I was blown away when I first read "A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style" and have wanted to build this app for a long time. But the original algorithm took 20+ minutes on high-end GPUs. Then "Perceptual Losses for Real-Time Style Transfer and Super-Resolution" dropped and I was yet again blown away, realizing style transfer could happen in real time.
What it does
Convolutional neural network image transformers intelligently alter images to emulate a particular artistic style.
How I built it
Developed the ML and backend first, slowly SCPing images over the wire and waiting days for training time, then built out a RESTful interface using flask as the server which was then consumed by a frontend iOS app.
What's next for Tessellize
Hopefully we'll get this out to the app store to compete with Prisma :)
