Automating Object Detection in Images, NVIDIA’s Open Source Video-to-Video Technique, and more Machine Learning Resources!
Most amateur and junior data scientists tend to find object detection a tricky challenge. Understanding the different parameters of an image takes practice and experience, so MIT designed and open sourced an algorithm that automatically detects objects in images for you! A great way to start the week.
Other highlights from the past week: chorrrds is an exquisite R package for music data, NVIDIA unleashed a super impressive video-to-video translation technique using PyTorch, and more eye-opening resources and articles below!
- UC Berkeley’s Incredible Pose Detection and Translation technique will leave you Speechless: UC Berkeley’s latest technique is truly stunning — it uses poses estimation to transfer the motions of a human in one video to another human subject in a different video! The level of detail and accuracy is incredible. Check out the video inside!
- MIT’s Open Source Algorithm Automates Object Detection in Images (with GitHub link): If you find object detection to be tricky, this is the perfect article for you. MIT has open sourced it’s algorithm that automatically detects objects in images, and even extracts those objects and translates them into a different background! Research paper, video, and GitHub links are included inside.
- NVIDIA Open Sourced a Video-to-Video Translation Technique using PyTorch — and it is Super Impressive: Here’s a goldmine for all computer vision and deep learning fans — NVIDIA has open sourced PyTorch code for an incredible video-to-video translation technique! You can even use it to predict what will happen in the next frame of the video. This article covers the technique and provides plenty of resources to get you started.
- chorrrds — A Superb R Package for Analyzing and Working with Music Data: Music analysis in R? It’s now possible thanks to the chorrrds package! It’s a simple-to-use package and comes pre-loaded with several datasets. You can install it directly from CRAN so get your hands on it NOW!
- NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti set for Enabling Faster Deep Learning: NVIDIA has launched its 2000 series graphics cards, which are expected to accelerate deep learning performance in the coming months. The company claims its 40% faster than GTX 1070, which would make this an absolute beast!
- Facebook and NYU’s Powerful AI System will Make MRI Scans up to 10 Times Faster!: AI is transforming healthcare and we have another HUGE development for you. Facebook and the NYU School of Medicine have joined hands to design an AI system that will make MRI scans up to 10 times faster! The proposed system uses artificial neural networks to accelerate MRI scanning.
