Show HN: Turn Memories into Art with neural-style (artif.ai)

Hello HN!

The goal of Artifai is to help people generate art from photos. I had a problem: My walls were bare. I wanted to decorate them with memories, but I wanted the decorations to be artistic at the same time.

This lead me to discover neural-style, an algorithm that takes two images as input, and copies the style from one onto the other while retaining its content. Neural-style lets you take a meaningful photo and turn it into awesome art! There were several implementations available on Github, but I didn't see a way for non-technical users to easily use it and have the result shipped to their home. And so I began building Artifai with a group of friends; We are a group of university students and this was our first fullstack app!

You can read more about the technical details here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Q63JH2CnRWZbhO7oDHEeAWJT...

Thanks for checking it out and let us know if you have any feedback! :)
