Anyone who tried building any type of real-time computer vision project had to work the Open Source Computer Vision library. It’s a great free for use (BSD license) tool which runs smoothly with a range of Deep Learning frameworks like TensorFlow, Torch/PyTorch and Caffe.

OpenCV on PLON

We use it often and from our own experience, we know that working with it can sometimes be demanding due to the difficulties during the installation process. That’s why we are very happy to launch the OpenCV template on PLON!  You can now use it right away without any installation process. Just start your project by choosing the correct template and you are ready to build you image recognition models on our platform.

You can also find an example on how to use OpenCV for finding circles in pictures in the explore section.

Happy computing!

Platform update!

Share on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

We have been working on a few new things and we are happy to launch them in our latest update.

  • We upgraded the terminal to butterfly 3.1.5 – it is prettier 😉
  • We added a “private share” option – you can now publish your project and send a private link to a friend or a co-worker
  • We changed the privileges in Python, R, Julia images – you now have sudo rights to “make” for compiling custom libraries – it should be much easier to compose your custom image with all language and system packages
  • We put the “publish” and “packages” buttons at the top, as you requested!
  • The dashboard has a “running on top” option that filters your projects – the ones that are still running are on top

We also fixed a few things

  • Our IDE slowed down when it had to much output – now huge logs from your machine learning algorithms won’t have such an effect
  • The “closed connection” error when launching terminal in Julia and R
  • The drag & drop file upload to IDE bugs

Our last update also had a few things that you might have missed:

  • There are all new cards in the Explore page with better search and filtering
  • We added a GitHub login option
  • There is now a public user profile if you want to showcase your projects
  • We added support for python 3.5 projects
  • Python 3.5 along with the SciPy
  • We updated the markdown support in readme files and public project page

We have also switched do the new Meteor 1.4 framework so it should be faster 🙂   If there is anything you would like to use on our platform just send us and email or contact us on our facebook page.

  • bug fix in opening web ssh terminal – the password from modal was not copied correctly 
  • tags autocomplete and dashboard loading were optimized

Future plans:

  • migrate from glusterFS to enterprise level NAS, I/O operations will be faster and we wiil be able to offer you more disk space for your projects
  • recently we have suspended access to Python 3 projects because it caused some problems, but now we are working to bring it back
  • we are working on new project templates for machine learning and computer vision, stay tuned!
