Likelihood to Recommend

Amazon Tensor Flow

A well-suited scenario for using AWS Tensor Flow is when having a project with a geographically dispersed team, a client overseas and large data to use for training. AWS Tensor Flow is less appropriate when working for clients in regions where it hasn't been allowed yet for use. Since smaller clients are in regions where AWS Tensor Flow hasn't been allowed for use, and those clients traditionally don't have enough hardware, this situation deters a wider use of the tool.

IBM Watson Visual Recognition

As I mentioned before, it can only be employed in simple basic visual recognition applications. It can be employed in large projects and relying it on completely is not encouraged. It's better to create your own algorithms rather than using it. If you are from a non-programming background, then I may suggest you rely on this and use it to develop simple apps that can predict a few plants and animals.

Pros

Amazon Tensor Flow

  • Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) allows resizable compute capacity in the cloud, providing the necessary elasticity to provide services for both, small and medium-sized businesses.
  • Tensor Flow allows us to train our models much faster than in our on-premise equipment.
  • Most of the pre-trained models are easy to adapt to our clients' needs.

IBM Watson Visual Recognition

  • Easy to use interface, you can just drag and drop the images in the negative and positive dropboxes to train.
  • It's affordable and there is a free version to test for yourself and check if it's useful for you.
  • Easy to integrate with apps using one single API key and you can train easily with your terminal.

Cons

Amazon Tensor Flow

  • SageMaker isn't available in all regions. This is complicated for some clients overseas.
  • For larger instances, when using a GPU, it takes a while to talk to a customer service representative to ask for a limit increase. Given this, it's recommendable to ask in advance for a limit increase in more expensive and larger cases; otherwise, SageMaker will set the limit to zero by default.
  • Since the data has to be stored in S3 and copied to training, it doesn't allow to test and debug locally. Therefore, we have to wait a lot to check everything after every trail.

IBM Watson Visual Recognition

  • Not perfect
  • Accuracy is doubted and sometimes it may not predict correctly.
  • I think it should be improved and should add a few more functionalities.

IBM Watson Visual Recognition 6.0
Based on 1 answer
I am giving this rating on the basis of its usability in real-time applications and based on the interface to upload negative and positive images to train the AI. But it's not perfect and sometimes its predictions are wrong. On overall usability, it's better if you are planning on working with UI rather than using complex programs and algorithms on your own.

Alternatives Considered

Amazon Tensor Flow

Microsoft Azure is better than Amazon Tensor Flow because it provides easier and pre-built capabilities such as Anomaly Detection, Recommendation, and Ranking.AWS is better than IBM Watson ML Studio because it has direct and prebuilt clustering capabilities AWS, like IBM Watson ML Studio, has powerful built-in algorithms, providing a stronger platform when comparing it with MS Azure ML Services and Google ML Engine.

Return on Investment

Amazon Tensor Flow

  • Positive: It has allowed us to work with our overseas teams without any large hardware investing.
  • Positive: Pre-trained models significantly reduce the time to develop solutions for our clients.
  • Negative: Since it's a relatively new tool, you have to be careful about not paying for large errors while learning to use the tool.

IBM Watson Visual Recognition

  • Its affordable and can be employed in small apps.
  • The free version enables us to use it in our less trafficked web apps and in the future, you may switch to the standard version from premium.
  • Overall performance will be berated as average.
