Using intelligent services in your app to interpret what’s in a photo (with Node.js)

After our beginners session, we’ll host our next workshop around more advanced topics – but not too difficult 🙂 In this course you’ll learn how to use existing services created by others to for example interpret what’s in your photo. You’ve probably seen the demos, ”How old am I?”, ”Dog or hotdog?” and various websites that use similar machine learning services to interpret contents of their catalog (= for example you could automatically tag images in an online catalog by color, item type etc.)
