alwaysAI Product

alwaysAI set out to create a platform for developers to easily and affordably build and deploy computer vision (CV) applications on edge devices. Early this year, alwaysAI came out of beta and officially released a...

Introduction to Computer Vision Model Training

Training a computer vision model is one component of a complex and iterative undertaking, which can often seem daunting. At alwaysAI we want to make the process simple and approachable. To get you started, we have compiled a general overview of the training process of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) for use in computer vision applications. We will focus on supervised learning in this overview, which uses labeled training data to teach the model what the desired output is. This article provides...

Transform Your Business with Computer Vision

Computer vision (CV) is a huge part of Industry 4.0 and the changing technological landscape as we know it. Computer vision will allow deeper, more impactful insights into businesses in all sectors. Healthcare providers will be able to more quickly and safely diagnose and treat patients. Manufacturing operations will have enhanced security and productivity. Companies looking for more security while operating virtually, can use computer vision to keep track of their assets, and assure the...

How a High School Student Gave His Robot Sight with alwaysAI

Christian Piper is a 16-year-old high school student from Pennsylvania, who equipped his First Robotics Competition robot with machine learning sight. He did this with the alwaysAI platform.

Using Multiple Object Detection Models

In this article I will demonstrate how to easily modify existing apps offered with alwaysAI to use two object detection models simultaneously, and to display the output in side-by-side frames.

How to Identify Birds (or Anything Else) Using Image Classification

In this guide, we’ll be focusing on image classification. What is image classification? It is a technique used in computer vision to identify and categorize the main content in a photo or video.

How to Recognize Human Activity Using alwaysAI

The ability to recognize human activity with computer vision allows us to create applications that can interact with and respond to a user in real time. For instance, we can make an application that gives feedback to a user in the moment so that they can learn how to recreate the perfect golf swing, or that sends an immediate alert for help when someone has fallen, or that generates an immersive augmented reality experience based on the user's position.

It's Time to Focus on Computer Vision

At the dawn of a new decade, mobile devices already dominate our personal and professional lives. During the 2020s, computer vision (CV) will come more into focus.

How to Detect People Using alwaysAI

Detecting people can be an important part of applications across many industries. Common use cases include security applications that track who’s coming and going, as well as safety systems designed to keep people out of harm’s way.

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.
