Elements of Machine Intelligence for Visual eCommerce
Recent developments in deep learning has helped computer vision to harness the information in large image data collections and be viable for practical applications. Although computer vision has huge potential for commerce, only a small portion of it has been materialized. In this talk, we will present various elementary components that enable machine intelligence using computer vision. This includes image quality, visual search, segmentation, pose estimation, iris/face recognition, coarse and fine grained prediction.
