January 12, 2021 - Proof of Concept
After a good week dedicated to the precise annotation of photos and videos of a handful of single-use, sterile surgical items, we have a proof of concept model from the mock OR in our lab. Using dataloop.ai as the engine (thank you!), we used the annotated photos and videos to train a computer vision model. We were quite impressed with the result including identification of duplicate (gloves) and overlapping items (stapler on gloves).
