Rijks x AWS

Attempt at using AWS facial recognition to find look-a-likes in the Rijksmuseum's art collection.

Step 1: create a database of objects

Download all the images to a folder by bundle rake download_individual_json

After that, bundle rake combine_json will generate a single combined.json with the object IDs and image URLs. The database is checked in

Step 2: download images

Start a EC2 instance. I chose a t2.micro. SSH into the machine and run:

git clone https://github.com/tijmenb/rijksmuseum-aws-experiment.git
cd rijksmuseum-aws-experiment
ruby download-images.rb

This will take a lot of time.

Step 3: move images to S3

You can’t perform that action at this time.
