Process of achieving color and image recognition by myPalletizer AI Kit


Based on the Linux system and a 1:1 simulation model in ROS, the AI Kit composes of the vision, positioned gripping, and automatic sorting modules. Featuring computer vision, an equipped camera can recognize and locate the cubes of different colors or images through OpenCV, and then the core processor of the a robotic arm can calculate their current and targeted spatial coordinate positions, and finally grip a cube into the corresponding barrels. Now myPalletizer 260 is capitable with AI Kit, and here is the detailed process of achieving color and image recognition by myPalletizer AI Kit. According to the prompts input by the terminal, we capture the image in the second image box.

SEO in Real Life: Harnessing Visual Search for Optimization Opportunities


The most exciting thing about visual search is that it's becoming a highly accessible way for users to interpret the real world, in real time, as they see it. Rather than being a passive observer, camera phones are now a primary resource for knowledge and understanding in daily life. Users are searching with their own, unique photos to discover content. Though SEOs have little control over which photos people take, we can optimize our brand presentation to ensure we are easily discoverable by visual search tools. By prioritizing the presence of high impact visual search elements and coordinating online SEO with offline branding, businesses of all sizes can see results.

Microsoft Restricts Its Facial Recognition Tools, Citing the Need for 'Responsible AI'


Microsoft is restricting access to its facial recognition tools, citing risks to society that the artificial intelligence systems could pose. The tech company released a 27-page "Responsible AI Standard" on Tuesday that details the company's goals toward equitable and trustworthy AI. To align with the standard, Microsoft is limiting access to facial recognition tools in Azure Face API, Computer Vision and Video Indexer. "We recognize that for AI systems to be trustworthy, they need to be appropriate solutions to the problems they are designed to solve," wrote Natasha Crampton, chief responsible AI officer at Microsoft, in a blog post. She added the company would retire its Azure services that infer "emotional states and identity attributes such as gender, age, smile, facial hair, hair, and makeup."

Expressive Querying for Accelerating Visual Analytics

Communications of the ACM

In this work, we introduce the problem of visualization search and highlight two underlying challenges of search enumeration and visualization matching.

Why Pattern Recognition?


Pattern Recognition, as the name suggests is "recognizing the patterns" in simple terms. We see flowers around us and we classify them into different categories based on the number of petals, color, etc, depending on the pattern. Similarly, machines can also try to identify patterns and classify them, right? Pattern Recognition is an important scientific discipline whose goal is to identify patterns, categorizing the objects into various classes or categories. These objects could be images or signal waveforms or any measures that need to be classified.

Image Recognition Algorithm using Transfer Learning


Not having sufficient data, time or resources represents a critical complication in building an efficient image classification network. In this article, I present a straightforward implementation where I get around all these lack-of-resource constraints. We will see what transfer learning is, why it is so effective, and finally, I will go step-by-step in building an image classification learning model. The model I will develop is an alpaca vs. not alpaca classifier, i.e. a neural network capable of recognizing whether or not the input image contains an alpaca. Finally, I will test the algorithm with some alpaca pictures I personally made during one of my recent hikes.

Graph Neural Networks Combined with Semantic Reasoning Deliver 'Total AI' -


The ability for machines to reason not just identify patterns in massive data amounts, but make rule or logic based inferences on domain specific knowledge is foundational to Artificial Intelligence. The growing momentum around Neuro-Symbolic AI and the increasing reliance on Graph Analytics demonstrate how important these developments are for the enterprise. Combining AI s symbolic knowledge processing with its statistical branch (typified by machine learning) produces the best prescriptive outcomes, delivers total AI, and is swiftly becoming necessary to tackle enterprise scale applications of mission-critical processes like foretelling equipment failure, optimizing healthcare treatment, and maximizing customer relationships. Their underlying graph capabilities are ideal for applying machine learning s advanced pattern recognition to high-dimensional, non-Euclidian datasets that are too complex for other machine learning types. Organizations get two forms of reasoning in one framework by fusing GNN reasoning capabilities around relationship predictions, entity classifications, and graph clustering, with classic semantic inferencing available in Knowledge Graphs.

Core Challenges in Embodied Vision-Language Planning

Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research

Recent advances in the areas of multimodal machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) have led to the development of challenging tasks at the intersection of Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, and Embodied AI. Whereas many approaches and previous survey pursuits have characterised one or two of these dimensions, there has not been a holistic analysis at the center of all three. Moreover, even when combinations of these topics are considered, more focus is placed on describing, e.g., current architectural methods, as opposed to also illustrating high-level challenges and opportunities for the field. In this survey paper, we discuss Embodied Vision-Language Planning (EVLP) tasks, a family of prominent embodied navigation and manipulation problems that jointly use computer vision and natural language. We propose a taxonomy to unify these tasks and provide an in-depth analysis and comparison of the new and current algorithmic approaches, metrics, simulated environments, as well as the datasets used for EVLP tasks. Finally, we present the core challenges that we believe new EVLP works should seek to address, and we advocate for task construction that enables model generalizability and furthers real-world deployment.

TensorFlow adds a new library for on-device text-to-image search


TensorFlow has announced a new on-device embedding-based search library feature that allows one to quickly find similar images, text or audio from millions of data samples in a few milliseconds. It works by using a model to embed the search query into a high-dimensional vector representing the semantic meaning of the query. Then it uses ScaNN (Scalable Nearest Neighbors) to search for similar items from a predefined database. Given below is a walkthrough of an end-to-end example of building a text-to-image search feature (retrieve the images given textual queries) using the new TensorFlow Lite Searcher Library. The dual encoder model consists of an image encoder and a text encoder.
