Fashion search with Deep Learning

ImpactHub - Atlantic room

18th November, 10:10-11:10

This is a technical talk delivered by Zimilar.ro, the Cluj-based startup which is using Deep Learning to offer visual search for online fashion retail. We discuss the emerging field of Deep Neural Networks and how we use them to index, store and retrieve similar fashion items, based solely on their visual aspect. Also we discuss the relatively heavy-weight processing requirements and how to address this with the proper infrastructure, in order to train and use Deep Nets in a real-time environment.
