Give teachable machine a whirl if you're into that sort of thing.

Wha... Glitch? P5.js? Is Teachable Machine targeted at school kids?

Kids these days have the best toys. (With the possible exception of erector sets--those were pretty cool.)

I an curious in your testing with the drill indoors what would happen if you took the same camera outdoors. Would the drill still be detected or is Neuarala detection performance specific to the FOV the detector was trained in? In addition, once you train a detector model can the detector be moved to other Neurala equipped cameras or does each camera have to be trained independently?

Performance is not specific to the field of view that it was trained in, you could take it outside and it would still detect the object as long as you held it within ~5' of the camera. Each camera is trained independently of each other and cannot be moved to another so if you want an object trained on another camera you have to do the training again.

Has IPVM compared these analytics to utilising Microsoft Cognitive services?

Jennifer, thanks for your first comment. For others, here is the product page: Cognitive Services—APIs for AI Developers | Microsoft Azure

We have not. In general, we focus on testing AI offerings that are easy for end users and integrators to deploy without any development effort, since that is the most common use case.

That said, Azure's offerings or rival ones from Google or Amazon might be better for those actually developing their own services.
