How to use logistic regression for image classification?


Image Classification is a process of classifying various image categories to their appropriate labels or categories it is associated with. Image classification is mostly employed with Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), but this article is an attempt to showcase that even logistic regression has the capability to classify images efficiently with a reduction in computational time and also to waive off the tedious task of building complex models for image classification. Logistic Regression is one of the supervised machine learning algorithms which would be majorly employed for binary class classification problems where according to the occurrence of a particular category of data the outcomes are fixed. Logistic regression operates basically through a sigmoidal function for values ranging between 0 and 1. As mentioned earlier as this article emphasizes using Logistic Regression for Image classification we are using the Hand Sign Digit Classification dataset with two categories of images showing Hand Signs of 0 and 1.

GitHub - N0vel/weighted-hausdorff-distance-tensorflow-keras-loss: Weighted Hausdorff Distance Loss: use it as point cloud similarity metric based loss for keras and tf. Useful in keypoint detection.


Weighted Hausdorff Distance Loss: use it as a point cloud similarity metric based loss for keras and tf. This loss requires a huge tensor with dimensions (number_of_pixels * number_of_keypoints if I remember correctly) of float values. So high res picture with thousands of keypoints will consume A LOT of GPU memory (at least 1 GB for 512 pixels x 512 pixels x 1000 keypoints with float32 type). It doesn't matter if you want to detect only several points in an image.

Failure Detection in Medical Image Classification: A Reality Check and Benchmarking Testbed


In safety-critical applications such as clinical decision making, it is important to implement safeguards preventing the use of incorrect predictions from computational models (Band et al., 2021; Challen et al., 2019). These safeguards rely on failure detection methods, which aim to automatically flag suspicious model predictions. For clinical deployment, reliable failure detection is critical for patient safety, enabling automatic referral to human experts (Kompa et al., 2021). As depicted in Figure 1, failure detection frameworks are typically divided in two stages: (i) confidence scoring (to quantify the likelihood of the prediction to be correct); (ii) a thresholding-step (to reject/refer samples with a low confidence score) (Corbière et al., 2019; Jiang et al., 2018; Band et al., 2021) We propose a new benchmark for evaluating in-domain failure detection in medical imaging classification models. Our experiments show that improved reliability against out-of-distribution inputs or model calibration does not necessarily translate to improved in-domain failure detection.

Image Classification in Machine Learning [Intro + Tutorial]


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.

Image Classification model by Microsoft Lobe in Power Apps – Part 1


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.

Hyperspectral Imaging Enables Improved Machine Vision, Discussed by IDTechEx


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.

Peloton's Motion-Tracking Coaching Camera Is Finally Available and Slightly More Affordable


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.
