A python library built to empower developers to build applications and systems with self-contained Deep Learning and Computer Vision capabilities using simple
and few lines of code.
Built with simplicity in mind, ImageAI
supports a list of state-of-the-art Machine Learning algorithms for image prediction, custom image prediction, object detection, video detection, video object tracking
and image predictions trainings. ImageAI currently supports image prediction and training using 4 different Machine Learning algorithms
trained on the ImageNet-1000 dataset. ImageAI also supports object detection, video detection and object tracking using RetinaNet, YOLOv3 and TinyYOLOv3 trained on COCO dataset.
Eventually, ImageAI will provide support for a wider and more specialized aspects of Computer Vision including and not limited to image recognition in special environments and special fields.
New Release : ImageAI 2.0.2
- Option to state image size during custom image prediction model trainings
- Object Detection and Video Object detection now returns bounding box coordinates ('box points') (x1,y1,x2, y2) for each object detected in addition to object's 'name' and 'percentage probability'
- Options to hide 'percentage probability' and/or object 'name' from being shown in detected image or video
- Support for video object detection on video live stream from device camera, connected camera and IP camera
- Support for YOLOv3 and TinyYOLOv3 for all object detection and video object detection tasks.
- Video object detection for all input types (video file and camera) now allows defining custom functions to execute after each frame, each second and each minute of the video is detected and processed. Also include option to specify custom function at once video is fully detected and processed
- For each custom function specified, ImageAI returns the frame/seconds/minute/full video analysis of the detections that include the objects' details ( name , percentage probability, box_points), number of instance of each unique object detected (counts) and overall average count of the number of instance of each unique object detected in the case of second / minute / full video analysis
- Options to return detected frame at every frame, second or minute processed as a Numpy array.

ImageAI provides abstracted and convenient implementations of state-of-the-art Computer Vision technologies. All of ImageAI implementations and code can work on any computer system with moderate CPU capacity. However, the speed of processing for operations like image prediction, object detection and others on CPU is slow and not suitable for real-time applications. To perform real-time Computer Vision operations with high performance, you need to use GPU enabled technologies. Real-Time and High Performance Implementation
ImageAI uses the Tensorflow backbone for it's Computer Vision operations. Tensorflow supports both CPUs and GPUs ( Specifically NVIDIA GPUs. You can get one for your PC or get a PC that has one) for machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms' implementations. To use Tensorflow that supports the use of GPUs, follow the link below :
As a demonstration of what you can do with ImageAI, we have built a complete AI powered Photo gallery for Windows called IntelliP , using ImageAI and UI framework Kivy. Follow this Sample Applications link to download page of the application and its source code.
We also welcome submissions of applications and systems built by you and powered by ImageAI for listings here. Should you want your ImageAI powered developments listed here, you can reach to us via our Contacts below.
AI Practice Recommendations
For anyone interested in building AI systems and using them for business, economic, social and research purposes, it is critical that the person knows the likely positive, negative and unprecedented impacts the use of such technologies will have. They must also be aware of approaches and practices recommended by experienced industry experts to ensure every use of AI brings overall benefit to mankind. We therefore recommend to everyone that wishes to use ImageAI and other AI tools and resources to read Microsoft's January 2018 publication on AI titled "The Future Computed : Artificial Intelligence and its role in society ".
