This is great! Going to try this out

Can we not just throw NNs at things and call it AI?

Please don't post shallow dismissals to HN, especially of other people's work. This is in the main site guidelines: https://news.ycombinator.com/newsguidelines.html. It would be good to read the Show HN guidelines too: https://news.ycombinator.com/showhn.html.

My comment is not a "shallow dismissal" of the work presented. In fact i have created solutions for the exact same problem in a similar way. The comment was exclusively pointing out that the solution and tools used in it, should not be classified as AI.

I think Cassie Kozyrkov summed this up well https://becominghuman.ai/are-you-using-the-term-ai-incorrect... .

In industry we are converging on calling the types of models you train on known engineered features as ML. When you don't know what the features should be but just want a model that can be supervised on raw data its called AI.

Right, all in all it is a CNN.
