Let’s get started on the Puppy Challenge journey!
To complete this challenge (and the rest of the workshop) please follow the instructions. The buttons which you need to press are circled in red and have our fun pet, Monty, hanging on as well. If you get lost, please ask your teacher or raise your hand in the chat.
To understand more about what Amazon Rekognition can do, let’s try the out-of-the box demonstrations. Let’s try a celebrity challenge first.
To begin, type Amazon Rekognition in the AWS Management Console search bar.
You are now on the Amazon Rekognition homepage. Amazon Rekognition can detect specific people, celebrities and even objects from photos you upload.
On the Celebrity recognition page, you will find this picture of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos. If you look to the right, you can see that AWS Rekgonition has identified that the person in the photo is Jeff Bezos with 100% confidence.
Rekognition automatically labels objects, concepts and scenes in your images, and provides a confidence score.
Get a complete analysis of facial attributes, including confidence scores.
Rekognition automatically detects and extracts text in your images.
Amazon Rekognition can automatically detect Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as face covers, head covers, and hand covers on persons in images.
Try the Video analysis demonstration to see similar object detection features in videos. You can also expand this technology to detect objects in live video streams.
Fantastic! How amazing is the Cloud?
The steps above show how Amazon Rekognition and the other AWS machine learning services are pretrained to detect certain things. But what should you do if you want to find objects and scenes that are unique to your own business?
After today, you will know how to create you very own model that can detect whatever you want in a photo or video, like a puppy!
