And that’s it! Our initial prototype is complete. There’s plenty left to be done such as model validation, tests to confirm expected performance after import to iOS and a sleeker/more friendly UI. Nonetheless, I hope this serves as a useful reference for your mobile machine learning deployment endeavors.
New and improved tools continue to make mobile pursuits more widely accessible to the data science community and there are many creative opportunities waiting to be claimed in the mobile space. As mobile technology is inherently multi-media, it provides a richness of data types (e.g. audio, video, movement and location) along with unique point of use applications to expand one’s data science toolkit.
As always, I welcome any feedback or suggestions.
Thanks for reading!
