Use object recognition to make sure your car hasn’t been stolen

What? What a strange title for a blog post. That is like saying “Don’t not use your telephone to avoid not making phone calls”. But I think it accurately describes the way in which I’m going to show you how to use machine learning to make sure your car is still in your driveway. Several…

Too many upside down photos? Take 20 minutes and use AI to flip them.

Its great when you’ve spent 2 hours scanning photos only to suddenly notice you’ve scanned some random number of them upside down. Rather than painfully go through each one and flip them, you might feel like you’d rather just jump in front of a truck. Well, when a customer came to us with a similar…


Make OCR Great Again

OCR, or Optical Character Recognition, is an awesome tool for turning printed text into digital deliciousness. Existing open source libraries and tools work great… on documents. Where they fall down is in just about every other scenario… until now (hopefully). If you are a lawyer, and have been for 30 or so years, you’ve probably…


Introducing Objectbox — Super Simple Object Detection

We are extremely excited to announce the release of a brand new box from Machine Box. Introducing Objectbox, the super-simple, fully trainable, object detection solution…in a box. Now, you can tackle use cases like; Tracking the prevalence and value of brands and logos across all your media content. Counting the number of people walking by your booth at a trade show. Improving OCR results by selecting specific sections of your video to process.


Build a fake news detector

What is fake news? That is a difficult question to answer. Is it satire? Is it opinions pieces? Is it factual inaccuracies? With the proliferation of social sharing and user submitted content, we’ve opened up our democracies and institutions to a level of abuse, rhetoric, and influence that is unprecedented. Fortunately, we think machine learning can help.


Understand these four advanced concepts to sound like a machine learning master

This is a sequel to the post I wrote over a year ago about some basic concepts of machine learning. Sometimes sequels are better like Terminator 2 or Wrath of Kahn, but you can’t enjoy them unless you’ve see the first movie. Go read that post and come back. I’ll wait… source: There are many…


To win at AI you have to cheat

Having the most accurate and useful machine learning is not about having the best algorithms or the biggest data set. That’s so 2017! Artificial intelligence and machine learning are fantastic new tools, and I’ve personally seen them used to solve a myriad of use cases and generate a lot of productivity for companies big and small….
