My First AI Application

I am not Data or AI scientist, I am just a Developer. I tried to learn AI in my free time. There are a lot of information from Internet. After reading many many articles and source codes, I still did not find the approach. I confused by many AI algorithms as CNN, Logistic Regresstion, K-Tree, N-Tree …  As you know, I am a developer, so I did not understand at all. :).

Finally, I find the solution. The thing I need just Tensorflow.

To start, I try to build AI that can classify Dog/Cat Image. I followed the steps below.

Step 0 – Installation

I installed Tensorflow on my Ubuntu 14.04 Server by commands:

To understand this, you have to understand Python, PIP and Virtualenv

Step 1 – The Samples

I search Dog/Cat Image on Google Image. After that, I resize/save them to my local storage.

Please see link:

Step 2 – Training

After having the samples, I started to research to train my AI. I found the solution here:

It was copy from Tensorflow Example:

Now, I run command to train my AI by using Inception V3 Model and my Training Dataset

The most import thing is the output file output/retrained_graph.pd. This is the trained model file, I will use this file for my AI.

Step 3 – AI Service

After having the trained model file. I wrote the AI Service. I used Flask Framework to handle uploading image. When user uploads a image, my AI service will check it is CAT or DOG. Please see the source code:

For the details, see file and

Step 4 – Deployment

Now, everything is reading to deploy. I chose Heroku to run my AI service

Finally, we have a simple AI, we understand how it works, how to train it and what is most important thing we need to build a AI.

Thanks for your reading!

  • An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who had been conducting
    a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast simply because I stumbled upon it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about
    this subject here on your internet site.
