Developing an object detector solution with Azure Custom Vision .NET SDK

Azure Custom Vision is a cognitive service that lets you build, deploy, and improve image classifiers that adapt to your needs without a background in AI advanced techniques.

One of Custom Vision functionalities is Object Detection, which both identifies a target element in a picture and returns its location (coordinates) in the image. This is particularly useful in scenarios where there are several objects but only one of them is relevant.

In this presentation, the Custom Vision service will be described, with focus on how to deliver an object detection model by using the .NET SDK. This model can be accessed by applications either in online (by using the Prediction API) or offline modes (by exporting it to a platform, such as TensorFlow), and some cases will be demonstrated in a mobile application.

Microsoft MVP

I'm a Microsoft MVP in Developer Technologies and AI. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Engineering Informatics at Tomas Bata University in Zlin, Czech Republic.

I've been developing .NET apps for +10 years. I find C# a really powerful language which allow us to create different kinds of software. I focus on mobile apps (Xamarin), cloud computing (Azure) and AI.

I enjoy sharing my knowledge with others.
