What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in applying computer vision technology to solve real-world problems. We will explore the latest and greatest developments in the field and how people are leveraging frameworks like Caffe, TensorFlow, OpenCV, etc. We meet once a month at GumGum's headquarters in Santa Monica. Each meeting begins with food/drink followed by a presentation and then a chance to network with attendees.

If you have ideas, suggestions, or want to give a presentation, please reach out to us!

How GumGum Serves its CV at Scale


Given the rapidly growing utility of computer vision applications, how do we deploy these services in high-traffic production environments to generate business value? Here we present GumGum’s approach to building infrastructure for serving computer vision models in the cloud. We’ll also demo code for building a car make-model detection server. Topics: -Multivitamin: an open-sourced Python framework for serving library-agnostic machine learning models -Containerization: packaging everything you need into a single portable artifact -CI/CD: automating builds and releases with Drone CI -Custom auto-scaling: using AWS Lambda to scale our infrastructure based on business metrics Speakers: Greg Chu is a Senior Computer Vision Scientist at GumGum, where he works on both the training and large-scale deployment of object detection and recognition models. These models are applied within GumGum's products for contextual advertising and sports sponsorship analytics. Greg has a background in biomedical physics. In his Ph.D research he developed tumor segmentation models to assess the clinical progression of patients in FDA clinical drug trials. Corey Gale is a Senior DevOps Engineer at GumGum. He works on automating cloud infrastructure for highly-scalable systems using open-source technologies. With his background in Robotics Engineering, Corey is a believer that through automation, anything is possible. He is also obsessed with process (measure all the things!), cost-reduction and entrepreneurship (Corey actually created a food delivery app in 2012, well before they became mainstream).
