Danny Bickson and Amir Alush on building tools for managing, analyzing, and unlocking visual data.
Danny Bickson and Amir Alush are the creators of fastdup, a very impressive free tool for surfacing duplicates, anomalies, and leakage in visual data. In line with its name, it’s fast: fastdup is written in C++ and can handle millions of images easily. Using fastdup from Python is as simple as typing a single command. In this episode we discuss the state of tools for managing and working with computer vision data, plus the current and near-term roadmap of fastdup.
