IVA Pipelines with NVIDIA TLT and Deepstream SDK 5.0

We have seen applications in industries like retail, telemedicine, and robotics enabled by video analytics with machine learning. ML practitioners often leverage transfer learning with pretrained models to expedite development. Computer vision applications can benefit from using video analytics frameworks to facilitate faster iteration and experimentation. NVIDIA’s TLT toolkit and the Deepstream SDK 5.0 have made it easy to experiment with various network architectures and quickly deploy them on a NVIDIA powered device for optimized inference....

Population Health Modeling

In a matter of months, the COVID-19 pandemic has besieged humanity and now the world wrestles to manage the population health challenges of a novel coronavirus with remarkable infectivity. Organizing an effective response to blunt the impact of such a large, complex challenge demands a principled and scientific approach. Better Planning by Forecasting Infections Reliable forecasting is crucial for planning and allocating limited resources efficiently and minimizing casualties. A most important characteristic of an infective virus is its average rate of reproduction or $R_0$....

Deepfake Detection: Challenge Accepted

Advances in methods to generate photorealistic but synthetic images have prompted concerns about abusing the technology to spread misinformation. In response, major tech companies like Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft partnered to sponsor a contest hosted by Kaggle to mobilize machine learning talent to tackle the challenge. With $1 million in prizes and nearly half a terabyte of samples to train on, this contest requires the development of models that can be deployed to combat deepfakes....

Protecting Privacy With Computer Vision

Check out and contribute to our collection of data privacy resources! AI researchers developed models to identify image pixels featuring people. We apply this to promote privacy by helping you redact personally identifiable info in images. This demo is powered by Tensorflow.js! Drop an image and retrieve the redacted output without ever sending data over the internet. Click on your redacted image when it’s done to save. Consider another use case of delivery robots roaming the streets....

Human Activity Recognition with Pose Estimation

Check out the repo and enjoy the video on YogAI and ActionAI Wanting a personal trainer to help track our fitness goals, we figured we could build our own. The goal was to build an application that could track how we were exercising and began with Yoga as a simple context. We dubbed our first iteration of this application as YogAI. We thought about the YogAI concept for some time....
