Three lines of code to implement a computer vision application using Tensorflow.js

Let’s see an easy way to implement a computer vision application using tensorflow.js!!!


What is TensorFlow.js?

What is the Tensorflow.js model?

TensorFlow.js Core, flexible low-level API for neural networks and numerical computation.

TensorFlow.js Converter, tools to import a TensorFlow SavedModel to TensorFlow.js.

The blazeface package finds facial boundaries and landmarks within an image.

<video width=640 height=480 autoplay muted id=”camera”></video>
<canvas width=640 height=480 id=”augmented_canvas”></canvas>
<video autoplay loop id=”movie” style=”visibility: hidden”>
<source src=”TensorFlowjs.mp4" type=”video/mp4"></source>
//load camera stream
const frame = document.getElementById("camera");
//load movie stream
const movie = document.getElementById("movie");;
//prepare canvas
const canvas = document.getElementById("augmented_canvas");
const draw = canvas.getContext("2d");
const result = await model.estimateFaces(frame, false);
//copy camera stream to canvas
draw.drawImage(frame, 0, 0, 640, 480);
//check if face is detected
if(result.length > 0)
for (let i = 0; i < result.length; i++) {
const start = result[i].topLeft;
const end = result[i].bottomRight;
const size = [end[0] — start[0], end[1] — start[1]];
//Render a rectangle over each detected face.
draw.drawImage(movie, start[0], start[1], size[0], size[1]);
