GSoC’21 Poor Man’s REKOGNITION END LOG
What is PoorMan’s Rekognition?
Poor Man’s Rekognition (PMR) is an open-source alternative to amazon’s Rekogniton API service. It is capable of facial analysis, object detection, text detection, scene detection and has the potential to be much more.
What has been added during this summer?
This year the project has focused on being more compatible for developers, providing a snappier experience for the end-users, and making a robust CI for maintainers.
Major changes are listed as follows:
- Dev environment compatible with python3.6–3.8-> LINK
- LANMS pip package for python3.6–3.8-> LINK
- Fixing CI pipeline-> LINK
- Adding tests for video features-> LINK
- Added offline testing script -> LINK
- Upgrading the project to TensorFlow V2 ->LINK
- Adding TextBoxes++ for SSD textbox detection-> LINK
- Adding efficientdet for object-detection with 12 new classes-> LINK
- Making a docker file for containerized deployment-> LINK
To Be Done:
- Adding Image Captioning model
- upgrading scene detection model to efficientnet
How can you use the service?
Now for the end-user, you might want to use a fully abstracted version of PMR so that you can integrate it with your application. In that case, I would recommend you to go to the dockerfile way.
step 1: Clone the repository
git clone https://github.com/pymit/Rekognition
Step 2: Build a docker image
docker image build ./
this will print a unique image ID at the end. Note that down.
run the built image with port 8000 exposed
docker run -p 8000:8000 <IMAGEID>
Now you are all set to make API calls to PMR.
