IBM PowerAI Vision

Enterprise-grade suite of tools for labeling raw datasets for training, creating, and deploying deep learning-based vision models

IBM PowerAI Vision 1.1.4

Released: 06/21/2019


IBM PowerAI Vision is a new generation video/image analysis platform that offers built-in deep learning models that learn to analyze images and video streams for classification and object detection.

PowerAI Vision includes tools and interfaces that allow anyone with limited skills in deep learning technologies to get up and running quickly and easily. And because PowerAI Vision is built on open source frameworks for modeling and managing containers it delivers a highly available platform that includes application life-cycle support, centralized management and monitoring, and support from IBM.

IBM Developer learning path

Getting started with PowerAI Vision
This learning path is designed for developers interested in quickly getting up to speed on what PowerAI Vision offers and how to use it. The learning path consists of step-by-step tutorials, deep-dive videos, and complete examples of working code.

Technology updates and features

PowerAI 1.1.4 builds upon previous releases and includes the following updates and features:

  • Action identification
    You can train models to identify actions in a video.
  • PowerAI Vision Non-production edition update
    This edition has updated functionality. The number of deployed and trained models is limited, but you can now export models.
  • Track usage metrics
    Administrators can track how many inferences have been run in PowerAI Vision.
  • PowerAI Vision trial version
    The functionality of the trial version has been updated. The number of deployed and trained models is limited, but you can now export models.
  • Inferencing for videos with Detectron models
    Detectron models now accept videos for inferencing; not just images.
  • View video inferencing results for Detectron models
    After a video inferencing completes, the annotated video plays.
  • Multiple improvements to the user interface

For all the details, see the What’s New topic in the IBM Knowledge Center.

Resources to get you started

Requesting enhancements for IBM PowerAI Vision

The IBM Request for Enhancement (RFE) tool is now available for you to submit formal enhancement requests to the PowerAI Vision development team. One of the benefits of using the RFE tool is that other clients can vote on submitted requirements, which helps IBM to prioritize requests.

Get started

Go here get started:

The RFE for PowerAI Vision pages are part of IBM Developer and require that you sign in with an IBM ID to submit or vote on a request. You should make sure that your IBM ID profile includes your current company and your email address to ensure that we can contact you if we have questions.

Search first

Once on the RFE page, click on the “Search” tab to view existing requests before you submit a new request. It is much more useful to vote for a previously submitted request than to submit a duplicate request.
