We are reusing the start server notebook for launching the EVA server.

!wget -nc "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/georgia-tech-db/eva/master/tutorials/00-start-eva-server.ipynb"
%run 00-start-eva-server.ipynb
cursor = connect_to_server()

Load the surveillance videos for analysis#

We use regular expression to load all the videos into the table#

cursor.execute('DROP TABLE ObjectDetectionVideos')
response = cursor.fetch_all()
cursor.execute('LOAD VIDEO "ua_detrac.mp4" INTO ObjectDetectionVideos;')
response = cursor.fetch_all()
@status: ResponseStatus.SUCCESS
0  Table Successfully dropped: ObjectDetectionVideos
@query_time: 0.03936416003853083
@status: ResponseStatus.SUCCESS
0  Number of loaded VIDEO: 1
