Building a Smart AI Image Search Tool Using React Part 2

In our first article, we built a part of the front-end of our image search tool with the focus mainly on the parent App.js stateful component.

In this article - part two of a series - we will continue developing a AI image Search App, in which users can search for content in an image, not just the description. The app is built with React for UI interaction, Cloudinary for image upload and management and Algolia for search.

Better Search Ranking Through Image Quality Improvement

Search ranking algorithms utilize various signals to determine how websites rank against each other on the internet either via desktop or mobile searches. One such signal is Site speed. In 2010, Google introduced Site speed as a signal in their search ranking algorithms. However, this only applied to web search ranking. Starting in July 2018, site speed will be a ranking factor of mobile searches. This change is another signal that developers must wake up and focus on improving the performance of their applications, since speed and load time affects a user’s experience of your page.

Building a Smart AI Image Search Tool Using React Part 1

What if we could create an AI image search service? Type in a word and get images with titles or descriptions matching our search. Better yet, what if we could create an AI image search service but rather than matching just titles and image description, we can search for something in an image, regardless of the given image title or description. For example, find one with a dog in it, or those that may have a street lamp or a bus (more like an image search tool).

Build a WhatsApp Clone with Automatic Image Optimization

In the previous post, we showed how to upload images to a Cloudinary server. In this part, we will play with some of the features we see on the WhatsApp technology. After you or your users have uploaded image assets to Cloudinary, you can deliver them via dynamic URLs. You can include instructions in your dynamic URLs that tell Cloudinary to manipulate your assets using a set of transformation parameters. All image manipulations and image optimizations are performed automatically in the cloud and your transformed assets are automatically optimized before they are routed through a fast CDN to the end user for an optimal user experience. For example, you can resize and crop, add overlays, blur or pixelate faces, apply a variety of special effects and filters, and apply settings to optimize your images and to deliver them responsively.

iOS Developer Camp: The Dog House

iOS Developer Camp: The Dog House

Confession: I’m kind of addicted to hackathons. Ever since graduating from Coding Dojo earlier this year, I’ve been on the hunt for new places to expand my skills and meet new people in the tech space. iOS Developer Camp’s 10th Anniversary event bowled me over. Initially, because of its length. 48 hours? Yeesh. I had no idea that those 48 hours would change my life. But let’s first get a little backstory on my favorite topic: dogs.

Mastering the Pivot

Mastering the Pivot

For 48 hours, over a hundred strangers worked together to form over twenty great teams to demonstrate shared ideas in working form. Our theme for the event was The Pivot, as we approach an inflection point in the tech community from a so-called “broligarchy” to a more representative culture. This was Developer Camp’s 10th Anniversary event, and we brought together our most diverse group of participants ever:
