Last week, Google released an awesome tool for anyone who is interested in computer vision and deep learning. It is called "Tensorflow Object Detection API". TOSHI STATS introduces this awesome API as our core computer vision framework. The image above is one of the results of detection task from the API.
I would like to explain why Object Detection API is awesome
- It has major classification models.
- It enables us to combine classification models with object detection frameworks
- It can be run locally and on Google Cloud Platform
We will make the most of this API to get insights from images and videos. See you soon!
"Tensorflow Object Detection API" was released by Google on June 15 2017
"Speed/accuracy trade-offs for modern convolutional object detectors."
