Build a talking, face-recognizing doorbell for about $100

@machinelearnbot

Registration for the O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference, September 18-20, 2017, in San Francisco, is now open. Recently, I set out to install a doorbell in my new house and thought: why doesn't my doorbell tell me who is at the door? Most of my DIY projects end up costing more than the equivalent product, even if I value my time at $0 per hour. Something about supply chains and economies of scale, I guess. In the course of this project, I built a door camera that is not only way cheaper than my Dropcam, but it has some genuinely useful features that, for some reason, aren't available on the market yet.

I wrote a facial rekognition app in under two hours *

OK, I'll admit I didn't actually write the facial recognition bit of my app. But, I did find out how painless, quick and incredibly cheap it is to add facial recognition to your repertoire. As soon as I saw the release of Rekognition back in early December 2016, I wanted to play with it but just didn't have the opportunity at the time. A few weeks later, I read the famous post about building Jarvis from Mark Zuckerberg. And, guess what, the facial recognition part stood out to me once again.


Amazon Rekognition Documentation

#artificialintelligence

Amazon Rekognition is a deep learning image analysis service. With the growing proliferation of visual content on the web, Amazon Rekognition enables you to unlock tremendous value from this data. You can use the image analysis information to understand the image content, organize a massive amount of visual data, and build visually aware applications.


AWS AI services toss machine learning keys to dev teams

AWS hopes a sprinkling of artificial intelligence tools and services will whet the appetites of AWS users who aren't AI experts, while also keep pace with aggressive cloud competitors.
