Generating User Interface Code From Images Using Machine Learning

Date: May 27, 2017 Published by

  • As machine learning matures, we’re finding more and more applications for the technology, beyond the niche and novelty.
  • It’s even starting to encroach on the jobs of designers and programmers, if Tony Beltramelli’s research project “pix2code” is anything to go by.
  • Of course, the idea behind pix2code is to simply show what’s possible — it’s in no way ready for prime time.
  • It could also open doors for artists who want to get into web development, but are still refining their HTML and CSS skills.
  • If you’re after a more detailed explanation of how it works, there’s a dedicated page with the research paper and a (currently empty) GitHub repo available.
