This artificial intelligence (AI) & machine learning (ML) workshop is brought to you by BLOCK71 and AWS!

About this Event

Computer vision technology can be costly for a startup to pick up. In this workshop, we have handpicked two demos using Amazon Rekognition for you to get a go at Machine Learning without investing too much time or funds.

Amazon Rekognition is a deep learning-based image and video analysis service. It will allow you to detect faces in an image or video, find facial landmarks such as the position of eyes, and detect emotions such as happy or sad in near real-time or in batches without management of infrastructure or modeling.

In this workshop, you will analyze a 30-second clip of an Ultimate Frisbee game. Analyzing video automatically extracts rich metadata, which can be used to create a searchable video library, perform content moderation, or provide personalized VIP experiences.

Also, analyze an image and then compare it to other images to see if the faces are the same.
