Automate the Boring Stuff with Machine LearningJohn McCarthy Stage
At idealo.de, we have a lot of repetitive work that we can automate with machine learning. In this talk, I will present some of the problems that we face and also how we solved it. In particular, I will share how we taught a computer to understand aesthetics of hotel photos to rank millions of images. Further use cases include low-to-high resolution, categorizing hotel images and also automating the image gallery for our product catalog. I will also show which technologies we used to solve the problem. I will conclude my talk with some further projects that we’re going to work on and also a summary of what went well and what not.
