Using Object Detection on IoT Devices

Something big is happening. The real world is being radically transformed by tech that has never had as much intelligence and capability as it does today. Sea changes are on the horizon and forward-thinking businesses are shifting their development focus to arguably the most significant change since the invention of the printed circuit board.

A Developer’s Intro to Object Detection

Whenever any collection of objects enter your field of vision, your brain instinctively begins the processes of recognition and localization. One of the core challenges of computer vision is to replicate this intelligence in a computer. This is impossible without a proper understanding of human vision and visual perception. The study of biological vision has revealed that the human eyes and brain are connected to an intricate level of functioning. While the eyes receive the visual data, the...
