Human Pose Estimation Experiment

Today's blog will be delivered by Yoshinobu Ogura, Data Scientist at HACARUS. Hello, my name is Yoshinobu Ogura, and I am a HACARUS Data Scientist. In this article, I will be using deep learning to estimate human skeletal structure - known as "Human Pose Estimation". About Human Pose Estimation The final goal aim of this article is to create a baseline for Human Pose Estimation. Human Pose Estimation is a technique to model the human skeleton from images, which is…

AI Operating On CPU

SPECTRO CORE

A toolkit for your EDGE visual inspection use cases. With a focus on execution speed at the EDGE, we have created a native  library supporting SPECTRO's main inspection algorithms. The ability to integrate SPECTRO's inspection features with industrial equipment has been a frequent request by our customers - today we are excited to announce that this feature is now available! CPU only – no GPU required By using SPECTRO CORE, system integrators or machine manufacturers can easily execute SPECTRO’s core inspection…

Advanced Applications of Sparse Modeling for Image Processing – Deficit Interpolation, Anomaly Detection, and Super-Resolution

This article originally appeared in Japanese on Codezine, below follows HACARUS translation of the same: This series of articles is for engineers who want to jump into machine learning and who have experience with deep learning and machine learning. The focus will be on a technique called "sparse modeling" - where you can perform analysis without large amounts of data. In the last article, image reconstruction using dictionary learning was covered. This time, three advanced methods will be introduced: deficit…

Sparse Modeling Study Sessions: A Convex Optimization Approach to LASSO – What is the Convex Optimization Problem?

In this article, Takahiro Suzuki, a data scientist at HACARUS explains the convex optimization problem covering all the basic terms you need to understand it. 0. Introduction My name is Takahiro Suzuki, data scientist in the HACARUS Tohoku team. As mentioned in a previous blog,  HACARUS has started study sessions to learn more about sparse modeling as part of our everyday business. The Sparse Modeling Study Sessions are contributing to the promotion of mutual knowledge exchange among HACARUS members -…

A peek inside our Sparse Modeling Study Sessions

With a combined total of more than 30 full-time employees and interns, our data science team continues to grow, each bringing unique expertise and perspectives. Sparse modeling, which HACARUS core technology is built on, is so diverse that individual differences in knowledge and skills have emerged within our team. In order to complement each other, we have started study sessions to learn more about sparse modeling as part of our everyday business we call these "The Sparse Modeling Study Sessions"…

Evaluation of Human Part Segmentation using the Jetson Nano Developer Kit

In this article, Daisuke Takahashi, a data scientist at HACARUS explains the process of Human Part Segmentation using a high performance edge device; the Jetson Nano Developer Kit.   What is the Jetson Nano Developer Kit? The Jetson Nano is a purpose built edge device by NVIDIA that allows for GPU based operations in a light and cost effective package. Much like a standard computer it allows you to run various applications. For this use case we installed a Linux…

Making the Leap from Established to Start-Up: What to Expect

Over the past 18 months, we at HACARUS have focused on expanding our organization to  keep up with market demand for our services. It is no longer a rare occasion to welcome a new member from a major corporation - rather it is becoming commonplace. In this blog Tomomi Kikumoto HACARUS’ HR manager, discusses the experience with some recent members of the engineering organization.  _________ Tomomi: Today the focus will be on 3 HACARUS members who are originally from major…

Greeting a New Member @KYOTO HQ

As part of our ongoing work to integrate the latest industrial robots with HACARUS AI technologies we've just taught our resident Mitsubishi Electric Robot to recognize humans, and to respond respectfully to a human bow - with a bow ! Check it out below: https://vimeo.com/397903246
