At Czar Softech, I am always looking at new ways to process multimedia data. With deep learning now becoming mainstream, 2 plugins: License Plate Recognition & Face Recognition use frameworks like Caffe, Tensorflow and new features in the Dlib library.
After a review of Caffe and Tensorflow, I found Tensorflow more suitable for Surveillance requirements. The session in TF all multi thread access resulting in improved performance.
Presently I am in the process of porting the License Plate recognition plugin from Caffe to Tensorflow.
