Article Summary

February 29, 2024

The newest version of LandingLens introduces more Model Size options for Custom Training. The Model Size refers to the architecture and number of parameters used to train the model. 

We’ve added a third model size option to Object Detection projects: RtmDet-[9M]. This option leads to the fastest training and inference times, when compared to the other two model sizes. This model size uses the RTMDet architecture and 9 million parameters. 

Additionally, we've changed the Model Size options for Segmentation projects:

  • XCiT small-[26M]: Train and run inferences faster. Uses the XCiT architecture and 26 million parameters.
  • XCiT medium-[26M]: Capture more complex patterns in the training data. Uses the XCiT architecture and 26 million parameters.

For detailed information about creating custom-trained models in LandingLens, go to Custom Training.

February 21, 2024

The latest version of LandingLens features a redesigned process for Custom Training! You now have greater control over the dataset and splits used during the training process. Additionally, the user interface now guides you more clearly through configuring the training settings.

All of the transforms and augmentations from the previous design are still available. Additionally, the new process does not impact any models you’ve already developed.

The following sections highlight some new key points in Custom Training. To learn all the details, go to Custom Training.

New Custom Training Interface

Select a Dataset

In previous versions of LandingLens, the Custom Training process would automatically apply to the dataset currently in the Build tab. Or, you could go to the Dataset Snapshots module, select a dataset, and then start Custom Training.

When you click Custom Training in the new process, you’re now first prompted to select a dataset. This speeds up the process and shows you all of your options in one place.

Select a Dataset

Set Up Splits

If you choose to run Custom Training on the dataset currently in the Build tab, and those labeled images don’t have splits assigned to them yet, you can assign splits during Custom Training.

You can assign splits based on all images in the dataset or based on each class.

Set Up or Review Splits

Train Multiple Models for the Same Dataset at Once

You can now configure multiple sets of training parameters for the same dataset at once. This is helpful when you want to see how changing a parameter–like the number of epochs–will affect the model. By setting up all training parameters at once, you don’t need to go through the Custom Training process multiple times.

To add another set of training parameters, click Add Another Model or Duplicate.

Add a Set of Training Settings

January 30, 2024

In this release, we’ve introduced three significant updates to streamline your computer vision model creation process.

First, we’ve made it much easier to compare and analyze model performance. All models for a project are now centralized on a new page called Models, which allows you to compare model performance across different datasets.

Second, we’ve updated Segmentation projects to offer more flexibility and faster inference speeds.

And finally, we’ve redesigned the labeling experience for Object Detection, Segmentation, and Classification projects. 

Keep reading to get more details about these updates!

Compare Models

You can now quickly and easily compare model performance across multiple datasets in a single project.

All trained models for a project now appear in a table on a new tab called Models. By default, you can see how each model performed on its Train, Dev, and Test sets. You can also add existing dataset snapshots—or filtered versions of them—to the table. This matrix empowers you to quickly compare model performance on a variety of datasets. From here, you can also deploy models.

Comparing model performance on the Models tab isn't a required step in LandingLens, but it's a useful technique for identifying your most accurate models. For full details, go to Compare Models.

Compare Model Performance Across Different Datasets on the Models Page

Note:
Due to the unique nature of Visual Prompting, the Models tab is not available for Visual Prompting projects.

Impacts to Cloud Deployment

We anticipate that most users will want to compare mode performance in the Models tab before choosing which model to deploy. Because of this, the Cloud Deployment process now starts from the Models tab. After comparing the models in the table, simply click the Rocket (deploy) icon for the model you want to deploy. The rest of the deployment process is the same as before. 

Deploy Models from the Models Page

We’ve made two additional changes to Cloud Deployment to ensure more consistent comparisons between endpoints:

  • Once a model is deployed to an endpoint, that model can’t be swapped for another.
  • The Confidence Threshold of a deployed model can’t be changed.

Updated Segmentation Projects

As part of this release, the Segmentation projects in your LandingLens organization have new capabilities, including:

  • You can upload up to 10,000 images to a Segmentation project.
  • When using Custom Training for Segmentation projects, you can now resize images to be up to 1024x1024px.
  • Running inference on models trained via Custom Training will now be faster.
  • Updated Model Size options in Custom Training. Keep reading for more information.

Updated Model Sizes in Custom Training

When using Custom Training, you can now choose from these two model sizes:

  • FastViT-[14M]: Train and run inferences faster. Uses the FastViT transformer architecture and 14 million parameters.
  • SegFormer-[14M]: Capture more complex patterns in the training data. Training and running inferences will take longer. Uses the SegFormer semantic segmentation framework and 14 million parameters.
Model Sizes for Segmentation

Redesigned Labeling Experience

In this release, the label view now has a brand-new look, offering a more modern and intuitive interface while maintaining all existing tools and functionalities for Object Detection, Segmentation, and Classification. For more information, go to Labeling.

Here’s what you can expect the label view page to look like for each project type:

Object Detection

New Labeling Experience for Object Detection


Segmentation

December 19, 2023: Train Multiple Models at Once

When one model is training, you can now start training another model! This is helpful if you want to compare performance between multiple datasets or model training settings. Training multiple models at once is sometimes called "parallel training".

Parallel training is available for both the Fast Training and Custom Training methods.

Let’s say you want to build two models for the same dataset using Custom Training. You want one model to use 30 epochs and the other to use 40 epochs. You can start training the second model without waiting for the first one to complete. This capability empowers you to run experiments faster.

To see the status of a model, click the Models drop-down menu. Models that are still training have the status In Progress.

Two Models Are Training at the Same Time

Bug Fixes

In previous versions of LandingLens, training a Visual Prompting model sometimes led to inaccurate predictions and this error message:

“Model training failed. Please try training a new model.”

This bug has been fixed, and Visual Prompting models now train correctly. 

December 4, 2023

We have great news for our LandingEdge and Docker users! As of today, you no longer need to deploy a model via Cloud Deployment (or by generating a deployable version of a model) to use that model in LandingEdge and Docker. 

All models trained starting today will automatically be deployable via LandingEdge and Docker! Each model has its best Confidence Score. To see all models that can be deployed from a project, go to Deploy and click Deployable Models.

Deployable Models

If you want to use a different Confidence Score for a model, or if you don't see your model in the Deployable Models table, you can either deploy it via Cloud Deployment or use the following procedure to generate a deployable model:

  1. Open the project with the model you want to deploy.
  2. Click Models to open the Models panel.
    Open the Models Panel
  3. Select the model you want to deploy from the Model drop-down menu.
  4. Use the Confidence Threshold slider to select the Confidence Score you want the model to have.
  5. Click Deploy.
    Deploy the Model after Selecting a Confidence Score
  6. Select Self-Hosted Deployments.
  7. Click Generate Deployable Model.
    Generate a Deployable Model
    LandingLens creates a deployable model and opens to the Deployable Models table on the Deploy page.
Note:
Models from Visual Prompting and the Classic Flow use a separate deployment workflow and don’t display in the Deployable Models table.

November 21, 2023

In this newest release of LandingLens, we’ve added more ways to manage your datasets. Here are the highlights:

  • You can now save “snapshots” of all or some images in a project, and train models based on those groups of images. You can have multiple snapshots in each project!
  • You can add tags (keywords) to images.
  • LandingLens automatically saves all models during model training.
  • You can now apply split, metadata, and tag information when uploading images to any project type. 

To learn more about these features, keep reading!

Changes to Dataset Versioning: Introducing Dataset Snapshots

In recent LandingLens releases, training a model and saving it created a “snapshot” of all the data in that model, including the images, labels, and predictions. You could create a new project from a dataset and even revert back to one. However, datasets were only saved for models, and you couldn’t train based on those datasets.

In this release, we’ve made the dataset versions more flexible, and we’re now calling them “dataset snapshots”, or “snapshots” just for short. Here are some of the things you can now do:

  • Create a snapshot at any time! You no longer have to train a model to create a snapshot.
  • Create a snapshot based on all the images in your project OR on the specific ones you’ve selected. 
  • Train a model using only the snapshot.
  • Download the Pascal VOC files and class map for a snapshot. This gives you the ability to re-upload the labeled images to LandingLens in the future, if needed.

Plus, you still have the ability to create new projects from snapshots, revert your project to a snapshot, and download a CSV with snapshot information.

For detailed information, go to Dataset Snapshots and watch the following tutorial:

Tag Images

You can now add tags (keywords) to images in your dataset! Using tags helps you organize and filter the images in your dataset. 

For example, let's say that you have images from Camera A and Camera B. You can create a tag for each camera and apply the tags to the corresponding images. Then, after you train a model, you can filter by all Camera A images, and see how the model performed on those. You can then do the same for Camera B images.

Tags are project-specific; creating a tag in one project doesn't add it to other projects. You can apply multiple tags to each image.

For detailed information, go to Tags and watch the following tutorial:

All Trained Models Are Now Automatically Saved

When you train a model, LandingLens now automatically saves and names it. This ensures that you can access all versions of your data in the snapshots dashboard and prevents models from being accidentally overwritten.

The default model naming convention is Model-mm-dd-yyyy_n, where n is the number of models in the project trained that day. For example, let’s say you train six models in a project on December 10, 2023. The default name of the sixth model will be Model-12-10-2023_6. You can rename a model at any time.

Default Name for the First Model Trained in a Project on November 18, 2023

Consistent Upload Experience

You can now apply split, metadata, and tag information when uploading images to any project type. Previously, you could only apply splits when uploading information to Segmentation projects. The updated upload page provides a more consistent experience and allows you to apply important information at upload.

Apply Split, Metadata, and Tag Information at Upload to Any Project

October 30, 2023

We've had many requests for this specific feature, and the long wait is finally over—you can now create a new project by copying an existing dataset version! This creates a new project with the selected dataset.

When you copy a dataset, you can even include the existing labels and metadata.

Create a New Project

For more information, go to Create a New Project from an Existing Dataset or check out the tutorial video below.

October 10, 2023

This newest version of LandingLens gives you more flexibility across the board. In this release, we've added:

  • A new way to upload images to your projects—via your smart phone!
  • Support for an additional file type—MPO
  • A new member type—Owner
  • The ability to change a user’s member type
  • More transparency for the credits used in deleted projects

For detailed info on each of these updates, keep reading!

Upload Images from Your Phone Directly into a LandingLens Project

You can now upload images from your phone directly into a project in LandingLens. To do this, click the Upload icon, then click Upload from Your Phone.

Generate and scan the QR code, and then take photos or select existing ones. All images are then uploaded into your project. To learn more, go to Upload Images from Your Phone.

Scan the QR Code and Click the Link on Your Phone

LandingLens Now Supports MPO Files

You can now upload MPO (Multi-Picture Object) files to LandingLens. An MPO file contains two JPG files that create a stereoscopic image when overlaid. When you upload an MPO file to LandingLens, LandingLens selects one of the two JPG files.

For more information about supported file types, go to Upload Images.

Owners and Changing Role Types

Before this new version, LandingLens offered two member types: Collaborators and Admins. Once you assigned a member type to a user, you couldn't change their role.

This new version of LandingLens now offers a new role called Owner. Owners have all the permissions as Admins, plus the ability to change a member's role! For example, if Anna was originally added as a Collaborator, but now she needs access to the API Key page, an Owner can "upgrade" Anna to be an Admin.

An organization can have up to three Owners. To learn more information, go to Member Roles.

Make a Member an Admin

Track Credits for Deleted Projects

If you delete a project, the credits used on that project are now easier to track on the Usage dashboard.

Previously, if you deleted a project, the Top Projects: By Credits and Top Project: By Images sections would show “(private project)” instead of the project name. Now, if you delete a project, the project name displays, making it easier to understand how credits were used. 

The Usage Log continues to show “-” instead of the names of deleted projects, because LandingLens pulls this data from a different place. 

For example, let’s say you deleted a project called “Quality Control”. The following screenshot shows how the Usage page would look after deleting the project.

The Usage Page After Deleting the "Quality Control" Project

The following table summarizes the changes:

SectionBeforeAfter
Top Projects: By Credits(private project)Project Name
Top Projects: By Images(private project)Project Name
Usage Log--

Bug Fixes

For users on the Classic Flow version of LandingLens: The Job hyperlinks on the Models tab now work correctly.

September 19, 2023

Welcome to the latest release of LandingLens! This update streamlines your project management experience. 

Now, when navigating the Projects page, you can effortlessly filter your search results by project type, providing you with even more refined control over your workflow. You can also now rename, delete, and invite users to projects directly from the Projects page.

Additionally, the ability to delete classes can now be enabled upon request for the Classic Flow version of LandingLens.

Bug Fixes

  • You no longer need to refresh the page to update how long ago a model was trained. Now, the time is updated automatically.
  • If you delete a label or “discard” the name of a class before you create it in a Visual Prompting project, those changes are now saved. Previously, the label or class would still appear.
  • We improved the transition from training a Visual Prompting model to seeing the results. Now, the predictions and model information load faster.

August 10, 2023

More Details Now Display on Project Cards

Project cards now display the total number of images in your dataset and trained models. You can hover over the icons to view more information, like the number of labeled images.

New Login Page Design

We've introduced a fresh look for the LandingLens login page. 

Revamped the Model Sidebar 

When you don't have any trained models, the Model sidebar displays a tooltip to help you effortlessly progress through the platform. 

The Polygon Shortcut Changed from "P" to "W"

LandingLens is equipped with several keyboard shortcuts. For Segmentation projects, the shortcut for the Polygon tool changed from "P" to "W".

Bug Fixes

  • Changed the file naming convention for downloaded CSV files of dataset snapshots. These files are now be named after the model and the date the file was downloaded.
  • A few "behind-the-scenes" bugs were fixed.

July 28, 2023

This newest version of LandingLens includes features to make it easier to manage your dataset and deploy your model!

Dataset Snapshots: More Control and Visibility into Your Dataset

With this release, we’re introducing the concept of dataset “snapshots”. Now, whenever you train a model, LandingLens saves your dataset—and the model’s predictions—as a “snapshot” that you can continue to access in your Project. With dataset snapshots, you can:

We’ve also redesigned the model pop-up window to make it easier to navigate all the model information and reports.

Revert to an Earlier Dataset

You can now revert your Project to use an earlier dataset. For example, let's say that you trained a model, and later added more images and labels. After training the model a second time, you see that the first model performed better, so you want to go back to that dataset. You can do this by reverting the dataset.

Revert to the Selected Dataset

For detailed instructions, go to Revert to a Saved Dataset.

Download a CSV of Dataset Information

In Object Detection and Classification projects, you can now download a CSV of information about the dataset. The CSV includes several columns of data, including Project Name, Image Name, Split.

Download the CSV

For detailed instructions, go to Download a CSV of Dataset Data.

Changes to the Model Training Process

When you click Train, the first step in the model training process is now to gather and save the images and data currently in your Project. This information is part of the “dataset snapshot” that you can later revert to. 

This step displays as Taking a snapshot of your data in the Model panel.

Taking a Snapshot of Your Data

For more information about the model training process, go to Train Models

Changes to the Model Information Pop-Up Window

We’ve redesigned the Model pop-up window to make it easier to navigate. The pop-up is now organized into multiple tabs.

The Model Pop-Up Is Now Organized by Tabs


Mobile Inference Support in Segmentation and Visual Prompting

You can now use Mobile Inference on Segmentation and Visual Prompting Projects. Previously, it was only available for Object Detection and Classification Projects.

Streamlined Deployment Workflow from Build Page

We’ve streamlined the workflow for deploying a model from the Build page. When you click Deploy, you can now simply enter the model name and select your endpoint.

Deploy the Model
Name the Model and Select an Endpoint

Downloadable Pascal VOC Files Now Available for Classification Projects

Before, downloadable Pascal VOC files were only available for Object Detection and Segmentation projects. Now, we've made this feature available for Classification projects.

Bug Fixes

  • Selected images moved to a different split will no longer remain selected.
  • You no longer need to refresh the browser to save a model.
  • Users in classic flow can resume deploying from the Models page.
  • Fixed multiple issues related to deleting classes.
  • Fixed multiple issues related to creating an endpoint with a name that already exists in that project.
  • Changed the copy of the "Defect" filter to "Class".
  • Fixed the login process for SSO.

July 5, 2023

Smart Labeling

We are thrilled to announce Smart Labeling, a new tool that helps you label objects in Segmentation Projects faster and with more accuracy. 

When Smart Labeling is enabled, simply hover over the object you want to detect, click, and press enter. Smart Labeling automatically detects the shapes you want to select and applies your selected Class!

To learn more, check out Label with Smart Labeling.

Smart Labeling

New API Key System

Up until this release, LandingLens required both an API Key and API Secret to be used to run inference. After evaluating our user experience and current industry standards, we decided to eliminate the use of the API Secret. As of this release, LandingLens generates and requires only an API Key!

All existing API Key and API Secret pairs will continue to be valid, and all applications using those credentials will continue to work. 

You can create multiple API Keys. This gives you more flexibility and control over who can run inference with your deployed Models. Additionally, you can revoke and delete API Keys.

For more details, check out API Keys.

API Keys

New Way to View the API Command for Deployment

We now offer a new way to get the API call on the Deploy page. Now you can click the Actions icon and select View API Command.

New Way to View the API Command for Deployment

Bug Fixes

  • If you delete a Class, you can now create a new Class with the same name as the deleted Class.
  • When using the QR code for Mobile Inference, some users got this error: “Missing user record with apikey or user id: -1”. The issue that caused this error has been fixed.
  • If a Class was deleted in a Classification Project, the model metrics were also deleted for that Project. The issue that caused this error has been fixed.

June 22, 2023

Improvements

We've added these improvements to help you manage your credits and pricing plan:

  • If you reach your Project maximum, LandingLens now alerts you with a new tile. The Project maximum applies to the current number of Projects, so you can delete an existing Project to create another one. Or, if you want an unlimited number of Projects, upgrade to a Visionary or Enterprise plan.
    Notification When You Reach the Project Maximum
  • If training a Model or running inference will put you above your credit maximum, LandingLens now alerts you with a pop-up that guides you through the next steps.
    Notification When You Reach the Credit Maximum

Bug Fixes

If you have a long Model name, it’s now shortened when it displays in the user interface. Hover over the name to see the full name. Previously, long Model names would attempt to wrap to a second line, but the top of the text would get cut off.

Hover to See the Full Model Name

June 14, 2023

We're thrilled to unveil the latest release of LandingLens! This version empowers you with more ways to run inference on the computer vision Models you create in LandingLens. You can now use your smartphone to capture images and immediately see your Model’s predictions. Additionally, all users can now download a 14 day free trial of LandingEdge! 

We’ve also streamlined the process to develop Models by expanding our Workflow Assistant to new Project Types and making it easier to end the Model training process.

Learn more about these updates below!

Use Your Model on a Smartphone with Mobile Inference

Landing AI is excited to share that we’ve developed a new feature—Mobile Inference! This feature empowers you with an additional way to use your LandingLens Model in the real-world. For detailed information, go to Mobile Inference.

After you develop your Model and deploy it to an endpoint, you can then generate a QR code by clicking the QR code icon.

Generate a QR Code

Scanning the QR code with your phone opens the LandingLens app in your browser.

Scan the QR Code with Your Smartphone

From there, you can take a photo or select an image from your phone. The app sends the photo to your deployed Model, and your Model runs inference on it. The Model’s predictions then display immediately on your phone!

Take or Select a Photo
See Predictions and Object Count on Your Smartphone

The images and predictions are also saved back to LandingLens, so that you can review all results in a centralized location. You can also share the QR code with your colleagues, so that you can all collaborate on running inference.

See Results in LandingLens

Clearly-Defined Deployment Options

We’ve added more visual guides to the Deploy page to help you choose the right deployment method for your use case.  

For example, when you first click Deploy, you’ll see two options for how to use your model. 

  • Cloud Deployment: Click to create an endpoint, which is a virtual location that hosts your Model. You can then send images to the Model via API requests, or use a new feature called Mobile Inference to run your Model on your smartphone (more info on that below). 
  • Edge Deployment: Click to deploy your Model via LandingEdge, the Landing AI application that connects to your edge devices.

Create an Endpoint for Cloud Deployment

Download a Free Trial of LandingEdge

You can now download a free trial of LandingEdge directly from LandingLens!

If you haven't deploy a Model yet, open a Project to the Deploy page and click Download LandingEdge. Then follow the on-screen prompts to complete the download. For detailed information, go to LandingEdge Overview.

Download LandingEdge

If you’ve already deployed a Model via Cloud Deployment, click LandingEdge.

Download LandingEdge

Workflow Assistant

We added the Workflow Assistant to Segmentation and Classification Projects. The Workflow Assistant includes a progress bar at the top of your Project that guides you through all the steps of developing a computer vision Model, from uploading images to your dataset to using your Model to make predictions.

Workflow Assistant in a Classification Model

When you hover over the Workflow Assistant, it nudges you in the right direction by “shaking” the buttons you need to click to move to the next step. For example, after you’ve labeled at least 10 images, the Train button shakes, letting you know that you have enough data to create your first Model.

Hover Over the Workflow Assistant to "Shake" What You Need to Click Next

End Training Early

We’ve provided you with more on-screen guidance about what happens if you end the Model training process before it’s completed. 

Model training can only be ended at Step 3: Training & Learning, which is when the model training process actually begins. The Stop Training button is now End Training Now.

End Training Now

If you end Model training early, LandingLens completes its current round (epoch) of training and evaluates the images in your dataset with the Model it had generated up to that point. The Model may not be as accurate as it would be if training had completed.  For detailed information, go to Train Models.

Large Image Support

When using Custom Training in LandingLens Enterprise, you can now resize images in Object Detection and Segmentation Projects to be up to 36MP. For detailed information, go to Custom Training.

Bug Fixes

We fixed a bug in Agreement-Based Labeling that allowed you to filter by users who weren’t assigned any tasks. Now, you can only filter by users who have been assigned tasks.

June 5, 2023

What’s New

To make it easier to understand some of the features, we updated some of the user interface text throughout LandingLens.

Bug Fixes

  • We fixed an issue that caused Labeling Tasks to show that a negative number of images needed review. Now, the number of images under review is calculated correctly.
  • We fixed a bug that caused the Class colors in Predictions to be different from the actual colors assigned to those Classes. 

May 24, 2023

What's New

  • When you delete a Class, LandingLens now shows you a pop-up that lists the impacts of deleting a Class. This empowers you to make an informed decision and helps prevent accidentally deleting Classes. For more information, go to Delete Classes.
    Delete Class
  • You can now delete a Class when labeling images. For more information, go to Delete Classes.
    Trash Icon
  • We improved the experience with labeling images in Classification Projects. Previously, if you selected a label for an image on the Build tab, LandingLens would have to refresh the page to save the change. Now when you select a label, LandingLens saves the change without refreshing the page.
  • We made it easier to upload sample images in our Example projects. Previously, you had to click the sample images to upload them. Now you can also drag and drop them.
    Drag and Drop Images to Upload Them
  • We updated the process for creating a new organization in LandingLens. You’ll now be prompted to name your organization and select your use case: Work, Academic, or Personal.
    Select How You Plan to Use LandingLens

Bug Fixes

  • LandingLens now prevents you from creating two Classes with the same name. Previously, it was possible to reuse the same name but with different capitalization (for example, “Scratch” and “scratch”). 
  • When you hover over the Train button, a tooltip shows you how many credits the training process will cost. It costs 1 credit to train each image. LandingLens trains a model based on all images in your Project, not just the images that are filtered to display. Previously, the tooltip calculated the cost based on only the filtered images. How, the tooltip now correctly calculates the cost to include all images.

    For example, the Project in the image below has 13 images. A filter is applied which causes only 3 images to display. However, the tooltip correctly states that training the Model cost 13 credits.
    The Training Tooltip Calculates the Cost

May 16, 2023

The ability to delete Classes has been re-enabled. It was temporary disabled due to some reported issues. The Landing AI team has resolved these issues.

When you delete a Class, all labels on images for that Class are also removed. If you delete a Class after training your Model, train it again. For more information about how to delete Classes, go to Delete Classes.

Delete a Class
Note:
Deleting Classes is not supported in Classic Flow.

May 15, 2023

The Check Label Quality feature has been re-enabled. It was temporary disabled due to some reported issues. The Landing AI team has resolved these issues.

May 4, 2023

What's New

  • We added a keyboard shortcut for the Eraser tool in Visual Prompting. You can now press to select the Eraser tool.
    Press "E" to Select the Eraser
  • Members that are Collaborators can now access other Organizations that they are members of in LandingLens. Users can only access Organizations that they are Admins or Collaborators of. For more information about accessing Organizations in LandingLens, go to Switch Organizations.

Bug Fixes

  • The Load Sample Data pop-up window was briefly too narrow, which caused the text to overlap. This pop-up window has now been resized to fit all the text correctly.
    Load Sample Data Pop-Up Window
  • If you add labels to an image in Visual Processing, your changes are now saved if you select another image before clicking Run.
  • The keyboard shortcuts for changing the Brush size and Eraser size in Visual Processing now work correctly. 

Other Updates

The Check Label Quality feature is temporary disabled due to some reported issues with this tool. We will notify you in the Release Notes once these issues have been fixed and the feature re-enabled. 

April 25, 2023

Landing AI is thrilled to announce the Beta release of an innovative, new capability in LandingLens: Visual Prompting

Visual Prompting is a paradigm shift in the field of computer vision. You label only a few small areas of an object in a few images, and the Model almost immediately detects the whole object in all of your images.

Visual Prompting Workflow

Visual Prompting has a highly iterative—and yet fast—workflow. After you upload images to your Project, start labeling one. Use the Brush “paint” a small area of the first object you want to detect. When prompted, enter a name for the object. This is your first Class.

Label Your First Object

Then, use the Brush to paint a small area of another object you want to detect. This is your second Class. If you only want to detect one object type, that’s okay—simply name your second Class “Background” or something similar. You can have multiple Classes, but create at least two to get started.

Label Your Second Object

Then click Run! The Model shows you its Predictions in just a moment, in both the image you labeled and the other images in your dataset. In most cases, the Predictions won’t be perfect at first. Not only is that okay, that’s expected. You can now fine-tune your labels.

The Predictions Display in Seconds

Get Started with Visual Prompting

You can create a Visual Prompting Model in seconds and deploy in minutes. You don’t even need a background in computer vision, machine learning, or any type of AI!

To learn more details, check out our full support article on Visual Prompting. Start using Visual Prompting today by signing up for a LandingLens free trial!

Caution:
Visual Prompting is in Beta. It might not function as well as our other production-ready features.

Today’s release of LandingLens includes a few behind-the-scenes bug fixes. 

We also included a workflow improvement that will keep your Projects running smoothly. In the past, it was possible to create a Project, create a Class, and then change the Project Type (for example, from Object Detection to Segmentation). That would confuse the backend, because the label infrastructure for each Project Type is very different.

The newest version of LandingLens prevents you from changing the Project Type after creating Classes. If you want to use a different Project Type, simply delete the Project and create a new one.

Now: You Can’t Change the Project Type After Creating Classes

Labeling Tasks in Segmentation Projects are now assigned to users in batches of five images. For example, if you create a Labeling Task with 10 images and assign it to a user, that user will get two batches of five images each.

Labeling Tasks Are Grouped into Batches of Five Images

When the user opens a Labeling Task, they will see five images. When they submit that batch, the second batch of five images becomes available.

When You Finish a Batch, LandingLens Gives You the Next One

 Limiting each batch to five images allows LandingLens to process each batch quickly.

  • Previously, the “internal” names for Models displayed in certain areas of the user interface. This included the Historical Data section in LandingLens, and the Model drop-down menu in LandingEdge. Now, the Model name and your selected Confidence Threshold display, so that you can easily choose which Model you want to use. The following images show how the Model names look before and after this update.

  • We’ve made it easier to upload images to new Projects! Now you can click anywhere below the Project Types to open the Upload pop-up window. Previously, only clicking the Drop to Upload icon would open this pop-up.

  • We’ve changed how Model training runs in the LandingLens backend. This change isn’t visible in the user interface, and doesn’t impact the speed or accuracy of your Model.

We updated a few things in the background to optimize the LandingLens experience. We are continuing to work on adding new features, and we can't wait to share them with you soon!

Additionally, we updated a few articles:

  • If you rescale images for custom Model training, LandingLens now provides text to ensure that your image fits within the minimum and maximum area constraints. For more information on custom training, go to Custom Model Settings.

Bug Fixes

  • Previously, if you selected a Model on the Deploy page and then opened the Build page, that same Model would be selected. Now, selecting a Model on the Deploy page doesn’t change the Model shown elsewhere. 
  • Previously, if you added Data Augmentation to custom Model training and then deleted those settings, the Data Augmentation would still be applied. This issue has been fixed. If Data Augmentation is deleted, it won’t impact training.
  • We fixed a bug that occurred when trying to upload images from a WebCam to some Classification Projects.

March 10, 2023

We discovered that naming a Class “Ok” could cause issues when training a Model in Object Detection and Segmentation Projects. To ensure that your Model is trained correctly, LandingLens no longer accepts “Ok” (or any variation of its capitalization) as a Class name for these Project Types. You can continue to use “Ok” as a Class in Classification Projects.

We've Got a New Look

Today we released several new features and changes to the look and feel of LandingLens.

  • Login page: You may have noticed we spruced up the login page with a new design.
    Login Page
  • Home page: The new home page will be the new core page, where we will provide you with organization information, important updates, and access to your most recent projects.
    Home Page
  • Pre-trained examples: We have included some examples of how LandingLens can be used. Go to Examples, and check out some of our pre-trained models!
    Examples

Deployment Page

We've got a new look and experience for the Deploy page. We have improved the flow and experience of the Deploy page by adding easier navigation across your various devices (now called "endpoints") and access to the historical data associated with each endpoint. For more information, go to Cloud Deployment.

Deploy Page

Here are some highlights:

  • Endpoints (previously known as Devices) can be found under Cloud Deployment in the navigation bar on the left. You can deploy each endpoint with a trained Model and fixed Confidence Threshold. You can update your Model and Confidence Threshold by selecting Update Deployment.
  • The Predict tool allows you to quickly drag and drop an image to run inference and test your Model.
  • Images sent to the endpoint through the API integration will show up under Historical Data, just like before.
  • You can find your API Key and API Secret conveniently located in the navigation bar on the left.

What's New

We've upgraded how default training works for Classification models to improve the performance of these models.

Bug Fixes

Previously, when a model training job failed, an error would display, and users could not retrain the model. We fixed this so users can retrain models.

Announcement

The Support Center URL changed from https://support-landingai.document360.io/ to https://support.landing.ai/.

What's New

  • LandingLens now displays a workflow assistant to guide you through creating your first Object DetectionProject. Hover over the workflow assistant to read more information about your current step.
    Refer to the Workflow Assistant for Help
  • LandingLens introduces a new feature called "Predict". Predict allows you to quickly upload new images to your Model so that the Model can make predictions on those images. Predict streamlines the Run Livefeature so you can deploy Models faster.
    Note:
    "Predict" is currently only available for trained Object Detection Models.
