AI Picture tagging
Festive Road (http://www.festiveroad.org/) are a Milton Keynes based art foundation. They take their pedal-powered ride-on puppets and other large artworks to events in Milton Keynes and all around the country.
They take hundreds of photos of their events and collect hundreds more from other event photographers and the public. They want to capture and curate all those photos, but it's too much to do by hand and they can't rely on standard photo-tagging services as they don't have "giant pedal-powered elephant" as label.
That's where we come in. There are loads of ways to train your own tagger, from services that learn tags from photos you present them to tookkits like TensorFlow that allow you to build your own classifiers. And we're not just after back-end devs: we're also after front-end types to make a beautiful and useful image-search front end, as well as tools to help people get involved with improving AI classifer.
