Project: Smart Image Auto-cropping


The goal of this project is to find the optimal region of an image to crop based on its content.

Main Results in Detail

There were three approaches covered for recognizing the most important part of an image: neural network sensitivity maps, image keypoints and real-time object detection (YOLO).

Future Work

Future work may consist of building a neural network from scratch using public datasets (CAT2000, MIT300) and trying to get a high score.
