Articles and Thoughts

In the current era of digital revolution, there is a growing demand for high capacity, high bandwidth, low cost, error free, low power semiconductor memories that occupies minimal area. The existing memory types and technologies are being improved further and new types and technologies are being introduced.
ANPR object detection featured image
Object detection is a task in computer vision, which requires the algorithm to predict a bounding box with a class label for each Region of Interest (ROI) in an image. Anchor-based detector have ruled this space for a long time. Recently, anchor-free detectors have started to overtake anchor-based detectors due to their lower computational complexity and efficient detections.
Telecom tower in the distance
Telecom towers are considered critical infrastructure for ensuring nation-wide communications. Telecom Service Providers rely on these towers for hosting their antennas, power modules and other communication components. To ensure uninterrupted communication services
TensorFlow Serving of AI models with Celery Workers featured image
As AI applications proliferate across industries, it is important to develop strategies to deploy these applications with high performance and at scale. With the help of Python, Celery and TensorFlow Serving, it is possible to easily deploy Machine Learning models as well as send tasks asynchronously to multiple workers using the Celery task queueing mechanism. 
SoC re-spins can mostly be attributed to functional errors that are introduced during the RTL coding phase of the design process. Hardware simulations lower the risk of such design errors. However, given the increased size and complexity of designs, simulations are slow and often do not provide enough coverage to ensure the design is bug …

Image Stitching featured image
The input to image stitching is a pair of images which are treated as Train image and Query image. These two images will undergo a Registration process, which involves identifying features from the individual images. This process of image registration uses popular techniques like SIFT, ORB etc., which have been embedded in OpenCV libraries.
AI transforming driving photo
AI is increasingly becoming a part of our everyday lives, across different domains. Have you ever thought about the possibility of a custom driver and passenger experience based on your unique and personal needs? Will AI eliminate the need for us to drive altogether? Would it provide a convenient alternative to all our ‘on road woes’?
