    Festive Road

    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.

    JUXT Central Milton Keynes

    Register for free - tickets from Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/milton-keynes-hackathon-registration-25303276782?ref=ebtn) Help the community through data and technology. The final decided topic of the hackathon is a redway routes app. Many people expressed a wish to use the redway more, both for environmental and personal reasons, but noted that they had difficulty navigating the redways, planning a route, knowing fun places to visit and knowing where were the safest places to go. The app will have: • Map of the redway routes - possibly driven by the API of the openstreetmap or Google Maps API • Information on the location of great places to visit in Milton Keynes • Information on bike lock-up points around CMK • Average busyness, crime statistics and speed of travel on certain paths • A route planner with lots of filtering to give you the coolest routes Details at the MK Hackathon (https://www.mkhackathon.org/) site. The hack will be ran over the 25th and 26th. 10am - 5pm each day. All developers, designers and Milton Keynes and Cycling enthusiasts welcome. Location Our awesome partners JUXT (https://juxt.pro/) will be hosting us at their offices in Central Milton Keynes 500 Avebury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 2BE We will be providing stationary and nibbles for the day and we'll probably eat dinner in a local restaurant on Saturday evening. Please bring your own laptop if you wish to participate in the project design and build.
