What is Image Recognition?

There are a lot of applications of image recognition, from determining the types of weeds in your field to the color of your soybeans as they are sorted, but we are going to focus on faces today.

As we have been going full fledge on promoting the launch of Code Camps: AI in a Day in Manitoba, we’ve learned that we need to show what image recognition is! So we’re going to break it down for you and since we’re posting this on social media we know you have used image recognition, but here is a 10 second taste.

Step 1: Submit a ‘reference’ picture  Step 2: Submit a second picture (e.g. multiple people, wearing a hat, draw on a mustache)

  • It’s the technology underlying auto-tagging who else is mentioned in your picture, but it has a ton of really cool applications from unlocking your phone, to pulling up the sales reports for your region to auto-calculating paychecks based on hours worked on remote work sites to bio-security…. That and it’s super fun to play with!
