Machine learning for making machines: Applying visual search to mechanical parts (Purdue University)

Purdue University: Machine learning for making machines: Applying visual search to mechanical parts. “Computer vision researchers use machine learning to train computers in visually recognizing objects – but very few apply machine learning to mechanical parts such as gearboxes, bearings, brakes, clutches, motors, nuts, bolts and washers. A team of Purdue University mechanical engineers has created the first comprehensive open-source annotated database of more than 58,000 3D mechanical parts, designed to help researchers apply machine learning to those parts in actual machines.”
