Claim this Bounty: Build an Image Classifier

July 19, 2016 / Uncategorized

If you haven’t already played around with Custom Collections, now is a good time to get started — we’re offering a bounty for the best new image classifier created with our Custom Collections API.

Custom Collections is one of our new training APIs that allows you to build your own machine learning model with roughly 100x less data than typically required. And no, you don’t need to know how to build a neural network to do it. It’s all about being clever with your data. Check out our docs to learn more.

Deadline: September 1, 2016 at 11:59PM PST
Prize: 100,000 indico API calls, a feature on our website, and a sweet indico t-shirt
Submissions: Email to


  1. Use the indico Custom Collection API to create your image classifier.
  2. Create some kind of demo — a video or an app — to show off your work!

What will we be looking for in these classifiers to determine the winner?

  • Accuracy
  • Real world application
  • Difficulty of task


Need inspiration? Custom Collection can determine if a piece of clothing is patterned or solid, identify plants that are ready for harvest, filter out poorly angled photos…think about what problems involve recognizing patterns in images, and build from there!
