
    3. Enter a project Name, Location, and Description.
    4. Click Create.


  3. Install the UiPath.Amazon.Scope.Activities and UiPath.Amazon.Rekognition.Activities packages.
    1. In the Design ribbon, click Manage Packages (this opens the Manage Packages window).
    2. Under All Packages, click Go!
    3. In the Search bar, enter Amazon.
    4. Click, install and accept the license for both the UiPath.Amazon.Scope.Activities and UiPath.Amazon.Rekognition.Activities.
      • For more information about Uipath Studio packages, see Managing Packages in the Studio Guide.


Steps

Build Your Project
  1. Add the Amazon Scope activity to your project.
  2. Add the Compare Faces activity after the Amazon Scope activity.
  3. Enter the SourceImagePath or SourceImageURL of the image that includes the face you want compared to the target input image.
    • Recommendation: create a String variable for your image location so that you can reuse it in other activities (e.g., Identify Faces, Add Faces).
  4. Enter the TargetImagePath or TargetImageURL of the image that includes the face you want compared to the source input image.
    • Recommendation: create a String variable for your image location so that you can reuse it in other activities (e.g., Identify Faces, Add Faces).
  5. (Optional) Enter a Confidence value (for testing purposes, set this value low so that you can easily compare images with different faces while still seeing the output data).
  6. Create and enter a FaceMatch[] variable for your MatchingFaces value (e.g., matchingFaces).
    • When creating your variable, select the UiPath.Amazon.Rekognition.Models.Face[] variable type.


Test Your Project
  1. To test the Compare Face activity, add an If activity that includes a a For Each with a Write Line activity in both the Then and Else statement box.
  2. In the Condition property, enter a value that measures the Confidence level of your MatchingFaces FaceMatch[] variable by writing the following: matchingFaces.Length>=.98 (e.g., if the confidence level of the matching faces is equal to or greater than 98%).
  3. In the Then statement box, add a For Each activity with a Write Line activity.
    1. In the TypeArgument property, select UiPath.Amazon.Rekognition.Models.FaceMatch.
    2. In the Values property, enter the Face[] variable you created in step 4 above (e.g., matchingFaces)..
    3. In the Text property, enter "The faces match! | " + item.Confidence.ToString.
  4. Copy the the For Each activity from the Then statement box and paste it into the Else statement box. In the Else statement box, add a For Each activity with a Write Line activity.
    1. Edit the Text property value to "The faces don't match | " + item.Confidence.ToString.
  5. Click Run and verify the Output window includes the face detail values you entered in the Write Line activity.


You're done!
