Last week we wrote an algorithm spotlight about a video processing algorithm called Video Metadata Extraction. This week, we are pairing it up with a really cool microservice from an Algorithmia user called Car Make and Model Recognition that detects a car’s make and model from an image. This algorithm is currently in beta, but we’ve tested it out on a bunch of images and it works really well. We thought that it might be fun to take a traffic video and find the unique brands of cars that pass by a bus stop.
Before we released the Video Metadata Extraction algorithm you would have had to use the Split Video By Frames algorithm and then pass each image frame’s path to the Car Make and Model algorithm.
Now, using the Video Metadata Extraction algorithm you can do the same thing in just a few lines of code. Read More…
This week we check out who Microsoft tapped to change the way humans interact with machines, learn why every data science team needs a centralized platform for their work, what we’re reading, and some things to try at home.
This week we let Amazon “Look” at us using computer vision, check out why you want to deploy your machine learning model as a scalable, serverless microservice, and look at why machine intelligence is the key to building sustainable businesses. Plus what we’re reading this week and things to try at home.
This week we check out Facebook’s pursuit to create computers with intelligence on par with humans, how Google’s opening access to its speech recognition software, Amazon’s Lex is now available to any developer building conversational bots, and more. Plus our favorite reads and some projects to try at home. Read More…
