I came into the hackathon looking up various papers on Google's research pages.
I wanted to create a classifier which can tell whether a video is animated or live-action and then create an appropriate title for the video clip.
Starting out simple
To start out with a simpler form, I focused on just creating a classifier which takes an image and classifies it as either "animated" (0) or "live-action" (1).
Getting the datasets was hard so instead... I made a script which executes selected google searches and crawls to resulting websites for the images I needed to train and test on.
One of the mentors suggested I learn how to use Keras so I worked on using Keras to create the network and get a simple classifier working.
