Visual Recognition with Core ML

Classify images with Watson Visual Recognition and Core ML. The images are classified offline using a deep neural network that is trained by Visual Recognition.

This project includes the QuickstartWorkspace.xcworkspace workspace with two projects:

  • Core ML Vision Simple: Classify images locally with Visual Recognition.
  • Core ML Vision Custom: Train a custom Visual Recognition model for more specialized classification.

Before you begin

Make sure that you have installed Xcode 9 or later and iOS 11.0 or later. These versions are required to support Core ML.

Getting the files

Use GitHub to clone the repository locally, or download the .zip file of the repository and extract the files.

Running Core ML Vision Simple

Identify common objects with a built-in Visual Recognition model. Images are classified with the Core ML framework.

  1. Open QuickstartWorkspace.xcworkspace in Xcode.
  2. Select the Core ML Vision Simple scheme.
  3. Run the application in the simulator or on your device.
  4. Classify an image by clicking the camera icon and selecting a photo from your photo library. To add a custom image in the simulator, drag the image from the Finder to the simulator window.

Tip: This project also includes a Core ML model to classify trees and fungi. You can switch between the two included Core ML models by uncommenting the model you would like to use in ImageClassificationViewController.

Source code for ImageClassificationViewController.

Running Core ML Vision Custom

This project trains a Visual Recognition model (also called a classifier) to identify common types of cables (HDMI, USB, etc.). Use the Watson Swift SDK to download, manage, and execute the trained model. By using the Watson Swift SDK, you don't have to learn about the underlying Core ML framework.

Setting up Visual Recognition in Watson Studio

  1. Log into Watson Studio. From this link you can create an IBM Cloud account, sign up for Watson Studio, or log in.
  2. After you sign up or log in, you'll be on the Visual Recognition instance overview page in Watson Studio.

Training the model

  1. In Watson Studio on the Visual Recognition instance overview page, click Create Model in the Custom box.

  2. If a project is not yet associated with the Visual Recognition instance you created, a project is created. Name your project 'Custom Core ML' and click the Create.

    Tip: If no storage is defined, click refresh.

  3. Upload each .zip file of sample images from the Training Images directory onto the data panel. Add the hdmi_male.zip file to your model by clicking the Browse button in the data panel. Also add the usb_male.zip, thunderbolt_male.zip, vga_male.zip file to your model.

  4. After the files are uploaded, select Add to model from the menu next to each file, and then click Train Model.

Copy your Model ID and API Key

  1. In Watson Studio on the custom model overview page, click your Visual Recognition instance name (it's next to Associated Service).
  2. Scroll down to find the Custom Core ML classifier you just created.
  3. Copy the Model ID of the classifier.
  4. In the Visual Recognition instance overview page in Watson Studio. Click the Credentials tab, and then click View credentials. Copy the api_key of the service.

Adding the classifierId and apiKey to the project

  1. Open the project in XCode.
  2. Copy the Model ID and paste it into the classifierID property in the ImageClassificationViewController file.
  3. Copy your api_key and paste it into the apiKey property in the ImageClassificationViewController file.

Downloading the Watson Swift SDK

Use the Carthage dependency manager to download and build the Watson Swift SDK.

  1. Install Carthage.

  2. Open a terminal window and navigate to the Core ML Vision Custom directory.

  3. Run the following command to download and build the Watson Swift SDK:

    carthage bootstrap --platform iOS
  4. In Xcode, use the Project Navigator to select the Core ML Vision Custom project.

  5. In the General settings tab, scroll down to Embedded Binaries and click the + icon.

  6. Click Add Other, navigate to the Carthage/Build/iOS directory, and select VisualRecognitionV3.framework.

Tip: Regularly download updates of the SDK so you stay in sync with any updates to this project.

Testing the custom model

  1. Open QuickstartWorkspace.xcworkspace in Xcode.

  2. Select the Core ML Vision Custom scheme.

  3. Run the application in the simulator or on a device.

  4. Classify an image by clicking the camera icon and selecting a photo from your photo library. To add a custom image in the simulator, drag the image from the Finder to the simulator window.

  5. Pull new versions of the visual recognition model with the refresh button in the bottom right.

    Tip: The classifier status must be Ready to use it. Check the classifier status in Watson Studio on the Visual Recognition instance overview page.

What to do next

Add another Watson service to the custom project with the Core ML Visual Recognition with Discovery project.
