AI news of the week: Tensorflow Object Detection API and Free Online Data Science Books


Tensorflow Object Detection API

Summary: Creating accurate machine learning models capable of localizing and identifying multiple objects in a single image remains a core challenge in computer vision. The TensorFlow Object Detection API is an open source framework built on top of TensorFlow that makes it easy to construct, train and deploy object detection models. At Google we’ve certainly found this codebase to be useful for our computer vision needs, and we hope that you will as well.

The title says they are “mathematics” textbooks but there’s tons of material for data scientists (who do lots of math) too.

Particularly relevant: probability, statistics, linear algebra, graph theory, inference, learning algorithms, convex optimization, statistical signal processing, and more!
