Machine Learning Posts - Digest 01

Whenever I get time, I am going to post articles on machine learning that I read during a week. I thought today is a good day to start doing it.

  1. Using machine learning to index text from billions of images

Summary: The article describes how Dropbox built a system to index images based on the text in those images. Dropbox used TensorFlow.

  1. Rosetta: Understanding text in images and videos with machine learning

Summary: From the article - “[Rosetta] extracts text from more than a billion public Facebook and Instagram images and video frames (in a wide variety of languages), daily and in real time, and inputs it into a text recognition model that has been trained on classifiers to understand the context of the text and the image together.” Facebook used Caffe2 for model building.

  1. Open Sourcing TransmogrifAI: Automated Machine Learning for Structured Data

Summary:Last month SalesForce open sourced their AutoML TransmogriAI library built on Scala and SparkML. This post describes it and shows the workflow reproduced below. AutoML or automated machine learning is a big deal. I will soon write a post about available solutions.
