Inspiration

Shazam, and the desire to know which episode funny clips online come from

What it does

Tells you the show, season, episode AND time signature of the clip you're recording!

How I built it

A machine learning model-Convolutional Neural Network-classifies the clip into the correct show. Then, a Shazam-like audio hashing algorithm figures out the specific episode and time signature of the clip.

Challenges I ran into

Building an app version. We ended up making a mock-up, and running most the functionality server-side.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

First documented cartoon classifier in the world!

What I learned

How little training data you need when using certain reliable methods: like the hashing function, and using a technique called "transfer learning" for the classifier.

What's next for Showtime

Adding a larger catalogue of shows and episodes. Enabling a social component to share favorite clips and corresponding information-quite useful among our _ ~hilarious~ _ group of friends!
