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…
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.
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.
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: https://www.datascience.us/artificial-intelligence-can-us/ There are many…
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….
As someone who has spent a lot of time working with media companies implementing machine learning, I get asked a lot about the ability to detect smoking in video. It’s a big issue for distributing media content to other countries, but it also demands that we ask some tough questions about the current state of…
Did you ever wonder why the artwork Netflix uses for different shows sometimes changes when you login to your account day-to-day?
In January of 2018, I helped found a machine learning startup with 2 other people. 9 months later I sold it for $5 million. What was our secret? We put developers first. In this post, I intend to share with you how putting developers first can help your tech project/startup/company/enterprise really take off. Our goal with…
At Machine Box, we’ve always been about empowering you to build amazing things with simple machine learning tools. One important aspect of this approach is ownership. When you use Machine Box, you get complete control of all of your data, and nowhere is this more important than in surveillance and face recognition. Back in May…
I admit, we’ve made it almost too easy to deploy a state-of-the-art face recognition machine learning model. So easy in fact, the only thing you need to know to try it for yourself is how to copy and paste commands into Terminal (and how to open a web browser). It’s great to make things so simple, but…
