Face detection with Darknet Yolo

#artificialintelligence

You only look once (YOLO) is a state-of-the-art, real-time object detection system. It comes with a few pre-trained classifiers but I decided to train with my own data to know how well it's made, the potential of Image Recognition in general and its application in real-life situations. If you are a...


Real-time object detection on the Raspberry Pi with the Movidius NCS - PyImageSearch

#artificialintelligence

Today's post is inspired by Danielle, a PyImageSearch reader who emailed me last week and asked: I'm enjoying your blog and I especially liked last week's post about image classification with the Intel Movidius NCS. My project involves object detection with the Raspberry Pi where I'm using my own ...


Evolution of Object Detection and Localization Algorithms

#artificialintelligence

Understanding recent evolution of object detection and localization with intuitive explanation of underlying concepts. Object detection is one of the areas of computed vision that is maturing very rapidly. Thanks to deep learning! Every year, new algorithms/ models keep on outperforming the previou...


Online Dermatology - Can AI Diagnose Melanoma Better than a Doctor?

#artificialintelligence

What if a machine could "see" what doctors can't? Soon, there may be a an artificial intelligence tool for diagnosing melanoma that can do just that. Researchers at the University of California and Stanford University are developing a scanner and an app for your smart phone that may provide earlier ...


Anomaly Detection in R

@machinelearnbot

Inspired by this Netflix post, I decided to write a post based on this topic using R. There are several nice packages to achieve this goal, the one we re going to review is AnomalyDetection. The definition for abnormal, or outlier, is an element which does not follow the behaviour of the majority....


Artificial Intelligence has a dirty little secret - Signature Addiction

#artificialintelligence

Venture Capitalists' (VCs) goal in life these days is to find 'cyber security unicorns'. These are rare creatures. Much like a Cyndaquil Pokemon ( for those not acquainted with Pokemon species, these are rare in the wild), unicorns have common traits that must be exhibited in order to attract the at...


How Would We React to Finding Aliens?

National Geographic News

An "alien" poses for photos at a 1987 UFO convention in New York City. We've all seen them: Scenes depicting chaos, panic, and hysteria following the detection of alien life. Buildings crumble, fires rage, riots break out, societies collapse. If that's how Earthlings are going to deal with the news...


AI-Aided Cameras Mean No More Car Mirrors, No More Blind Spots

#artificialintelligence

According to the World Health Organization, more than 1.25 million people around the world die from road accidents each year. Consequently, the United Nations has set a target of halving this number by 2020. A new technology being readied for its debut could be a step forward in achieving that ambit...


Some Deep Learnings from Applying Deep Learning

#artificialintelligence

More and more companies are building and applying deep learning models in their business. Several practical issues should be taken into consideration before these models are put into production. Consider this scenario: you may build a model that works perfectly with training and validation data, but...
