Ever wondered if you look more like a Chicken or are you a little more Squirrely? Can’t say I had until I came across Clarifai whilst thinking about a new ReactJS project.
Turns out it was incredibly easy to build an App to do this. Clarifai has a super simple dashboard where you can train it to identify almost anything. In fact I just had to show it three pictures of Chickens and three of Squirrels and it was pretty much there. I grabbed my free API which gives me a limited number of requests, created a single page React app, added some Progressive Web powers so I can run it App like on my phone and I was there.
I’m sorry this isn’t public as I can’t afford the unlimited request licence but here are the results.
Pretty definitively it knows that’s a Squirrel.
And clearly it knows that’s a Chicken…. but what happens if you give it a bigger challenge , say a ferret!
Seems about right to me. And of course the inevitable and something I’ve been trying out on any of my friends who are curious.
