You just got a new drone and you want it to be super smart! Maybe it should detect whether workers are properly wearing their helmets or how big the cracks on a factory rooftop are. In this blog post, we’ll look at the basic methods of object detection (Exhaustive Search, R-CNN, Fast R-CNN and Faster R-CNN) and try to understand the technical details of each model. The best part? We’ll do all of this without any formula, allowing readers with all levels of experience to follow along! Finally, we will follow this post with a second one, where we will take a deeper dive into Single Shot Detector (SSD) networks and see how this can be deployed… on a drone.

From In-Person to Virtual: Remotely Onboarding New SDRs

Article | July 31, 2020

In the year and a half that I’ve been an SDR team lead at Outreach, I’ve onboarded more than 90 SDRs across 13 different hiring classes.
