About the author:Pau Rodríguez is a research scientist at Element AI, Montreal. He earned his Ph.D. in computer science from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. His research interests include meta-learning and computer vision. Image annotation can be a bottleneck for the applicability
Modern Computer Vision (CV) and Video Analytics (VA) problems are solved with a combination of traditional methods and Deep Learning (DL). Deep Neural Network Inference becomes a crucial tool in the domain, but integrating it into the application and the further deployment is sometimes non-trivial —
We are excited to announced the result of the results of Phase 1 of OpenCV Spatial AI competition sponsored by Intel. What an incredible start! Overwhelming response : 235 submissions As stated on the contest announcement page, the goal was to select the 15 best submissions and give them a
OpenCV 4.4.0 has been released! Release highlights SIFT (Scale-Invariant Feature Transform) algorithm has been moved to the main repository (patent expired)Improvements in dnn module:Supported state-of-art Yolo v4 Detector and EfficientDet modelsMany fixes and optimizations in CUDA
Note: This article was originally posted on the OpenCV AI Kit Kickstarter campaign. OAK was started to solve a human safety issue- and that goal is still baked into the project. We also believe that in order to be maximally effective, this technology needs to be simple to use. One of the
OpenCV 5 is coming out soon. This will be a major release to celebrate 20th OpenCV anniversary! Besides many new features and improvements that OpenCV 5.0 (and, in general, OpenCV 5.x release series) will bring, such as better optimization for various architectures, support for new deep learning
Visual search has become a necessity for many multimedia applications running on today’s computing systems. Tasks such as recognizing parts of a scene in an image, detecting items in a retail store, navigating an autonomous drone, etc. have great relevance to today’s rapidly changing environment.
Update: OAK is now available on Kickstarter! AI technology is a new frontier, with limitless potential for the improvement of human lives. The OpenCV Artificial Intelligence Kit (OAK) project began life as part of CommuteGuardian, a technological solution to the causes of many bicycle -
