Of the deep learning libraries such as Amazon Rekognition and Microsoft Azure Media Analytics, I find IBM's IVA to work best. I enjoy their UI and more importantly it is great for security. IBM offers great support as well.
What do you dislike?
There are some installation problems. When running on local storage, it is fairly slow and the performance is not so great on virtual machines. This problem of performance on virtual machines on local storage is an issue that IBM is aware of though and are working to fix.
