O Alfredo é uma startup especializada em inteligência artificial que pretende revolucionar o mercado imobiliário através do desenvolvimento de tecnologias de big data e machine learning. Tem como objectivo central dotar os agentes que trabalham neste campo com ferramentas que lhes permitam actuar com rapidez, segurança e transparência.
O mercado imobiliário nacional caracteriza-se pela falta de transparência no acesso e tratamento de dados. Uma situação decorrente da dispersão e falta de estruturação da informação disponível, que tem pouca qualidade e que chega com atraso em relação às condições do mercado. …
To make thiseyedoesnotexist I had to generate a dataset suitable for generative adversarial training. This meant I had to find a way to sort thousands of unlabeled images using an automatic unsupervised method. I didn’t know that in the beginning, but I discovered in the process. This story is a recipe for that procedure.
I like to use and create unique datasets so I can develop my intuition the fullest.
Since I had zero experience with generative adversarial networks, I thought I should document some problems I had to overcome.
Quoting Wikipedia: “A generative adversarial network (GAN) is a class of machine learning systems. Two neural networks contest with each other in a zero-sum game framework. This technique can generate photographs that look at least superficially authentic to human observers, having many realistic characteristics. It is a form of unsupervised learning.” …

A couple of weeks ago I was talking to my girlfriend. She had to do a university assignment about a new and emerging machine learning technology which would be impactful in the future. She asked me:
What’s poppin in machine learning right now?
I couldn’t think of anything else that was visual enough so I said:
Actually, there is this cool new thing called generative adversarial networks
My head started going a thousand miles — “how the hell am I going to explain this stuff?” …
