A festive introduction to Computer Vision with Azure Custom Vision

Yesterday I had a wonderful time speaking at the Yearly Edu Summit (YES) – Fall 2021. My presentation was about how to build and deploy an object detection model in Azure Custom Vision to save Santa Claus. I talked about AI and Computer Vision, explained the concept of Transfer Learning, and showed how Azure Custom Vision works. I hope that everyone enjoyed my festive session and learned new skills!

The session

Santa Claus has been kidnapped! The Christmas elves have called upon you to save Santa Claus by developing an intelligent AI-app.

Azure Custom Vision is an Azure Cognitive Services service that lets you build and deploy your own image classification and object detection models. In this session, you will learn how to use the pre-trained machine learning models in Azure Custom Vision service, build and deploy your own object detection model and consume the model in a Python app.

What you will learn in this session:
  • Understand the concept of AI, Computer Vision and Transfer Learning.
  • Use the pretrained machine learning models in Azure Custom Vision.
  • Build and deploy an object detection model and consume the model in a Python app.
  • Build a “real-time” object detection app with Python and OpenCV.
