"An image says more than 1000 words" At StyleSage we collect and analyze e-commerce data from 150 million fashion products across 100+ countries - updated daily! Analyzing the images and understanding them is a critical step in categorizing products, extracting attributes and detecting outliers. Join us to understand how Convoluted Neural Network (CNN) algorithms can be used in Python for deeplearning image analysis. In this talk I am going to explain the basic concept of deeplearning algorithms, give an overview on available frameworks in Python and then show a hands on application of that technology in the fashion domain.
