An Embedded Computer Vision & Machine Learning Library
SOD is an embedded, modern cross-platform computer vision and machine learning software library that exposes a set of APIs for deep-learning, advanced media analysis & processing including real-time, multi-class object detection and model training on embedded systems with limited computational resource and IoT devices.
SOD was built to provide a common infrastructure for computer vision applications and to accelerate the use of machine perception in open source as well commercial products.
Designed for computational efficiency and with a strong focus on real-time applications. SOD includes a comprehensive set of both classic and state-of-the-art deep-neural networks with their pre-trained models. Built with SOD:
- Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for multi-class (20 and 80) object detection & classification.
- Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) for text generation (i.e. Shakespeare, 4chan, Kant, Python code, etc.).
- Decision trees for single class, real-time object detection.
- A brand new architecture written specifically for SOD named RealNets.
Cross platform, dependency free, amalgamated (single C file) and heavily optimized. Real world use cases includes:
- Detect & recognize objects (faces included) at Real-time.
- License plate extraction.
- Intrusion detection.
- Mimic Snapchat filters.
- Classify human actions.
- Object identification.
- Eye & Pupil tracking.
- Facial & Body shape extraction.
- Image/Frame segmentation.
Notable SOD features
