Machine-Learning model

To create your own machine-learning model, you can read our blog post “How we created our Face-Recognition model”

The short version is:

  • We trained a model in the AWS using Nvidia DIGITS
  • Took a couple of hundred pictures of each person, and extracted the faces
  • Also added an “unknown” category with different faces.
  • Used a pretrained model fine-tuned for face-recognition.
