Machine learning for making machines: Applying visual search to mechanical parts

First comprehensive open-source annotated database of more than 58,000 3-D mechanical parts, designed to help researchers apply machine learning to those parts in actual machines.

We want to be able to point a camera at a real-world part, and have the computer tell us everything about that part or design

… Could even happen through augmented reality glasses; you could have your company’s entire visual catalog instantly at your fingertips and learn how to fix things or order parts.

Researchers now have published open-source database, inviting computer vision and machine learning researchers to access it and create their own experiments.
