Amazon Rekognition Is An Image Recognition Service By Amazon  #aws #Reinvent #machinelearning

  • Amazon Rekognition Is An Image Recognition Service By Amazon
  • According to Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels, “Amazon Rekognition democratizes the application of deep learning technique for detecting objects, scenes, concepts, and faces in your images, comparing faces between two images, and performing search functionality across millions of facial feature vectors that your business can store with Amazon Rekognition.”
  • Now it seems that Amazon wants in as well as they have announced Amazon Rekognition .
  • As to who might be taking advantage of Amazon’s Rekognition service remains to be seen, as well as the various applications that it might be used for.

MIT’s deep-learning software produces videos of the future

MIT’s deep-learning software produces videos of the future

  • The software uses a deep-learning algorithm that was trained on two million unlabeled videos amounting to a year’s worth of screen time.
  • Posted by Shane Hinshaw in categories: information science , robotics/AI , transportation
  • The new software is claimed to be more accurate, by producing up to 32 frames per second and building out entire scenes in one go.
  • The technology is still bare-bones, but could one day make for smarter self-driving cars that are better prepared for the unexpected, among other applications.
  • Well, scientists at MIT have just trained machines to do the same thing, with artificial intelligence software that can take a single image and use it to to create a short video of the seconds that followed.

Google’s prototype machine learning software lets you enhance low-res photos

Google's prototype machine learning software lets you enhance low-res photos

  • Now compare that to the composite image below, which shows the low-res image on the left, and the traditionally upsampled version on the right.
  • In the composite image from Google below, the top section is the original, low-res picture, and the bottom is the RAISR-enhanced version.
  • The adaptive upsampling means the resulting, zoomed images are less blurry.
  • But while traditional upsampling methods make these images bigger by filling in new pixel values using fixed rules, RAISR adapts its methods to the type of image its looking at.
  • Google PhotoScan turns your prints into high-quality digital images

Pulling up a low-quality image and telling the computer to “enhance” the resolution has long been the stuff of TV fantasy. But, thanks to machine learning, we are actually getting much better at…

Could artificial intelligence replace judges and lawyers?

  • The BBC is not responsible for the content of external sites.
  • Lead researcher Dr Nikolaos Aletras, from University College London, told the Today programme the system would not spell the end of judges but could be used to prioritise cases most likely to involve human rights violations.
  • An artificial intelligence system has correctly predicted the verdicts of cases heard at the European Court of Human Rights, with a 79% accuracy.

Facebook Gives Away Machine Vision Tools of the Future

Facebook’s Artificial Intelligence Research (FAIR) is giving away machine vision tools

  • Facebook Gives Away Machine Vision Tools of the Future
  • Area Filmmaker Not So Thrilled Trump Used His Footage in an Ad
  • The company has the tools to the public-open sourced them-so that any developer can play with the code and use it in their own projects.
  • His team has built a set of tools that does just that.
  • For example, the company eventually build software that could fully describe photos to blind users ( it’s already part of the way there ).

Prisma Gives Your Photos the Look of Famous Paintings

New App Gives Your Photos the Look of Famous Paintings  #DeepLearning

  • Prisma is a new camera app that transforms your photos to look like paintings by famous artists.
  • It goes beyond the film simulation filters that are widely available these days to offer a surprisingly realistic painting filter.
  • Five years later, a photographer has ventured into the zone to deliver photos to the outside world.
  • You’re then presented with a long list of icons representing the different art styles you can transform your photo into.
  • The same year, American photographer Berenice Abbott received funding for a “Changing New York” photo project to document New York City.
