There are many metrics via which one can measure the performance of a model. One possible measure is the mean absolute percent error. It is calculated by taking the mean of the absolute value of the actual values minus the predictions divided by the actual values. Another measure of performance is the...

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 algorithm...

You may already know that Algorithmia hosts scalable deep learning models. If you are a developer, you’ve seen how easy it is to run over 3,000 microservices through any of our supported languages and frameworks. But sometimes it’s nice just to play with a simple demo. The Deep Fashion microservice...

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. This algorithm can be used in a variety of fields, such as user experience testing, neuroscience research,...

Whenever we look at a photo or watch a video, we always notice certain things over others. This could be a person’s face, or a sports car, or even a symbol that is located in the corner of a video. SalNet is an algorithm that automates the process of finding the salient regions of an image using deep...
