Camera-based recognition systems are widely-spread in manufacturing, logistics, robotics as well as retail and the public sector. Image recognition systems enable measurement of object flows, surveillance and monitoring, quality control and inspection and also automatic check-in/out systems. Machine Learning and its advancements are the current state of the art for image classification on the software side.
Problem: These current technologies, however, typically require massive amounts of training data and an extensive training process before being able to put into the field. This is an insufficient approach for industrial applications that rely on repeatedly changing product portfolios or lack of pre-existing information-sets.
Solution: EPIC enables the user to show new items to the system which learns to recognize them immediately.
Few-Shot Learning for Highly-Flexible Object Detection
Our EPIC software framework capitalizes few-shot learning technologies for industry-grade applications providing highly-flexible recognition systems for data-efficient as well as adaptable usage.
- Let system learn new objects within seconds with just a handful of images
- Implementation as embedded camera application as well as a scaling cloud service
- Works with nearly every camera from most of all manufacturers
- Best fit for applications with (frequently) alternating product range
Machine learning based visual check-in/out systems are currently conquering inventory assessment as well as cash register systems. In comparison to classic technologies, there is no longer a need for scanning artificial markers, e.g. QR-codes or RFID tags. The training of novel objects could be implemented flexibly even from remote locations with hand-held devices. Consequently, novel products can be learned within seconds through cutting-edge few-shot learning in distributed computing scenarios.
The EPIC software framework is available as a software development kit (SKD) and web service for usage in different industries. In addition, we offer consulting services for few-shot learning technologies as well as tailored project-based solution development.
