Now, app to help users select the 'right' beer
WhichBeers is a new app that uses image recognition and a database of beer reviews to give you a personalized recommendation.
According to TechCrunch, the app would allow users to take a picture and then annotate it with recommendations. Gradually it would learn users preferences over time and then pull relevant reviews from famous beer review sites.
The presenters, Andrew Kae and Xiaoan Yan said that they faced some problems in designing the app, as the image dataset for beer is not huge.
They added that many stores put their beers into large refrigerators with glass in front of them which adds lots of shadows and reflections, that makes the image recognition harder, the report added.
