How To Avoid Bias In Computer Vision Models

There are two different ways to think about algorithmic bias, and they are complementary to one another. The first being the social and ethical side, and second being the more

How to Train Computer Vision Models on Aerial Imagery

Aerial imagery are images taken from aircrafts like drones, planes, and helicopters. With these images we can train a model to detect objects like fires, buildings, solar panels, rooftops, maritime

How to Safely Install OpenCV on the Mac M1

Installing OpenCV on the M1 safely is difficult because the M1 operates on an arm64 architecture and most of your python libraries are compiled for amd64. Open this guide to avoid your otherwise inevitable demise.
