Beyond classification: announcing our image detection APIs

#artificialintelligence

However, most real-world problems can't be addressed by image classification only. For these use-cases, the weapon of choice is called image detection. Recently, this field has seen multiple dramatic improvements. Computers now have the ability not only to tag images but also to detect and localize items in those images. The latter now has the speed to allow real-time detection while slightly improving the accuracy of the former.


Implement Face Detection in Less Than 3 Minutes Using Python

#artificialintelligence

Face detection is one of the most common applications of Artificial Intelligence. From camera applications in smartphones to Facebook's tag suggestions, the use of face detection in applications is increasing every single day. Face detection is the ability of a computer program to identify and locate human faces in a digital image. With the increasing demand for face detection feature in applications, everyone is looking to use face detection in their application so that they are not left behind in the race. In this post, I will teach you how to build a face detection program for yourself in less than 3 minutes.


AI for security: Microsoft Security Risk Detection makes debut - Next at Microsoft

#artificialintelligence

Microsoft is making a cloud service that uses artificial intelligence to track down bugs in software generally available, and it will begin offering a preview version of the tool for Linux users as well. Microsoft Security Risk Detection, previously known as Project Springfield, is a cloud-based tool that developers can use to look for bugs and other security vulnerabilities in the software they are preparing to release or use. The tool is designed to catch the vulnerabilities before the software goes out the door, saving companies the heartache of having to patch a bug, deal with crashes or respond to an attack after it has been released. David Molnar, the Microsoft researcher who leads the group delivering the risk detection tool, said companies have traditionally hired security experts to do this kind of work, which is called fuzz testing, if they did it at all. As the sheer volume of software that companies create and use has increased, it's gotten harder to keep up with the dizzying pace of testing so much software – but more important than ever to keep systems safe from attackers.


Multiplexed and portable nucleic acid detection platform with Cas13, Cas12a, and Csm6

Science

CRISPR techniques are allowing the development of technologies for nucleic acid detection (see the Perspective by Chertow). Taking advantages of the distinctive enzymatic properties of CRISPR enzymes, Gootenberg et al. developed an improved nucleic acid detection technology for multiplexed quantitative and highly sensitive detection, combined with lateral flow for visual readout. Myhrvold et al. added a sample preparation protocol to create a field-deployable viral diagnostic platform for rapid detection of specific strains of pathogens in clinical samples. Cas12a (also known as Cpf1), a type V CRISPR protein, cleaves double-stranded DNA and has been adapted for genome editing. Chen et al. discovered that Cas12a also processes single-stranded DNA threading activity.


Edge Detection using Python - Diverse Technology System

#artificialintelligence

Machine learning is the vast subject these days where every day new experiments and research is doing. Python is the most promising and advanced programming language which is very suitable for engineering and scientific applications that's why I am using python programming for an edge detection technology with an Anaconda Package. Here we are using multiple libraries like numpy, scipy and matplotlib etc. Anaconda package comes with all types of needed libraries so you don't need to install the separate library for every functionality. An edge may be defined as a set of connected pixels that forms a boundary between two disarrange regions. Edge detection is a method of segmenting an image into regions of conclusion.
