Managing images has evolved from arranging your family photos in a photo album with the cellophane sheet covers. Between digital cameras and smart phones, taking a photo is easy, but what we do with the photos has changed, and maybe not in a positive way. This interesting topic came to us from Unite in their article, “How Does Image Classification Work?

It would be nice if your phone and software platforms, like social media sites, could automatically arrange and classify your images for ease in findability.

Surprisingly, this is possible through artificial intelligence (AI)-powered image recognition and classification. The most recent and reliable image classification systems primarily use object-level classification schemes. For these approaches image data must be prepared in specific ways and the objects/regions need to be selected and preprocessed.

Efficient classification of images can be managed by a taxonomy. The task can be translated into the structured learning framework.
