Topic: AI for beginners from a beginner – Open Source AI for Generalists

Recently I saw a demo of AI technology that could count the number of people in a security camera video feed.  I thought it was pretty cool and started Googling “how did they do that?”. First I came across scientific papers that require you to have an advanced math degree to understand, but soon I stumbled across a whole other class of open source projects that are pre-packaged and ready to go with zero math.   If you can handle the level of complexity roughly equivalent to compiling a Linux program from source, you can also start using powerful AI today.

I’m sure it will be interesting to many of your members.
