Keras Mask R-CNN

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Keras and Mask R-CNN to perform instance segmentation (both with and without a GPU). Using Mask R-CNN we can perform both: Object detection, giving us the (x, y)-bounding box coordinates of for each object in an image. Instance segmentation, enabling us to obtain a pixel-wise mask for […]

OpenCV Saliency Detection

Today’s tutorial is on saliency detection, the process of applying image processing and computer vision algorithms to automatically locate the most “salient” regions of an image. In essence, saliency is what “stands out” in a photo or scene, enabling your eye-brain connection to quickly (and essentially unconsciously) focus on the most important regions. For example — […]

An interview with Francois Chollet

In today’s blog post, I interview arguably one of the most important researchers and practitioners in modern day deep learning, Francois Chollet. Francois is not only the creator of the Keras deep learning library, but he’s also a Google AI researcher. He will also be speaking at PyImageConf 2018 in August of this year. Inside this interview Francois discusses: […]

An interview with David Austin: 1st place and $25,000 in Kaggle’s most popular image classification competition

In today’s blog post, I interview David Austin, who, with his teammate, Weimin Wang, took home 1st place (and $25,000) in Kaggle’s Iceberg Classifier Challenge. David and Weimin’s winning solution can be practically used to allow safer navigation for ships and boats across hazardous waters, resulting in less damages to ships and cargo, and most […]

Reading barcodes with Python and OpenMV

What if I said that there’s a camera that: Is low cost at $65. Runs MicroPython. And can be expanded with shields just like an Arduino/RPi. Meet OpenMV! I met Kwabena Agyeman, the founder of OpenMV, during the PyImageSearch Gurus Kickstarter campaign in January 2015.  At that time, Kwabena and the OpenMV team were running […]

Real-time object detection on the Raspberry Pi with the Movidius NCS

Today’s post is inspired by Danielle, a PyImageSearch reader who emailed me last week and asked: Hi Adrian, I’m enjoying your blog and I especially liked last week’s post about image classification with the Intel Movidius NCS. I’m still considering purchasing an Intel Movidius NCS for a personal project. My project involves object detection with […]
