Google’s on-device ML Kit recently introduced another API for barcode scanning. It can read and scan almost a dozen different types of barcodes including Codabar, Code 39, Code 93, EAN-8, EAN-13, QR code, PDF417, and more.
The barcode scanning API also tells you the scanned format and it will automatically detect the formats. The other main feature of this API is that you can use it in your application without a network connection and it will support the different orientation.

Augmented Reality (AR) is a digital virtual interface that overlaps created images on top of the real world, generally through a phone. AR necessitates the use of an app to provide the consumer with a superior experience. But people can be adamant about not installing another app. But there’s a solution to reaching your audience without asking them to download — using their already existing apps.

In photograph and video editing, color grading is an important step in the process to enrich the content and make it look more appealing. This is done by adjusting the image/video in specific ways to create a stylistic effect, giving the content a cinematic look. One common way of achieving this consistently across various editing software is by using a LUT (Look Up Table).

The introduction of iOS 14 brought in a slew of enhancements and interesting new features in Apple’s computer vision framework.
Vision framework was released in 2017 in a bid to allow mobile application developers to leverage complex computer vision algorithms with ease. Specifically, the framework incorporates a host of pre-trained deep learning models whilst also acting as a wrapper to quickly run your own custom Core ML models.

Sensor fusion is one of the key aspects of self-driving cars.
If we take a look at the 4 main elements of self-driving vehicles, we can categorize sensor fusion a part of both the perception and the localization world. The reason is simple: both these disciplines use multiple sensors to function.
For example, perception is using cameras, LiDARs, and RADARs to detect obstacles’ classes, positions, and velocities with high accuracy. Localization, on the other hand, fuses GPS, LiDAR, and camera data to get an accurate position with centimeter-level accuracy.

Today we’re excited to announce the Fritz AI Dataset Collection System, an important piece in our effort to help ML teams and developers generate, collect, and use data for mobile machine learning projects.
Data is a critical component to AI workflows, and the best data comes from the real world, where your models are (or will be) deployed.
For mobile machine learning projects, that means a user’s phone. The new Dataset Collection system makes it easy to gather this data through the same convenient SDK that delivers and runs your models.

When the dust settled on a recent mobile machine learning project, we had accumulated 392 different model checkpoints. With numerous architectures to test, dozens of hyperparameters to sweep, and multiple on-device formats to support, models piled up quickly.
Staying organized and creating efficient workflows were the keys to success. We knew we needed to make this process easier—so we developed a set of command line tools to help.

Apple gave its Vision framework a major boost during WWDC 2019 by adding a lot of advancements. From expanding the number of classes (the term taxonomy is used for this) of its image classification requests to improvements in its face technology and text recognition requests, Apple is bringing in some really interesting improvements in computer vision for iOS.
