In this Intel on AI podcast episode: Counting and identifying characteristics of crowds can provide organizations with a lot of valuable insights. Yet challenges like image distortion, density, and different camera angles can make analyzing images accurately very challenging. Ganes Kesari, Co-founder and Head of Analytics at Gramener, joins the Intel on AI podcast to discuss how Gramener has created a crowd counting solution that can overcome those challenges and produce a very rapid and accurate analysis of images. He talks about how Gramener has utilized this solution for several AI for good projects including a joint effort with Microsoft to count Antarctic penguin colonies. Ganes explains how their solution used convolutional neural networks (CNNs) using density-based estimations to deliver a more accurate penguin count than traditional manual counting methods. He also emphasized how benchmarking the solution on Intel AI technology and the Intel Optimization for PyTorch helped Gramener achieve comparable performance at a potentially lower computational cost. In addition to AI for good projects, Ganes also outlines how this same solution can also be utilized for other enterprise opportunities like drug discovery and how Gramener will continue to collaborate with Intel to provide better optimizations and performance for its customers.
