An DeepQuest AI (A Brand of AI Commons Global Limited) project deepquestai.com.

Developed and Maintained by Moses Olafenwa and John Olafenwa, brothers, creators of TorchFusion, Authors of Introduction to Deep Computer Vision and creators of DeepStack AI Server.


Built with simplicity in mind, ImageAI supports a list of state-of-the-art Machine Learning algorithms for image prediction, custom image prediction, object detection, video detection, video object tracking and image predictions trainings. ImageAI currently supports image prediction and training using 4 different Machine Learning algorithms trained on the ImageNet-1000 dataset. ImageAI also supports object detection, video detection and object tracking using RetinaNet, YOLOv3 and TinyYOLOv3 trained on COCO dataset. Finally, ImageAI allows you to train custom models for performing detection and recognition of new objects.

Eventually, ImageAI will provide support for a wider and more specialized aspects of Computer Vision including and not limited to image recognition in special environments and special fields.

Documentation

We have provided full documentation for all ImageAI classes and functions in 2 major languages. Find links below:

Real-Time and High Performance Implementation

ImageAI provides abstracted and convenient implementations of state-of-the-art Computer Vision technologies. All of ImageAI implementations and code can work on any computer system with moderate CPU capacity. However, the speed of processing for operations like image prediction, object detection and others on CPU is slow and not suitable for real-time applications. To perform real-time Computer Vision operations with high performance, you need to use GPU enabled technologies.

ImageAI uses the Tensorflow backbone for it's Computer Vision operations. Tensorflow supports both CPUs and GPUs ( Specifically NVIDIA GPUs. You can get one for your PC or get a PC that has one) for machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms' implementations. To use Tensorflow that supports the use of GPUs, follow the link below :

### AI Practice Recommendations

For anyone interested in building AI systems and using them for business, economic, social and research purposes, it is critical that the person knows the likely positive, negative and unprecedented impacts the use of such technologies will have. They must also be aware of approaches and practices recommended by experienced industry experts to ensure every use of AI brings overall benefit to mankind. We therefore recommend to everyone that wishes to use ImageAI and other AI tools and resources to read Microsoft's January 2018 publication on AI titled "The Future Computed : Artificial Intelligence and its role in society". Kindly follow the link below to download the publication.
