Using APIs With Computer Vision

With theaters and other public venues slowly reopening around the world, it is crucial that everyone adhere to mask-wearing to avoid further lockdowns. But how could we verify whether people really are following this rule? We could employ ushers or security personnel to act as enforcers — or we could build a computer vision application to check if everyone is wearing masks at all times, and which signals to us whenever someone isn’t. 

This scenario is one of many examples of the uses of computer vision systems. In this article, we will show you how you can use APIs to embed computer vision in your own applications.

Natural Language Processing With R

R might not be the first language that comes to mind when thinking about NLP. Short for “natural-language processing,” NLP is the discipline of making human language processable by computers. It is a growing field with thousands of applications, some of which you probably use in your daily life. Python has become the most popular language for researching and developing NLP applications, thanks in part to its readability, its vast machine learning ecosystem, and its APIs for deep-learning frameworks. However, R can be an equally good choice if you intend to quantify your language data for NLP purposes. Below, we list some of the most useful NLP libraries in R and walk through a simple NLP programming example.

The Best Deep Learning Engineer Jobs of 2020

If you’re at all keyed into artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) concepts, chances are that you’ve heard of deep learning. It’s a fascinating topic, branching off of regular ML and delving into neural networks that attempt to mimic the way the human brain works. With deep learning, machines can practice unsupervised learning and figure out how to make decisions without direct guidance from a human.

Deep learning has huge implications for futuristic tech, including natural language processing (NLP), computer vision, and bioinformatics. In fact, graduates from Udacity Nanodegree programs have used deep learning out in the real world to innovate in the healthcare sector for COVID-19 and unearth patterns in ancient Turkish art.
