In recent years, object detection and segmentation have accelerated significantly. Today, smart algorithms can find and classify countless individual objects within a video or an image. Although it was incredibly difficult for machines to do, it’s now part of our daily existence.
Both object detection and segmentation are powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL). In this scenario, convolutional neural networks can locate and identify the class each item belongs to within an image.
It has also evolved to be much more than an intelligent algorithm that can recognize objects in photographs stored in a database. It can now find and classify objects in real-time to enable things like self-driving autonomous vehicles and more.Read more
When most people think about artificial intelligence (AI), they think of two possible futures. A positive future where self-driving cars help us navigate our roads and robot servants help us maintain our homes. Or a more negative one, where machines take away our jobs and employment.
Fortunately, it looks like the negative future isn’t one that we have to worry about. AI systems won’t replace humans in the workforce, but rather they’ll exist alongside humans as invaluable sidekicks. While self-driving cars are advancing towards commonality, other grand AI aspirations await realization. Integral to achieving these goals is understanding how to train an AI effectively.Read more
Face detection technology has come a long way over the past few years. From unlocking your iPhone by scanning your face to automatically tagging photographs, most of us have encountered and benefited from it (in one way or another).
However, there’s a lot more we can do with technology than just recognizing faces. For example, it is now a tool used in marketing to help improve sales and customer experiences. Or you can use this technology in offices to mark employee attendance or provide access to secure areas automatically..
But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s define it.Read more
Face recognition is a technology that is used to identify people by their faces and is a type of biometric software. It is often used in security settings, but also has other uses such as in social media and photo tagging.
In order for AI to be able to recognize a person by their face, it needs to be presented with enough training data, or data that shows the AI how to recognize people by their faces. The training data needs to be accurate, and it must be large enough to provide a large variety of examples.Read more
Voice commerce has arrived. Today, retailers can sell products by designing experiences that leverage speech recognition technology and its capabilities.
According to Meticulous Research, wthe speech recognition market is forecasted to be worth approximately $26.79 billion by 2025 (growing at a CAGR of 17.2%). The number of voice assistants used around the world is also expected to reach a whopping 8.4 billion by 2024.
As such, speech recognition technology, like the dotcom boom, is well-placed to create a new avenue for sales teams around the planet. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s first define it.Read more
Artificial intelligence (AI) plays a role in the most varied areas of our lives. Among those are also different branches of industry, where it is used daily with increasing frequency. Which of these sectors are important, and what additional value can AI offer you if you conduct business in the corresponding fields?Read more
Many people dream of being their own boss. But just as many are afraid of putting this plan into practice. It goes without saying that the leap into self-employment brings its own set of hurdles. However, in many cases these concerns are unfounded, because you can take advantage of support in many forms nowadays. These include, for example, funding or online platforms that simplify customer acquisition, to name just two of many options. Artificial Intelligence, or AI for short, also plays an increasingly important role.Read more
Walking into many houses around the world, you’re likely to find one or perhaps more ubiquitous little speakers, scattered around. For the residents of these homes, these devices have become a key part of their lives, sharing details about meetings, travel plans, grocery lists and even weather reports. We’ve come to depend on them to help simplify our lives and entertain us.Read more
Crowdsourced voice recordings have evolved to play a critical role in the development of speech-controlled apps. As speech recognition rapidly grows from a novelty to a daily necessity, you can expect the demand for both voice recordings and voice-activated systems to rise concurrently.
According to Grand View Research, the demand for voice-activated systems and devices is expected to be worth approximately $32 billion by 2025. But what exactly are voice recordings used for? Why are crowdsourced voice recordings important?Read more
Today, thanks to technological advances, many disadvantaged and disabled individuals are able to use technology to make their lives easier and more livable. One promising area is speech recognition. This technology is at the heart of personal voice assistants like Siri, Amazon Echo, and Google, that we’ve become accustomed to using either on our smartphones or through a smart speaker in our home.Read more
