Coming up with useful applications of Machine Learning can be an exciting and complicated problem. Sure, I can do the same linear regression problem everyone does, with the same data, but if I’m not excited about what I’m creating, how can I expect anyone else to be interested?
Then I got the idea, what about NSFW detection for client and server! This could cut down on work for teams, as well as provide a high-profile project for others.
Since creating the NSFW model, throngs of people have tweeted, and shown up to add pull requests. I’ll even be Keynoting in Italy, to review the project.
One common request, a lot of people keep asking for the training data. I’m both entertained and engaged in all the interactions in this project. Never would I have assumed so many people would help me learn, challenge me to grow, and take interest in my project.
Because of this, I’ve documented the entire project here: https://medium.freecodecamp.org/how-to-set-up-nsfw-content-detection-with-machine-learning-229a9725829c
