Inspiration

The hashtag #SoFingGoldsmiths on Twitter.

What it does

Give it the URL of an image, and using its advanced machine learning algorithm, it will determine how fucking Goldsmiths it is. There's also a Twitter bot.

How we built it

It uses Clarifai on the backend. When you submit an image to be tagged, it gets the Clarifai tags and increments the score for those tags in the database. When you submit an image to be scored, it gets the Clarifai tags again, but this time uses the highest certainty tag, gets that tag's score from our database, divides it by the highest scoring tag and multiplies it by that tag's certainty for that image. Phew.

Challenges we ran into

We didn't really understand how Clarifai worked at the beginning, so we started developing something that wouldn't work.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It works. And it's sick.

What we learned

How Clarifai works. How Redis works.

What's next for How F*ing Goldsmiths?

Train it up, make it the leading source for how f*ing Goldsmiths an image is!
