Microsoft announced that Lobe, a machine learning tool that enables users to write deep learning and AI models quickly and without code, is now available with image classification support in tools that they develop. Essentially, this means that users can import images of the things that Lobe is supposed to recognize, and the free app will automatically select the correct machine learning architecture to begin training a machine learning model. The company says it will be publicly previewing the app today and downloading it for free on Windows or Mac computers.
“Lobe supports image classification today, but plans to expand to other model and data types in the future,” said Jennifer Langston, who writes on Microsoft research and innovation, in a blog entry. Lobe’s visual interface allows developers to create apps with features like reading handwriting, recognizing hand gestures, listening to music, and more. You can download Lobe for Windows and Mac from Flap side.
Microsoft acquired the AI-focused company Lobe back in 2018 as part of its strategy and vision from CEO Satya Nadella to incorporate AI into everything the company makes. Lobe helps developers and people with no data science experience to quickly apply deep learning and AI models to tools that can be used in industries such as healthcare or agriculture. Lobe leverages AI research, global infrastructure, and developer tools from the technology giant.
According to Microsoft, Lobe uses “open source machine learning and transfer learning architectures to train custom machine learning models on the user’s own machine.” The company claims the data is kept private and does not require an internet connection or logins. With the support of image classification, users can simply import images of the things they want to train Lobe on and the training will be performed automatically. It also complements Azure AI’s services for customers who want to take advantage of cloud computing capabilities, the company said.
