Automatically tagging, captioning and categorising locally stored images using the Azure Computer Vision API

It’s easy in the digital age to amass tens of thousands of photos (or more!). Categorising these can be a challenging task, let alone searching through them to find that one happy snap from 10 years ago. Significant advances in machine learning over the past decade have made it possible to automatically tag and categorise… Continue reading Automatically tagging, captioning and categorising locally stored images using the Azure Computer Vision API

Sparkling-water – keeping the web UI alive

Spark is a great way to make use of the available RAM on a Hadoop cluster to run fast in-memory analysis and queries, and H2O is a great project for running distributed machine learning algorithms on data stored in Hadoop.  Together they form “Sparkling Water” (Spark + H2O, obviously!). Easy to follow instructions for setting… Continue reading Sparkling-water – keeping the web UI alive
