Anirudh Koul, Senior Data Scientist, and Jin Yamamoto, Principal Program Manager, both from Microsoft, present the “Infusing Visual Understanding in Cloud and Edge Solutions Using State Of-the-Art Microsoft Algorithms” tutorial at the May 2018 Embedded Vision Summit.
Microsoft offers its state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms, used internally in several products, through the Cognitive Services cloud APIs. With best-in-class results on industry benchmarks, these APIs cover a broad spectrum of tasks spanning image classification, object detection, image captioning, face recognition, OCR and more. Beyond the cloud, these algorithms even run locally on mobile or edge devices, or via Docker containers, for real-time scenarios. In this talk, Koul and Yamamoto explain more about these APIs and tools, and how you can easily get started today to make both the cloud and edge visually intelligent.
