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…

Build face recognition directly into your browser

This is a demo project showing how Machine Box tech can be integrated into JavaScript applications. Facebox can take an image and tell you how many faces it sees, as well as who those faces belong to provided you have shown it a single example previously.We can use this capability to build additional security into our web apps so we can see how many people are watching the screen and who they are. Using the webcam with some JavaScript and Facebox, we can periodically check to ensure only authorized people can see the information that users consider sensitive.

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: https://www.datascience.us/artificial-intelligence-can-us/ There are many…

How my startup got to a successful exit with a developer-first strategy

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…
