SuperAnnotate, a computer vision platform, partners with with open-source to spread visual ML – TechCrunch

Not supernote, A NoCode computer vision platform, is partnering with Opencv, A non-profit organization that has built a large collection of open-source computer vision algorithms. The move means startups and entrepreneurs will be able to build their AI model and allow cameras to detect objects using machine learning. Supernote has so far raised $ 3M from investors including Point 3 Capital, Fathom Capital and Berkeley Skydeck Fund.

The OpenCV AI Kit (OAK), an AI-powered computer vision platform for data scientists and annotation teams, will give users access to its platform, as well as start a computer vision course on creating AI models. SuperAnnotate will also install the camera of the AI ​​kit to detect objects using machine learning and OAK users will get a $ 200 credit for installing its system on its platform.

OAK is a multi-camera device that can perform computer vision and 3D perception tasks such as identifying objects, counting people, and measuring distances. Since launchingOf these, around 11,000 cameras have been distributed.

AI kits have so far been used to identify drones and security applications, agricultural vision sensors or even COVID-related detection devices (for example, to let people know if someone has worn a mask) Have used.

Tigran Petrosian, co-founder and CEO at Supernote, said in a statement that: “Computer vision and smart camera applications are gaining momentum, yet many do not have the relevant AI expertise to implement. With OAK kits and supernotes, one can finally build their own smart camera system, with no coding experience. “

Supernot’s competitors include Datalup, Labelbox, Appen and Hive.
