I'm Frank, an German technology enthusiast and entrepreneur. I enjoy working on anything web (or mobile) based and have built products that have reached millions.
Addwalk was my start into Machine Learning. The idea behind the service is to detect clothing on images and videos
to find perfect matching products from a big database. When starting in 2014 we started using manual tagging
and tried to outsource it without success - it was cost intense and the quality was not that good as expected.
But since then we gathered a lot of training data which is now empowering our Deep Learning algorithms. That pipeline
works 100% automatic and gives the product matches a very high accuracy.
The service is used to deliver an interactive widget to publisher webpages to add an "shop the look"-feature to their images and videos. At average we handled more than 50M impressions per month.
Together with two partners we opened one of the first Coworking Spaces in the towncenter of Münster. We brought for three years entrepreneurial spirit into an old around 600 year old building and make the life for many of freelancers a lot more easier.
