HistoNet (beta)

An image histogram is a type of histogram that acts as a graphical representation of the tonal distribution in a digital image. It plots the number of pixels for each tonal value. By looking at the histogram for a specific image a viewer will be able to judge the entire tonal distribution at a glance.

This project aims to create a tool to classify imgaes by analyzing histograms using a neural network. I took the idea from Green Dam Youth Escort. Green Dam recognizes pornographic images by analyzing skin-coloured regions, complemented by human face recognition. However, according to a Southern Weekly article, the software is incapable of recognizing pictures of nudity featuring black or red-skinned characters but sensitive enough to images with large patches of yellow that it censors promotional images of the film Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties. Thats why I decided to add the neural network.

This project still very beta! And needs your colaboration! Thanks!
