But let’s look on the bright side. When it comes to applying deep machine learning to image detection, developers use Python along with open-source libraries like OpenCV image detection, Open Detection, Luminoth, ImageAI, and others. This tool is provided by Microsoft and offers a vast variety of AI algorithms that developers can use and alter. Typically, Image Classification refers to images in which only one object appears and is analyzed. 2405-2418, June, 2012. 73 - 83, 2006.
