Object Detection

Spring 2022

This new feature is a continuation of and improvement on our previous Image Processing release. Now, Object Detection lets you go a step further with your image data and allows you to locate objects and annotate regions in your images. Once your image regions are defined, you can train and evaluate Object Detection models, make predictions with them, and automate end-to-end Machine Learning workflows on a single platform. To make that possible, BigML enables Object Detection by introducing the regions optype.

As with any other BigML feature, Object Detection is available from the BigML Dashboard, API, and WhizzML for automation. Object Detection is extremely helpful to tackle a wide range of computer vision use cases such as medical image analysis, quality control in manufacturing, license plate recognition in transportation, people detection in security surveillance, among many others.
