Can I train the Excire AI myself?

Unfortunately this is not possible. But this is not due to Excire Foto, but much more to the methods that are currently used for image analysis. These methods were developed with several million photos trained on special hardware.

All this happens in one complex Offline process, which takes several days. Only in this way can the maximum detection performance, whereby we would like to point out that our solution is a compromise between best detection performance and minimum runtime is because our software does not run in a cloud, but on customer computers.

Unfortunately, such procedures cannot be trained with just a few examples, or if this happens the detection performance is (often) unacceptable.
