Wow, cant believe I hadnt manage to stumble across this. Will definitely be following as Im certainly curious to see how your SSD implementation performs. I've developed some ML notification software as well (based on tensorflow), Ive been using Faster-RCNN as I have GPU's with CUDA at my disposal, but I get that many don't. Im also a huge data privacy advocate, so I love what you guys are doing, this has always been my passion, showing people you can still have awesome automation while retaining control of your data! The fact that youre doing it in a way that makes it "comfortable" for the average user is certainly what the market needs as well
Wishing you the best of luck with this project, it sure seems to be coming along nicely!
