Our first application Babbly goes into private beta
On December 21, 2019
We are proud to announce that our first application Babbly has entered private beta testing today. Babbly is a mobile application that teaches users a new language in a completely different way - using only your camera. We could describe in detail how the app works, but it is best if you watch the video demonstrating the app in action:
Babbly can currently translate over 400 objects in 9 different languages, including Croatian. While most apps use on-device AI models, we have taken a different approach. The Babbly AI model is run completely in the cloud on GPU instances with model results exposed through the API. The app uses the API to send and fetch bounding box locations, object names and their translations. Cloud-based models enable seamless model upgrades and the use of more complex and thus more accurate models due to the high performance of GPU hardware. Furthermore, on-device models have a strong drawback in the form of heavy battery consumption and this is also solved by using the cloud models.
We have put a lot of effort into making the app return results in real-time. Camera frames sent over the network are resized to a very small size and additionally compressed so the total upload network traffic is minimized to around 80kB/s.
If you want to partake in the beta testing, please leave your email here. We’re also open to feedback which you can send us using our contact page.
In previous posts from this series, we discussed how we formatted UWSGI and Python logs in JSON format. We still have one important production component left: the Nginx server. This blog post will describe how the Nginx logging module works, and showcase a simple logging configuration where Nginx logger is configured to output JSON logs.
What is the point in collecting logs and metrics if you don’t use them? In this blog post, we will build upon our previous blog post and connect Fluent Bit log collectors to Elasticsearch along with a basic setup and comparison of Kibana and Grafana, tools often used for visualizing logs
There is a great deal of overlap between the fields of statistics and data science, to the point where many definitions of one discipline could just as easily describe the other. While this is true, there are also many differences between them. Why is statistics important and what is its connection to data science? What is data science? What are their similarities and differences? Let’s try to understand it better at least on a basic level without too much going into subtle details.
