You may already know that Algorithmia hosts scalable deep learning models. If you are a developer, you’ve seen how easy it is to run over 3,000 microservices through any of our supported languages and frameworks. But sometimes it’s nice just to play with a simple demo. The Deep Fashion microservice...

When we look at an image, it’s fairly easy to detect the horizon line. For computers, this task is somewhat more difficult: they need to understand the basic structure of the image, locate edges which might indicate a horizon, and pare out the edges which do not matter. Fortunately, Algorithmia boils...
