It’s amazing how much more accessible this stuff has become.


Agreed! It has been very interesting to learn about and get into. Amazing what can be done with it.


A lot of this post still goes over my head though 😄

I feel the same still at times. It has been a lot to absorb. Very interesting but deep topic to get into. I have been learning much as I go along but there is still so much more to learn!


How is it performance wise? What kind of specs are for your setup?


Hello! I have an Intel Nuc that contains an Intel Core i5 running Ubuntu (64 bit) 16.04 with a 1 TB drive. With this, I have been using the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick and a GeChic touchscreen. Performance wise, I am not sure what I can really say for this. For still images, it takes a few seconds to run when I have only a few images. I have not run it on a massive dataset yet. With a live camera feed it is relatively quick, second or so, to detect a person and save a screen shot. The only issue I had was with too much light pollution, which made it hard for the camera to realize a person was present.
