2022 Data + Vision AI Survey

How is the converging of Data and Vision AI shaping your career and daily work? Let's figure it out together to better understand how stakeholders participate and collaborate with each other in the current Data + Vision AI era.

πŸ‘‰ Check out the open survey. Your input will be greatly appreciated. We will share the survey result publicly with the community.

2022 Galaxy Summit

Our CEO Ping-Lin joined a panel in this year's Galaxy Summit with Taboola's Vice President Ning Ning Wu, Gojek's Vice President Pulkit Khanna, Canner Data's CEO Howard Chi and Eslite's Vice President Frank Zhang to talk about the challenges of unstructured data processing and Vision AI in the modern data stack.

Instill AI is dedicated to making unstructured visual data analysable because only analysable data can create value. We build the open-source VDP to streamline the end-to-end visual data processing across different stakeholders.

Open-source VDP - Standardise post-processing more easily

To get the model inference output in a standardised format, check our guidelines to create a model that inherits the corresponding post-processing task class instead of creating it from scratch.
Standardise post-processing for the classification task
Standardise post-processing for the detection task
If you like VDP, don’t hesitate to give us a ⭐ on GitHub and πŸ‘‰ join our community for Vision AI Enthusiasts.


Instill Cloud tutorial - How to create a detection pipeline in minutes

The tutorial shows how to use Instill AI Cloud service to create an object detection pipeline with a ready-to-use Vision AI model to process image data via HTTP requests.
Stay well!

Hey ,

What a busy month. Who's ready for the monthly update of February!

πŸš€ Product Updates

Open-source visual data Preparation (VDP)


We are so excited to announce the VDP project. It is an open-source tool to streamline the end-to-end visual data processing pipeline. In a nutshell, VDP can:
  • Ingest unstructured visual data from data sources such as data lakes or IoT devices;
  • Transform visual data to meaningful structured data representations by Vision AI models;
  • Load the structured data into warehouses, applications, or other destinations.
To build an open platform, we encourage all sorts of integrations and collaborations, and would like to learn your feedback and exchange ideas! If you like the project, don’t hesitate to give us a ⭐ on GitHub and πŸ‘‰ join our community for Vision AI Enthusiasts.


Instill Cloud - with human-readable pipeline name

Instead of using a randomly generated ID, create a pipeline with a human-readable name as the unique identifier.

Unstructured data tool to break the tech and team silos
To date, there isn’t any simple tool that can make one easily tap on the value of unstructured visual data. Read our article Missing piece in the modern data stack: visual data preparation on how visual data preparation streamlines visual data processing and eliminates the silos across different roles with a standardised framework.

That's all for now. Stay well!

Hey ,

Happy 2022 πŸŽ‰! It's a great way to start the new year with our product updates and interesting reads. Let's dive into the monthly update of January!

🍎 Community for Vision AI Enthusiasts

This is our biggest news! We are building a community where AI engineers, AI researchers, data engineers and data scientists share ideas of Vision AI, visual data preparation and MLOps:

  • πŸ’‘ Share articles, papers, useful tutorials and learn best practices about how to apply Vision AI to solve real-world problems
  • πŸ¦„ Find like-minded friends and partnerships for your projects
  • 😊 Help out each other with your domain expertise and use cases
  • ... and more!

πŸš€ Product Updates

Instill Cloud - with a brand new console

With Instill Cloud, you don't have to worry about managing AI infrastructure, scalability or latency. We provide
  • 🧰 CLI / SDKs tools for developers to integrate with existing data stack in minutes
  • ✨ A console for non-developers to start processing visual data without coding
  • 😊 Premium support from Instill AI team
Instill Cloud is currently in private alpha, working closely with early users to build the most effective tools for visual data preparation. If this sounds interesting to you, request early access here.
 


Instill CLI - operate in the terminal

Our official command line interface (Instill CLI) is an open-source tool that provides direct access to the APIs of Instill services. You can develop shell scripts to manage your resources. See on GitHub.
 


Better performance - support for both REST and gRPC

Besides RESTful API, we now support gRPC. With smaller message payloads and rigorous specifications, the gRPC API is built to achieve low latency and high throughput communication.

πŸ“– Monthly Digest

We have launched our official blog, where we publish useful guides and resources on visual data preparation, Vision AI and more! Check it out here.

Standardise visual data preparation
Wonder what is missing from the modern data stack? Wondering why Vision AI is still so inaccessible? Read our article Why Instill AI exists on how we bring Vision AI into the modern data stack by standardising visual data preparation.

And that's all for now. Stay well! I look forward to everything we will achieve together in 2022.
