What Is the Future AI Image Segmentation?


Exploring the Potential of AI Tools in Image Segmentation and Object Recognition

At PeakActivity, we are constantly exploring new and innovative ways to enhance the experiences of our clients and customers. One area that we are particularly excited about is the intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and image segmentation and object recognition. In this blog post, we will explore some of the most exciting AI tools that we are currently exploring, as introduced by our Head of Custom & Emerging Technology, Rob Petrosino.

Introducing the Segment Anything Model (SAM) by Meta, a tool that allows users to select, cut away, and identify objects in images and videos in just fractions of a second. SAM goes beyond traditional segmentation by automatically segmenting everything in an image and even creating valid masks for ambiguous prompts. This new tool has various impressive use cases, from identifying objects in medical images to enhancing e-commerce product visualization.

SAM's efficient segmentation capabilities, along with its ease of use, make it an ideal tool for those who are starting their machine learning journey. We are encouraging our partners to ask questions and explore the features of SAM within their business.

Beyond Meta AI's Segmentation to Zero-Shot Generalization Capabilities

Another tool that Rob Petrosino reviewed was New Meta AI, which is capable of performing tasks traditionally handled by machine learning engineers. The system's segmentation tool can take prompts from other systems and identify objects in images based on eye tracking, bounding box prompts, and other text prompts. However, the system does not label objects in new datasets.

The zero-shot generalization capabilities of New Meta AI allow for the segmentation of unfamiliar objects, while the segmentation tools can quickly and efficiently segment out different dogs, sticks, or backgrounds. 

The video version of the model runs on a bi-directional data stream, allowing for interactive tracking and repeated analysis. The model is highly efficient and can run cloud systems on key frames of video, and the code is open-source on Github. All of these aspects including prompts supported by the model, the data it was trained on, the time required to train the model, and the size of the model parameters can be found on the Segment Anything website.

Overall, New Meta AI's segmentation and zero-shot generalization capabilities open up new possibilities for AI-powered image segmentation and object recognition, especially in industries such as healthcare and manufacturing.
