Hackathon - Belfast Bot
In July 2017 I took part in Kainos AI Camp. Over two weeks I learned about the theory behind machine learning and how to apply it in software development.
If I was to continue the development of this project I’d like to make full use of Bot Builder cards to present location info better. The CNN model is currently only trained to identify either Belfast City Hall or QUB. I’d like to play about with adding more landmarks into the mix or using the Azure computer vision API. I would also use geolocation data stored in image metadata to improve the accuracy of landmark identification.
This was an incredibly fun opportunity and a brilliant introduction to the world of machine learning. A massive thanks goes out to the folks at Kainos who did a superb job at teaching us.
