Tattoodo, a platform for the cultivation and appreciation of tattoo art, taught artificial intelligence to understand tattoo styles.
In this workshop, Dennis Micky Jensen and Goran Vuksic, the developers responsible, will explain how they built a neural network for tattoo style recognition, demonstrate how to train your own model using deep learning framework Caffe on Nvidia DIGITS backed AWS instance and how to convert this model into CoreML model and integrate it into the iOS application.
