ML (Machine Learning) Kit was one of the key highlights in Google I/O 2018. This kit is comprised of
- Image Labeling
- Text- Recognition
- Face- Detection
- Barcode- scanning
- Landmark- detection
For text recognition using MLKit you can refer my article here.
I decided to explore more about it and utilize the power of ML Kit in Flutter. Programmers have started working on this kit globally.
One of the efficient flutter packages, I came across was from azihsoyn
mlkit 0.5.0— A Flutter plugin to use the Firebase ML Kit.
We simply need to import this package in our pubspec.yaml file as
and in your dart file : import ‘package:mlkit/mlkit.dart’;
Please note that the name of your app should be same in the Firebase, your project’s manifest.xml (if playing in android) and in the app-level build.gradle (if playing in android).
Include the google-services.json in the app directory of android. (one of the steps in Firebase project setup).
VisionLabel of MlKit library, is used for storing the labels which are fetched from Firebase ML.
FirebaseVisionLabelDetector : This is used to initialize the Firebase instance of Vision Label.
Click on the floating button and it opens gallery. You select some image and it labels the items from the image using MLKit.
The data retrieved from Firebase ML, gives us three results :
These are displayed in the application (as shown in the image above) as :
