Introduction to Video Transform

At Algorithmia, we have strived to develop a variety of powerful and useful image transformation algorithms that utilize cutting-edge machine learning techniques. These are the building blocks which let any developer build more complex algorithms and solve harder problems, regardless of their preferred language and development platform.

Video Transform is a direct extension of this work. It allows users to transform videos on a frame-by-frame basis, using any existing or future image transformation algorithm on the Algorithmia marketplace. Read More…

Introduction to Color Scheme Extraction

An algorithm for color scheme extractionAs an artist, inspiration can come from anywhere: a particular texture, a design, or even a color scheme.

Instead of spending hours painstakingly extracting the hex codes from all of the important sections of an image, what if there was a way to automatically extract the most important parts of an image?

Color Scheme extraction is able to find the most relevant colors in seconds.

Introduction to Language Identification

Identifying the language of text programmatically
Quick, what languages are these two sentences written in:

“Hey bana bir sorununuz olur mu?”

What about this one?

“Halló ég er með vandamál getur þú hjálpað mér?”

Not easy, right?

Figuring out a document’s source language is an essential first step for many cross-language tools and that’s why we’ve implemented a Language Identification algorithm. Read More…

Introduction to Image Saliency Detection

An algorithm for saliency detectionWhenever we look at a photo or watch a video, we always notice certain things over others. This could be a person’s face, or a sports car, or even a symbol that is located in the corner of a video.
