MemoTrek is an application that takes your travel photos as input and makes personalized recommendations for future travel destinations. It provides two types of recommendations: you-may-also-likes for a similar type of experience and something-different for new adventures.
The Clothing Predictor is a web app that uses convolutional neural networks to identify images with one person in them, and then predict the clothing being worn by that person.
As more data is sourced through satellite imagery it has become an important task to accurately identify important hotspots and targets within these images so as to classify them for practical use.
