"Image understanding (IU) is the research area concerned with the design and experimentation of computer systems that integrate explicit models of a visual problem domain with one or more methods for extracting features from images and one or more methods for matching features with models using a control structure. Given a goal, or a reason for looking at a particular scene, these systems produce descriptions of both the images and the world scenes that the images represent."

TL;DR: As of May 13, the Robo 360 Rotation Smart AI Object Tracking Gimbal is on sale for 71% off, so you can get it for just $36.99 instead of $129. Propping your phone up against a stack of books in the corner is fine, but there are far better ways to capture your content. The Robo Smart Gimbal, for instance, uses AI to help you capture hands-free content for social media, presentations, and more. The Robo is equipped with 360-degree infinite rotation and a built-in innovative AI, which work together to track a target and capture it in motion. Once it detects your face, it starts taking photos or videos automatically, depending on what kind of content you're looking to create.
Image Classification is one of the most fundamental tasks in computer vision. It has revolutionized and propelled technological advancements in the most prominent fields, including the automobile industry, healthcare, manufacturing, and more. How does Image Classification work, and what are its benefits and limitations? Keep reading, and in the next few minutes, you'll learn the following: Image Classification (often referred to as Image Recognition) is the task of associating one (single-label classification) or more (multi-label classification) labels to a given image. Here's how it looks like in practice when classifying different birds-- images are tagged using V7. Image Classification is a solid task to benchmark modern architectures and methodologies in the domain of computer vision. Now let's briefly discuss two types of Image Classification, depending on the complexity of the classification task at hand. Single-label classification is the most common classification task in supervised Image Classification.
With the growth in technology we have seen an incline towards the technologies related to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in our day-to-day life. In recent few years Microsoft has been pushing Low-Code/ No-Code ideology and have been incorporating ML and AI technologies in their PCF control, AI Builder Models, etc. Evidence of this can be seen in the recent PCF control like Business card Scanner, Document Automation models, etc. In this blog series, we will be seeing the Image classification model by Lobe which is currently in preview. Microsoft Lobe is a free desktop application provided by Microsoft which can be used to classify Images into labels.
The dataset contains 60,000 grayscale images in the training set and 10,000 images in the test set. Each image represents a fashion item that belongs to one of the 10 categories. Our goal is to build a model that correctly predicts the label/class of each image. Hence, we have a multi-class, classification problem. We already have training and test datasets. We keep 5% of the training dataset, which we call validation dataset.
Machine vision is increasingly important for many applications, such as object classification. However, relying on conventional RGB imaging is sometimes insufficient – the input images are just too similar, regardless of algorithmic sophistication. Hyperspectral imaging adds the extra dimension of wavelength to conventional images, providing a much richer data set. Rather than expressing an image using red, green, and blue (RGB) values at each pixel location, hyperspectral cameras instead record a complete spectrum at each point to create a 3D data set, sometimes referred to as a hyperspectral data cube. The additional spectral dimension facilitates supervised learning algorithms that can characterize visually indistinguishable objects – capabilities that are highly desirable across multiple application sectors.
Although Peloton already puts cameras in its exercise bikes and treadmills, the new Peloton Guide, which is finally available after being first announced in November, is the company's first camera-specific device that uses AI-powered motion tracking to monitor your form and routines while you work out from home. There are a few notable changes between the version of the Peloton Guide that was announced late last year and the version that's finally now available--at least in the US, Canada, the UK, and Australia to start. The steep $495 price tag, which actually made the Guide one of the most affordable products Peloton offers, has dropped to just $295. Part of the pricing change no doubt comes from the company's attempts to lure new users while people slowly return to gyms as the world has seemingly stopped caring about the ongoing pandemic. But the original version of the Peloton Guide was also going to include an armband heart monitor which is now an optional $90 add-on. It can also be purchased in a pricier $545 bundle with three sets of dumbbells and a mat for users not already equipped for strength training at home.

Huge amounts of data are needed to train machine-learning models to perform image classification tasks, such as identifying damage in satellite photos following a natural disaster. However, these data are not always easy to come by. Datasets may cost millions of dollars to generate, if usable data exist in the first place, and even the best datasets often contain biases that negatively impact a model's performance. To circumvent some of the problems presented by datasets, MIT researchers developed a method for training a machine learning model that, rather than using a dataset, uses a special type of machine-learning model to generate extremely realistic synthetic data that can train another model for downstream vision tasks. Their results show that a contrastive representation learning model trained using only these synthetic data is able to learn visual representations that rival or even outperform those learned from real data.
In this tutorial, you'll see how to build a satellite image classifier using Python and Tensorflow. Satellite image classification is an important task when it comes down to agriculture, crop/forest monitoring, or even in urban scenarios, with planning tasks. We're going to use the EuroSAT dataset, which consists of Sentinel-2 satellite images covering…
Neural Style Transfer is a technique that applies the Style of 1 image to the content of another image. It's a generative algorithm meaning that the algorithm generates an image as the output. As you're probably wondering, how does it work? In this post, we'll be explaining how the vanilla Neural Style Transfer algorithm adds different styles to an image and what makes the algorithm unique and interesting. Both Style Transfer and traditional GANs share the similarity of being able to generate images as the output.
