People have been dreaming about autonomous vehicles long before the car was even invented. Only a few decades after Henry Ford had started the mass production of low-cost cars, people wanted more once again.
As a result of optimizing and adding several new features, InvariMatch could now work in a cluster of machines and was much faster at processing search requests than before. It worked fine for the most part, but we still had to deal with occasional system failures.
As the video database of InvariVision grew, searching for similar videos in our system required more RAM and processing time. To solve this, we could’ve added more RAM. However, instead of doing that, we chose the cheaper and more practical alternative of unloading a portion of the RAM onto an SSD.
The InvariMatch system’s original architecture, where all video processing took place on one machine, worked well from the beginning. However, we understood that the system would fail under an increased load and thought about optimizing it. In 2016, one of our customers needed to install InvariMatch on a cluster of several machines. The system worked well at first, but after some time we faced several unexpected problems. We had to improve InvariMatch urgently, and these are the steps we took to achieve that.
Air survey is the most massive use of drones, but not the only one. Drones are used in industry, agriculture, architecture, people rescue, and other fields.
At the end of October 2018, the international counter-cybercrime campaign Group-IB sent a letter in which it expressed gratitude to InvariVision for the fruitful cooperation and high-quality video analysis.
Computer vision technologies are widely used in the present time, especially in robotics. Over the past few years, home robots that are designed to facilitate everyday life became very popular all over the world.Read more
Before the development of the global InvariVersum service the InvariMatch primary search engine has worked only with the direct links to video files. We added the ability to download videos from popular video hosting sites (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and others) to InvariVersum in May 2018.
In 2016, one of our customers needed to install InvariMatch in a cluster of several machines. The API and web interface were installed on only one machine, but processing involved all the machines in the cluster. The system worked well after installation, but in early 2017 we detected a problem.
