One of our close friends studies oceanography and coral reefs and we've always joked about how we would automate their job once amazon comes out with a submarine drone and an sdk for image recognition.

What it does

Takes a stream of frames from youtube live stream and sends them into AWS Rekognition for feature/label detection.

How we built it

Integrating youtube / iOS -> s3 -> Rekognition -> DynamoDB -> Django

Challenges we ran into

Automation takes time and Rekognition is so new a service there are not tutorials on how to set up a video stream with their SQS service. Even within the AWS documentation they suggest running a standard queue service for the live stream when in reality you need a FIFO queue to preserve order.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It's our first time using a CI/CD development environment in AWS!

What we learned

How to stream live video from youtube to AWS. How to use s3, dyanmoDB, CI/CD in AWS.

What's next for ocean_shrimp

We will repurpose the tool for other coral reefs and create better fish detection models.
