Object detection with Turi Create and augmentation using ARKit


Over the past few years, the use of Machine Learning to solve complex problems has been increasing. Machine learning (ML) is a field of computer science that gives computer systems the ability to “learn” (i.e. progressively improve performance on a specific task) with data, without being explicitly programmed.

Last year was a good year for the freedom of information, as titans of the industry Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, Apple and even Baidu open-sourced their ML frameworks. In this blog, let’s explore a framework provided by Apple named Turi Create. Continue reading

Proxy Routing in Angular 4 Applications

This blog intends to deal and simplify routing in Angular 4 applications in both development and production environment. While working on routing in Angular 4 applications, we often face some of the following challenges:

  • Finding a solution to the problem of cross-origin issues in Angular development environment
  • Separating routing configurations and APIs servers URLs from the code, making the application more robust and maintainable
  • Finding a generic solution where frequent changing of API URLs (due to deployment on different servers, let’s say for the purpose of load balancing) do not force you to modify and change the code
  • Servers where the APIs deployed do not appear in your code at all

Firebase cloud messaging in iOS

Cloud messaging or push notification is one of those “topics” that gets left out. Primarily because we are too busy beautifying the app, or working on a new feature, or we think it isn’t a big deal.
