Restaurant Photo Classification Algorithm and Business Viability Tool

TripAdvisor users write reviews and upload photos from their various restaurant visits. These photos can be categorized/analyzed to reveal information about the restaurant's menu, dishes, pricing, etc. The first step in this analysis is the classification of photos into simple, broad groups: food, drinks, menus, inside and outside photos of the establishment. Students' goal for this project was to build an image classifier using Convolutional Neural Networks and images aquired by the students themselves.
