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…

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…

Machine Learning Meetup KANSAI #7

As usual, HACARUS participated in the lastest Machine Learning Meetup Kansai, held on November 27th at LINE's Kyoto Offices. Unlike previous sessions, this last meetup of the year was held as a panel session including engineers from LINE, Rist, Hatena, HACARUS and moderated by LiveSense. In this post, Tanaka, and Sumie, two interns at our Kyoto headquarters that attended share their impressions. During the Panel discussion topics such as, "What algorithm should be selected for tasks with low certainty?" "Does…

HACARUS Kaggle Challenge #1

Hello, I'm Ippei Usami, a Data Scientist at Hacarus. In August of this year, Hacarus implemented the Internal Kaggle Challenge. To clarify, Kaggle is a Google-owned online platform that allows for the data scientists community to challenge themselves through competition, and share insights with the rest to further increased know-how. When we talk about the Internal Kaggle Challenge, we're talking about our an internal company-wide competition aimed to help our data scientists cultivate skills and increase creativity. Well, we've now finished…

Hacarus @ PyCon Taiwan 2019

This year Hacarus sponsored PYCON Taiwan as part of our ongoing engagement with with PYCON community, below follows a conference report written by Ninz Eclarin, one of our Engineers at the Manila Development Center.   I've been to some PyCon events in Asia before, but PyCon Taiwan strikes some awesome distinction. I mean, who can say no to a great selection of food and drinks provided at the venue? Unlimited MilkTea for the win! But aside from the awesome food, PyCon…
