#AI – AI for Earth, AI tools in the hands of those working to solve global environmental challenges

Hi !

When I was in Ohio @CodeMash, I was lucky enough to meet Jennifer Marsman, Principal Engineer & speaker on the AI for Earth team at Microsoft (@jennifermarsman). She hosted an amazing session where she shared details about some projects on AI for Earth.

AI for Earth puts Microsoft cloud and AI tools in the hands of those working to solve global environmental challenges

See references

The work that the AI for Earth teams are doing are amazing, and I was really impressed by the “Mexican whale story”. The team uses image analysis to identify individual animals in regular persons photos or videos, and using meta data like date and location of a photo or a video, they can generate paths of animal migration. And yes, the photos came from public social media spaces like Facebook, Instagram or YouTube.

So, I got this information as a draft for a while, and now I get some more details and it makes sense to share it. The project name is Wild Me:

Wild Me is using computer vision and deep learning algorithms to power Wildbook, a platform that can identify individual animals within a species.  They also augment their data with an intelligent agent that can mine social media. 

And as usual, a video is the best way to explain this:

Besides Wild Me, there are other amazing projects like SilviaTerra or FarmBeats. You can find the complete list of projects and challenges here (link).

Happy Coding!

#Python – The best way to explain how jupyter notebooks works with Visual Studio Code @Code

Hi !

So, after my yesterday post [Edit and work with Jupyter notebooks in Visual Studio Code], today some people asked me how the Jupyter Notebooks and Python integration works.

The best way to explain this is with a simple animated video with the following actions

  • Create a cell using the prefix # %%
  • Run the cell and display the output in Python Interactive
  • Create a new cell
  • Run the new cell and the previous one
  • Analyze output in Python Interactive

I think this 15 seconds are good enough to understand the benefits of Jupyter Notebooks and Visual Studio Code.

Happy Coding!

#WinML – Updated demo using Tiny YOLO V2 1.2, Windows 10 and YOLOV2 for Object Detection Series

Windows 10 and YOLOV2 for Object Detection Series


Hi!

There is a new Tiny YOLO V2 version in Azure AI Gallery

Tiny YOLOv2 1.2

I’ve updated my sample in GitHub to use this new version

https://github.com/elbruno/Blog/tree/master/20180806%20UwpMLNet%20TinyYoloV2%201.2

And it seems that Windows Insiders, are still having issues loading ONNXs models. My current build is 17730.1000

Buenas!

Ya tenemos disponible una nueva version de Tiny YOLO V2 en Azure AI Gallery

Tiny YOLOv2 1.2

Así que he actualizado el sample en GitHub para que utilice esta nueva version

https://github.com/elbruno/Blog/tree/master/20180806%20UwpMLNet%20TinyYoloV2%201.2

Y solo recordar que la carga de modelos ONNX parece que sigue sin funcionar en las versiones de Windows Insiders, en mi caso la build 17730.1000

#Personal – “Cindy Healy, always check the cables” or the best way to encourage you to study an engineering career #GoalCast #GoalCast

Hi!

There are many programs to promote diversity in work environments. Many of these programs also focus on encouraging women to study engineering careers.

In my particular case, I think that the next 4 minutes are the best way to explain what you can do by being an engineer.

Important: If you’ve read the book, and you’ve seen the movie, what Cindy Healy says it’s becomes much more important!

Buenas!

Hay muchos programas para promover la diversidad en los ambientes de trabajo. Muchas de estos programas también se centran en animar a que las mujeres estudien carreras de ingeniería.

En mi caso particular, creo que los siguientes 4 minutos son la mejor forma de explicar lo que puedes hacer siendo un ingeniero o ingeniera.

Importante: Si has leído el libro, y has visto la película, ¡lo que comenta Cindy Healy tiene el doble de valor!

#Event – Video of [Introduction to Machine Learning.Net] and full disconnection moment while I was running to escape from the bears in northern Canada

Hi!

I have to take advantage of the fact that there is just a satellite above me, because in the middle of northern Canada, I only have internet 10 minutes a day.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to MundoSQL to share 60 minutes with an introduction to Machine Learning.Net for programmers. My friend Juan Carlos was living by a series of misfortunes that keep him On Hold during this time. Luckily, everything has returned to normal and he has already been able to upload the recording of the session

By the way, not being connected is compensated with these 360 ​​views

And being able to run half marathons in places like this

#Event – Grabación del evento Introducción a Machine Learning.Net y fotos de desconexión total mientras corro para escapar de los osos en el norte de Canada

Buenas!

Tengo que aprovechar que justo hay un satélite arriba mio, ya que en el medio del norte de Canada, solo tengo internet 10 minutos al dia (literales!)

Hace unas semanas tuve la suerte de ser invitado a MundoSQL para hablar 1 hora con una introducción a Machine Learning.Net para programadores. Al amigo Juan Carlos se le sumaron una serie de desdichas que lo tuvieron OnHold durante este tiempo. Por suerte, todo ha vuelto a la normalidad y ya ha podido subir la grabación de la sesión

Por cierto, no estar conectado se compensa con estas vistas 360

Y pudiendo correr medias maratones en sitios como este
