The goal of computer vision is not only to enable machines to see the visual world and to interpret them in a human way, but also to have the abilities beyond human vision thanks to full spectrum cameras from UV to IR. Big data, distributed GPUs, and state-of-the-art deep learning techniques are combined at boot.AI BILD to create custom-fit solutions for a broad range of applications from automation to autonomous systems. Clients are provided with direct benefits by cutting down development time and expanding operating capability.
Face recognition performs the task of identifying or verifying a person by comparing and analyzing patterns based on facial features extracted from face images. It is widely used for security applications – like tracking criminals more easily or protecting data with your own face instead of a username and password, though there is increasing interest in other areas like augmented reality.
Object DetectionObject detection performs the task of finding all objects in an image and drawing bounding boxes around them. It is one of the most common used techniques in a broad range of applications such as surveillance, security and advanced driver assistance systems.
Optical Character RecognitionOptical character recognition performs the task of converting images of typed, handwritten, or printed text into editable and searchable data. It allows users to save a lot of time and effort in various applications from exploiting text-related content in images to scanning and extracting information in documents.
Image ClassificationImage classification performs the task of assigning one label to an input image depending on the image content. It is one of the most fundamental problems in Computer Vision that, despite its simplicity, appears in most practical problems.
Object TrackingObject tracking performs the task of locating a moving object or multiple objects while maintaining a unique ID for each object over time and controlling the camera if necessary. It is often combined with object detection in a variety of applications such as human-computer interaction, surveillance, security, counting systems.
Semantic SegmentationSemantic segmentation performs the task of understanding an image at pixel level by assigning a label to every pixel in an image in order to identify image regions of same characteristics (like “street”, “person”). Some of the practical applications of semantic segmentation are in medical imaging, autonomous driving and traffic control systems.
Instance SegmentationInstance segmentation performs the task of assigning a label and entity ID to each pixel in an image in order to identify image regions of same instance (like “person 1”, “person 2”). Instance segmentation can be used in many applications where we need to localize each instance in the image like object detection, but at pixel-level accuracy like semantic segmentation.
Action RecognitionVision-based action recognition performs the task of identifying and inferring human actions or goals of one or more people based upon a series of observations or video clips. Due to its multifaceted nature, it can be immensely useful in very different fields related to human activities such as home-based rehabilitation, security-related applications, healthcare and logistics support.
Cutting-edge Natural Language Processing technologies are leveraged to understand and derive meaning from text related data. boot.AI WORT boosts company efficiency by automating business processes, getting insights and saving massive hours of manual text data processing.
Machine TranslationMachine translation means the software-supported translation of a language A into a language B and vice versa. It consists of both language analysis and language generation. Machine translation enables people who do not speak the same language to work together and facilitates the learning of foreign languages.
Information ExtractionInformation extraction performs the task of automatically finding structured information from unstructured machine-readable documents. Information extraction, at a basic level, identifies named entity mentions such as products, organizations, locations and time expressions. At a deeper level, information extraction can find events, relationships and coreferences hiding deeply in written text.
Sentiment AnalysisSentiment analysis, also known as opinion mining or emotion AI, refers to the automated process of identifying opinions within written or spoken language. Companies may use sentiment analysis to understand what customers think about their products and services. Beyond determining simple polarity (positive, neutral, negative), sentiment analysis can extract deeper understanding of the context such as the aspects and the emotions of the opinions.
Question Answering SystemQuestion Answering System refers to computer systems with the capability of answering the questions posed by humans in a natural language. These systems first translate sentences into a machine-representation, then try to find supported data in databases to generate valid answers. Question Answering Systems are becoming more and more popular thanks to Siri, Google Home, so-called virtual assistants.
Text SummarizationText Summarization states the main ideas or facts in compact statements from a single or a bunch of documents. Considering the nowadays information overload, text summarization can help a company in data analysis and fast decision-making.
Attention Mechanism (in Natural Language Processing)Attention mechanism (in Natural Language Processing) refers to the idea of allowing the decoder to attend to different parts of a source sentence at each step of the output generation, instead of encoding the full sentence into a fixed-length vector. The algorithm learns what to attend to – based on the input sentence and what it has produced so far. One of the problems that researchers have struggled with is how to link pronouns to antecedents, which resulted in this old joke, mimicking the call and response of a protest march: What do we want? – Natural language processing! When do we want it? – Sorry, when do we want what? A neural network armed with an attention mechanism can actually understand what “it” is referring to. That is, it knows how to disregard the noise and focus on what’s relevant.
Data acquisition from industrial plants can be distributed or streamed and has highly dynamic properties. This data can be collected from practice via IoT networks with a variety of sensors and digital devices. Thanks to the enormous development of machine learning and deep learning techniques, we are now able to develop novel methods to truly explore the meaning of data.
