A French startup has developed its own algorithm to visually identify objects. Rather than choosing the usual categories such as faces or animals, Prevision.io has decided to train its artificial intelligence on a very French specialty: cheeses.
What could be more French than a debate around cheese? It is therefore no great surprise that we discover that one of the projects of the French startup Prevision.io, specialist in , with reference to , l’ which identifies the songs., is an artificial intelligence capable of recognizing cheese just from a photo. The developers called their AI
Theis a very complex task. While an app that recognizes cheese may seem trivial, it is a real challenge for which required training on a large database containing photos of cheeses with their identification. It is not moreover the work of Prevision.io only, since Cheezam was developed in partnership with a second French startup called Isahit.
A simple photo is enough to identify a cheese
Cheezam is available as a web application, in alpha version. Just go to the site from his and click on “Take a Photo”. Take a new photo of a cheese or select one already saved on the device. The AI automatically tries to identify it and indicates its confidence index. In case of error, it is possible to send the image indicating the name of the cheese in order to improve the accuracy of the AI.
