This was my final project for my Mobile Development course at Fanshawe College. We were tasked with creating an application that used one of Google’s Firebase Machine Learning models.

I decided to use their image tagging to recognize various animals from the African section of the Toronto Zoo. This required me to train a custom model for recognizing specific animals. The app didn’t just recognize images however, it also displayed information about each animal. I wrote 7 pages of trivia and facts for this app. I also included links to other sites and organizations like the World Wide Fund for Nature and Wikipedia.

The application would also remember which animals had been previously photographed and would save the photo. For each animal I created a custom icon that was simple but conveyed their uniqueness.
