SKETCHAR : this AI deep learning conceptual tutor directs the users to draw the pictures easily with help of AR & NN

Drawing is an art and doesn't come naturally to everyone , some people does it for profession and some for hobby. To teach drawing to others , one has to come with fundamentals of drawing to train the students to draw from the particular direction to get the flow well . 

It is not so easy for anyone to pick up this trait so easily not unless we are completely interested in it. When this has become so difficult task for anyone even if they interested to do, there is an app that helps the users to get to drawings more quickly and effectively through Augmented Reality , neural networks and Machine Learning (i.e.,) SKETCHAR app. 

This is just an application designed specifically through which the user sees the visual image on the surface are they planning to trace or sketch. Users will be holding the phone in one hand and sees the virtual image and the other hand is meant for drawing virtual lines which are sketched on paper which is been directed by app through augmented reality and neural network pattern recognition algorithm . You can draw with either plus signs or circle symbols to initiate.

sketchar app  and drawing pen

I was recently talking about Moleskin's smart gadget but now i'd like to say something about one app that really facilitates the drawing power of any user with just + signs as start. Interesting fact in this app is you can use it anywhere like you can draw it on notebook , paper , pillow cover , any where and you can get to learn easily 


You can just start up with plus sign and you will be cycled through point by point lessons that helps you to associate layers to draw . Actually ,it works very easily by converting the content which is rendered and the original is mapped and then we need to place it on the virtual object on the surface that requires more technical approach. When each layers are approached and separated , the process is been done through automated teaching of algorithm to camera to distinguish between everything

As you can see from the above source that virtual image is located on the surface and its been snapped through smartphone which is been recognized and the paper is separated from background and its clearly separated from hands to surface and then its been detected and recognized of the drawn content. This app is an ai initiative and its fully powered with neural network training technique with the supportive of augmented reality. Not only that but also compares the false recognition and compares it out 

Whence this app knows how to separate from original objects / patterns clearly , the images are then latterly matched with original and the action of algorithm is been processed for image pattern analysis and it is very challenging app for any users to get in touch with. They also come with video tutorials for every users to follow up as per instructions shown which is very easy for anyone to understand.

Most interestingly , it is presently available for android , ios and also for Microsoft Hololens.

IBM's Watson powered voice assisted home's and car's will soon be in action

If you have watched Sherlock Holmes television series , you'd have noticed one prominent dialogue " hello my  dear Watson " to his buddy every time to close the case. Likewise, the tech giant IBM has named this Watson to do more assisted tasks through voice  as it is ai powered. Watson was under progress so far and it seems that IBM has officially launched Watson recently which has got more functions to do.Watson is not specifically designed to be brand conscious ( like Siri for Apple , Google Voice assistant only for Android phones , Bixby from Samsung ). This ai powered gizmo could be installed in any hotels , hospitals , cars and homes. Interestingly, when we talk of home assistance through voice, we could recognize Amazon Alexa  and Google's Nest from my previous posts. But this IBM Watson got our grip ahead into multi functionality assignments through voice assistance seems ti be quite interesting.

IBM Watson's partner Harmon demonstrates Watson assistant and this assisted service seems to be first done for voice assistant cyber security last year but now this function has been escalated to do wide variety of tasks that could be enabled through voice or text depending on the the device you use. Interesting isn't it ? , Whether its a home speaker or thermostat or  security systems or automated systems in car are all could be monitored and controlled through this multi faceted IBM Watson cloud powered facility through voice or text assistance. The most interesting feature of this feature is not only it will do actions based on the voice commanding assistance but also learns from the commands we assisted as it is also designed to learn from the actions and those preferences are remembered. As this IBM does our assistance tasks very effectively and also automatically by checking into hotel , rental car is coming on time , checking thermostat , your email checking also could be facilitated through cloud powdered IBM Watson to your phone automatically through IBM cloud based dashboard. It is like smart assistance enabled feature that you will receive notifications whenever the task is been performed but how ?. For that the devices should support  this IBM powered Watson and the account of IBM Watson could be enabled through IBM cloud account to get assisted and also data's could be accessed all over other Watson apps and you could imagine in future its gonna be fully powered in various gadgets as well. Please check out the video of how the IBM Watson works

ONNX : a combined team work initiative for ai developers to hover around framework easily

Human being's support are really mandatory for any field streams from planting , mining and on space as well. With the Machine Learning's day to day prudence in variety of arenas that humans consume time a lot , this deep learners does this task hand-fully in minutes span of time that are extremely brilliant . When companies like Microsoft, Facebook , Amazon join hands to frame work one need platform for ai researchers and enthusiasts ,it is truly a gift for the developers to build to put to practice. Months back , i was stating about Gluon , now i am going to state something more alike to that of is ONNX ( Open Neural Network Exchange ) a platform where re used trained network could be trained to use for multiple platforms . One of the foremost problem we face in this network while we develop is to choose the right framework. 

Though Data Researchers and Data scientists has large no. of options available , it is not so easy to port the trained model into proper framework. Even though it takes lots of tasks to train neural network signals to practice to retrain will be a stress making process for all developers to re-frame and upload it to proper channel. ONNX does this task more easily by allowing users to retrain and re-frame it through proper export without any problems that leads the users to develop and train them more quickly. Developers can import PYTORCH model in Microsoft Cognitive Tool kit or process any images in Tensor Flow flawlessly with this uni-platform. This inter operation enables the users to reuse of any models into any proper frameworks without pressure from scratch till end of the development.

onnx details in website

As you all know deep learning needs parametric training and it is not only lengthy , complex but also expensive one. In terms of time and complexity, its a round off process like if you pass each data set through ai, neural network is trained and evolved based on parameters such as input layer , hidden layer and output layer via. modern training process. If you know of neural network training method, each weight is associated with layers to be trained and processed for evaluation under correcting neurons through proper optimization say genetic algorithm or back propagation algorithm. For every evaluation , accuracy value is compared and manual adjustments are tuned manually or automatically.

Each frame work development is meant for specific purpose and developers can perform any tools without compromising quality and performance and also based on ONNX community .Google didn't join yet but it is another landmark in developing the framework projection. It has supported frameworks and converters to do it easily , also you can import and export easily between frameworks without any hassles. To how to do the import and export task , please visit their official link https://onnx.ai/getting-started and to check out the end-end tutorials please check out the github repository https://github.com/onnx/tutorials.

Piccolo ai tech will now automate and also sense your every move through its gesture recognition technique

Artificial Intelligence is taking a forward linear advances towards modern's trends on commercial necessities. From the bot developments to spatial gizmos , the presence of ai has shown significant trendsetter even with the smart automation at home , the glimpse of technological bloom has magical presence these days with the convergence of research lab using camera and voice assistants around the house. Few weeks back , i mentioned about eye tracking device tobii , now the technology has gone one stop further towards motion assistance in home through smart facility

smart camera on wooden stand

This works on the principle of Vision assistance which works similar to voice assistant and works with camera and computer algorithms. Gesturing is one of the advanced tracking stuff which piccolo focused on . Gesturing through controlling things to turn on and off. Gesture tracking works more faster like we command on alexa. Company is very specific about making it lighter and quicker through motion sensing  susceptible to change according to the motions deducted.It has one more interesting function called autopilot which means it could able to adjust itself when owner is not there. Suppose if the owner went out or slept suddenly while watching , the control senses it automatically and dims the light and also controls the temperature and also volume raising / reducing  functions through enabled assistant.

human activity is sensed as gestures through smart camera

gesture recognition movement has been recorded

The Gesture Recognition Pipeline and Device Location Pipeline indicates not only the motion based technology but also indicates the devices on apps through deep learning and 3D rendering and reconstruction with the deep mechanism to identify people and apps at good speed. That makes the camera allows you to control the gesture stuffs and create a platform to build own apps and find traces of location . It is also controlled by app too.
