Pixide is a global photo contest app that allows amateur photographers to showcase and compete with their photos.
With all user-generated content automatically categorized through Clarifai’s API, Pixide is then able to pair images of similar subject matter and surface them to users to vote on through the slick contest interface. This ensures that the rating mechanics enable users to discover the “best” photos of the community and keep them coming back for more.
Pixide’s CEO and Co-Founder, Stefano Giacone, tested computer vision APIs like Imagga, Microsoft Computer Vision API, and Google Cloud Vision API before deciding that Clarifai offered the best possible solution for launching his mobile app. He selected Clarifai based on its superior accuracy, customer support, easy-to-follow documentation and starters, and multi-language support. With a product team of six people, Stefano was able to integrate Clarifai in just a couple of days and take Pixide from concept to production rollout in nine months.
