Train first image classification model with Firebase ML Kit
For more than a year now, Firebase – backend platform for mobile and web development, has ML Kit SDK in its portfolio. Thanks to this feature, it is way easier to implement machine learning solutions in mobile apps, regardless of ML skills we have. With APIs like Text Recognition or Image Labeling, we can add those functionalities to our app with a couple of lines of code.
ML Kit also provides a simple way for plugging-in custom machine learning solutions – we provide TensorFlow Lite model, and Firebase is responsible for deploying it into our app – multiplatform (Android and iOS), offline or online (model can be bundled with app on downloaded on-demand in runtime), with a simplified code for implementing an interpreter.
