Unique images by tag
I got back from a fantastic holiday with some friends and I wanted one combined photo album which had all of the best pictures. But between us we took hundreds of photos! And I didn't want to have sort through them manually.
What it does
MRI Scanner identifies similar images in a photo album and let's you quickly pick which one you like for your final album. If you don't have time for that, MRI Scanner will do all of that for you and create an album of unique photos. Once you have your final album, you can also search images based on what's in them. Only want an album with people in them? No problem!
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Computing image similarity is computationally expensive and takes too long at the moment. Making the page interactive (image selection, tag selection, image carousel).
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting our image similarity algorithm to work well. Integrating image tagging and tag search functionality. Building an image carousel.
What we learned
How to compute image similarity, how to make calls to an API, how to use the Clarifai Api, manipulating filenames using the os module, image processing. Using more complex web dev tools. Improving at troubleshooting.
What's next for MRI Scanner
Fully integrating the back and front end, moving it from local host to a server, making it possible for users to upload their own photo albums
