You can install FilterBox and get it running in as little as 10 minutes if you’re familiar with Kubernetes and Helm.

The Genesis of FilterBox

FilterBox emerged from a pressing challenge: making the complex world of computer vision accessible to everyone. Our journey started with a simple problem: how do we transition advanced machine learning models from development to real-world use? Inspired by the efficiency of containers in the world of technology, particularly in areas like DevOps and cloud-native computing, we envisioned a similar solution tailored specifically for computer vision.

 

Simplifying Computer Vision

We saw an abundance of point solutions in the market—companies dedicated to solving specific computer vision problems individually. While this might seem like progress, it often led to inefficiencies systemically by not reusing shared components across use cases. For instance, various image recognition problems required similar preprocessing steps and algorithms. Many of these problems shared fundamental similarities in their underlying mechanisms, making the fragmented approach less efficient.

Empowering Users

FilterBox’s standout feature is its simple integration and accessibility of visual applications. Unlike traditional solutions fixated solely on machine learning models, FilterBox caters to users who need to extract valuable insights from visual data without diving into the complexities of machine learning algorithms. Acting as a bridge between users and technology, FilterBox abstracts away the technical intricacies, empowering a broader audience to harness the power of computer vision effortlessly.

 

Driving Efficiency  

Efficiency and innovation are at the heart of FilterBox’s mission. FilterBox offers rapid, accurate decision-making capabilities in real-time by envisioning scenarios where manual visual inspection creates bottlenecks. Trained filters within FilterBox often outperform humans in specific tasks, enhancing operational efficiency and unlocking new possibilities for automation and productivity.

Harnessing Edge Deployments

A pivotal breakthrough in FilterBox’s development was its embrace of edge deployments, leveraging Kubernetes-based systems and cloud-native principles. This strategic decision brought significant advantages, including improved observability, reliability, and availability. Edge deployments involve placing computing resources closer to the data source, ensuring low latency, data privacy, and optimized resource management—a game-changer for industries requiring real-time insights and responsiveness.
