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 […]
