wikiart.org has many paintings of different genres and there is a need to make better interfaces to order, sort and search them
What it does
This is a classifier, which accurately classifies the given painting into 10 genres including landscape, portrait etc
How I built it
Built it using the Keras library with Hyperparameter optimisation done in Hyperas and Elephas library. Distributed optimization is performed using Spark nodes.
Challenges I ran into
Setting up Spark properly was a big challenge faced
What I learned
Learned quite a lot about Convolutional Neural Network architectures and their effectiveness.
What's next for artNet Genre Classifier
Next would be to do Painter recognition as well as Painting style classification
