Abstract

Many problems combine Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision.  Sharing his experience of having led over a hundred applied AI projects at Insight, Emmanuel will give a step by step tutorial on how to build a semantic search engine for text and images, with code included! The approaches presented extend naturally to other applications such as image and video captioning, reading text from videos, selecting optimal thumbnails and generating code from sketches of websites (all projects that were tackled at Insight), and more!
