Computer Vision Object Detection with San Francisco Bay ACM

A how-to talk on getting started in computer vision and data annotation with the the San Francisco Bay Association for Computing Machinery group

I recently had the pleasure of being invited to speak about getting started with computer vision, data annotation, and object detection with the San Francisco Bay ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) group.

I’d like to give a huge shoutout to all the organizers for running such a smooth virtual event! I encourage you to check out their upcoming talks!

Watch the Talk & Find Resources Below:

Workshop Recording:

Build your own object detection model from start to finish. Includes overview of computer vision applications, step-by-step instructions on data annotation, and model training with your own dataset.

Sense Data Annotation with AI-Powered Labeling Tools:

Sign up for Sense Data Annotation to get started for free

Sense Data Annotation is an online computer vision labeling tool with AI-Powered tools to speed up the labeling process (see video below)!

Sense supports labeling with rectangles (bounding boxes) for object detection, polygons (masks) for instance segmentation, feature points for pose estimation, classes for classification, and a generic text option

Sense also supports most major export formats such as COCO, VOC Pascal, Create ML, YOLO, and Sense JSON.

Detectron2 Google Colab Notebook:

In this workshop we use the Detectron2 library from Facebook AI. It’s a great way to get started building models for object detection, instance segmentation or pose estimation! You can find links to my notebook used during the talk, and the official resources below:
