Picarus is a Computer Vision and Machine Learning web service and library for large-scale visual analysis. Behind the scenes it uses Hadoop/HBase and the front end provides an easy to use REST interface and web app. This is a broad project and is under active development, contact us if you are interested in using it or would like to take part in the development. Visit https://github.com/bwhite/picarus/ for the source.
Picarus is developed by Dapper Vision, Inc. (Brandyn White and Andrew Miller). We are PhD students at UMD and are interested in Computer Vision, Web-Scale Machine Learning, HCI, Cryptography, and Social Networks.
