IBM Developer Event: Create a real-time object detection app with Watson
October 30 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm EDT
NYC Blockchain Center and Founding Member IBM Developer Team cohost this series of developer events.
Please bring proof of RSVP and ID in order to attend.
Whether you are counting cars on a road or people who are stranded on rooftops in a natural disaster, there are plenty of use cases for object detection. Often times, pre-trained object detection models do not suit your needs and you need to create your own custom models. How can you use machine learning to train your own custom model without substantive computing power and time? Watson Machine Learning. How can you use your custom-trained model to detect objects, in real time, with complete user privacy, all on a device with limited computing power? Apple’s Core ML, TensorFlow.js, and TensorFlow Lite.
In this workshop, you will learn how to build an app that lets you use your own custom-trained models to detect objects. You’ll create an IBM Cloud Object Storage instance to store your labeled data, then after your data is ready, you’ll learn how to start a Watson Machine Learning instance to train your own custom model on top-of-the-line GPUs. After your model has completed training, you can plug the model into your application.
By the end of this workshop attendees should be able to:
– Label data that can be used for object detection
– Use your custom data to train a model using Watson Machine Learning
– Detect objects with Core ML
6:30pm – doors open, food & networking
6:45pm – introductions round robin
7-8pm – workshop
8-8:30pm – Q&A + networking
8:45pm – venue closes
Who is this event for?
This workshop is for both beginners, experienced developers, makers, tech enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and anyone who is interested in rapid prototyping or is just curious about flow-based programming.
