Distributing on-device machine learning models with tags and metadata

Articles

Developers using Fritz AI can now add tags and metadata to on-device machine learning models. Models can be queried by tags and loaded dynamically via the iOS and Android SDKs, giving you more control over distribution and usage.

Deliver models to users based on hardware, location, software environment, or any other attribute.

Real-Time Style Transfer for iOS— Transform your photos and videos into masterpieces

Articles

Neural networks have many practical use cases, from identifying street signs and people in self-driving cars to recognizing text and transcribing audio.

But one of the more fun use cases is applying the “style” of one image to another. Neural networks can be trained to tease apart the content of a painting from the style of a painting.

The results can then be applied to any image. The result is a set of fun photo filters that replicate famous paintings.

Creating a 17 KB style transfer model with layer pruning and quantization

Articles

There are now a bunch of off-the-shelf tools for training artistic style transfer models and thousands of open source implementations. Most use a variation of the network architecture described by Johnson et al to perform fast, feed-forward stylization.

As a result, the majority of the style transfer models you find are the same size: 7MB. That’s not an unreasonably large asset to add to your application, but it’s also not insignificant.

Research suggests that neural networks are often way larger than they need to be—that many of the millions of weights they contain are insignificant and needlessly precise. So I wondered: What’s the smallest model I can create that still reliably performs style transfer?
