Train a Face Recognition Model to Recognize Celebrities

Sam Trammell and Rustina Wesley from True Blood

Earlier this week we introduced Face Recognition, a trainable model that is hosted on Algorithmia. This model enables you to train images of people that you want the model to recognize and then you can pass in unseen images to the model to get a...

How to Censor Faces with Video Processing Algorithms

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from Wikimedia Commons

Earlier this week we introduced Censorface, an algorithm that finds the faces in images and then either blurs or puts a colored box over the faces to censor them. We thought it would be fun to pair it up with some of our video processing...

Video Editing: extracting metadata from movie scenes

Recently, we wrote a blog post about an algorithm called Scene Detection that takes a video and returns the timestamps of scenes along with subclips that are associated with the subclip's timestamps.

You can use this information to find appropriate scene lengths for creating video trailers or you...

Integrating Algorithmia with Apache Spark

A couple of weeks ago we gave a talk at the Seattle Spark Meetup about bringing together the flexibility of Algorithmia's deep learning algorithms and Spark's robust data processing platform. We highlighted the strengths of both platforms and covered a basic introduction on how to integrate...

Video Processing of Traffic Videos

Last week we wrote an algorithm spotlight about a video processing algorithm called Video Metadata Extraction. This week, we are pairing it up with a really cool microservice from an Algorithmia user called Car Make and Model Recognition that detects a car’s make and model from an image. This...

Create a Custom Color Scheme From Your Favorite Website

In a recent Algorithm Spotlight post we introduced the Color Scheme Extraction algorithm which retrieves the top 15 colors that best approximates the color scheme of an image.

The Color Scheme Extraction algorithm is a great way to retrieve the colors of an image quickly with a serverless API...

How to use an Unsharp Mask to Improve the Accuracy of Saliency Detection

In our introduction to saliency detection post, we showed how to harness the power of the human brain using a saliency algorithm to detect the most distinct and noticeable objects in an image.

Automatic SlideShare Text Summarization

In a recent post we introduced an automatic text summarizer algorithm that summarizes documents with a quick API call.

Building a Sentiment Analysis Pipeline for Web Scraping

In an earlier post, we introduced the Sentiment Analysis algorithm and showed how easy it was to retrieve the sentiment score from text content through an API call.

In this post, we’ll show how to build a sentiment analysis pipeline that grabs all the links from a web page, extracts the text...

An Emotion Recognition API for Analyzing Facial Expressions

Reading emotional expression is one of the most difficult tasks for humans, let alone computers. Two people looking at the same photo might not agree whether someone is grimacing or grinning. Until recently, computers weren’t much better at the job, either.

Fortunately advances in deep learning...
