Finding the Right Model with the New alwaysAI Model Catalog

With the new alwaysAI model catalog, you can now search for a computer vision model by specific criteria; for instance, you can search by label to ensure that the model includes a label for the type of entity that your application needs to be able to recognize. You can also search for a model that is compatible with the kind of service that you want your application to provide (object detection, image classification, or pose estimation), and then further refine your search with filters for...

How To Change Computer Vision Models in the alwaysAI Platform

In this tutorial, we will show you the steps needed to change the computer vision model in the alwaysAI application. Your development computer and edge device (if you're using one) should be set up based on the instructions on our dashboard. You should also have an app running like this object detector starter app. Finally, you should have a Terminal window open.

How to Boost Performance on an Edge Device

In this tutorial, we will show you the steps needed to boost the performance of your edge device. You will need a hardware accelerator that is supported by alwaysAI - like Intel’s Neural Compute Stick 2. We'll have more information on hardware accelerators in our documentation which will be publicly available soon. Until then, apply for our beta to get access to our docs.

Computer Vision Application Development Lifecycles Explained

Computer vision-based deep learning projects might seem far beyond the ken of what you and your development team have tackled in the past — however, even though it is an emerging technology, the software development cycle remains relatively similar to that of many projects you may already be familiar with.

How to Create and Run a Real-time Object Detector Starter App in Minutes

In this tutorial, we will show you the steps needed to get a real-time object detector starter app up and running quickly and easily on an edge device. You should have already set up your development computer and installed the alwaysAI dependencies in CLI. For more information on system requirements and supported boards, check out our Docs.
