What's SharpAI DeepCamera

This is a unique repository in many ways. It’s a deep learning model open sourced to protect your privacy. The entire DeepCamera concept is based on automated machine learning (AutoML). So you don’t even need any programming experience to train a new model.


DeepCamera works on Android devices. You can integrate the code with surveillance cameras as well. There’s a LOT you can do with DeepCamera’s code, including:

  • Face recognition
  • Face Detection
  • Control from mobile application
  • Object detection
  • Motion detection
  • Human ReID (Recognition based on human shape)

And a whole host of other things. Building your own AI-powered model has never been this easy!

How to develop on SharpAI DeepCamera

You can develop on SharpAI DeepCamera almost on every devices.

How to Run DeepCamera on 64-bit Android From Source Code

How to Run DeepCamera on 32-bit Android

Run on Raspberry Pi

Run on Embedded Linux with docker (Rockchip RK3399)

git clone
cd DeepCamera/docker  
sudo ./ start

Run on X86 Laptop Docker

git clone -b pc_version
cd DeepCamera/docker
sudo ./ start #make sure Serial No is in docker/workaipython/ro_serialno

It is even possible to integrate with your Surveilance Camera

Through Shinobi (if you install DeepCamera through Docker)

Then you need to follow Shinobi's document to add camera. or click to see our tutorial

password: SharpAI2018

You can also turn Mac Camera into RTSP camera(not tested)

Through Dahua SDK (if you install DeepCamera on Android)
