In the meanwhile, last year (Dec 2015) we released our public beta.
Along with it we also released Voola Talky - the fastest, safest and easiest way to video chat. All chats are 10s long atmost and gets deleted once viewed. Here's a demo video - https://vimeo.com/150471711
Coming back to my origional question
which was, by no means, confrontational,
what is a component recognition system?
Are you trying to automatically decide
what kind of UI components to use in an app
based on some higher level inputs?
I could see that requiring a search
which could be done with a neural net.
Companies in adtech, e-commerce like Flipkart, Inmobi (perhaps their fraud detection unit), Amazon, Near (formerly adNear) have developed capabilities.
There's AI/ML work happening in computer vision happening at places like Grey Orange (disclaimer, I was formerly an employee there), Tonbo Imaging.
R&D within large conglomerates have lots of AI/ML like IBM Watson, Target, TCS Innovation Labs, 24/7, MSFT Research (Cognitive Linguistics etc), Xerox R&D
Startups like Gramaneer, SocialCops, Crayon Data are also working within AI/ML realm (though I am not aware, how deep they go into it).
University groups focusing on this in India from what I know are at IISc and IIIT Hyderabad and IIT B (post graduate).
The reason we don't have more hardware start-ups in India is because of a lack of know-how on building hardware products.
I'm curious why this should be. Prototyping hardware is becoming more accessible and manufacturing could always be done from China and other countries. So why is it difficult? What know-how are we talking about?
@abhaga Hey thanks for the information. We have seen this before and try to avoid taking quotes as much as possible. And since our focus is on articles, videos, podcasts, courses etc. also, we won't be short of content.
@khitchdee If I ever decide to implement this idea, I will make make it a free and open service. This means, I will make the project open source and other developers will be able to access the database, free of charge (through APIs). If someone else wants to implement this idea, feel free to implement it your way. My goal with this concept is to see customer support getting more transparent and I encourage a Whatever Works policy on it.
