A friend once told me about an experiment where someone left a new car in the street — it remained there untouched for a week. They repeated the experiment again, but this time they made a deliberate crack in the windscreen of the car, and within a few days, the car was completely burnt out. Because of a…
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.
Objectbox is state-of-the-art machine learning technology that developers can use to train their own custom object detection engines. It is a unique tool in the market, accessible to those without data science expertise, combining advanced object detection capabilities with a user-friendly interface that allows users to get immediate feedback on detection efficacy.
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?
