Date: June 17, 2017 Published by

  • Google has made more of its extensive research around machine learning and computer vision available to the open source community.
  • TensorFlow is a machine learning technology that Google open sourced in 2015 to spur development activity around deep learning and machine learning applications.
  • The TensorFlow Objection Detection API was one of two, computer vision related technologies that Google released to the open source community this week.
  • The other was MobileNets, a collection of mobile oriented computer vision models for TensorFlow.
  • MobileNets is designed to work around the resource constraints on mobile devices while also improving computer vision capabilities on them, the two Google engineers said.
