Sobre Challpix

Challpix is a challenge-based, photo-sharing social network whose purpose is to bring back the naive, unfiltered and innocent way of visual expression. On Challpix, actions are more personal, even if you can follow anyone from the network, we aim to strengthen the existing friendships through challenges. We believe that challenging somebody is the purest form of play and a challenge that involves taking photos can be very creative. Challpix is not about the highlights of your day, it is about living the moment. Not enough, want to know more? Oh, you so geeky. Moreover, the social network is built for SCIENCE! We are trying to build a huge dataset of photos that can be mined or used to train neural networks. We found out that the name of challenges can act as noisy labels, each challenge describing a context, not just a keyword like a hashtag (ex. Instagram #s). Nowadays, neural networks are all the fuss and probably you already know that data can improve object recognition, context extraction and many other things. For each photo you take on Challpix, you are doing it for science, improving artificial intelligence! Challpix is trying to share the data with everybody. Academia, NGOs and other not-for-profit entities will be able to access our data free of charge. We are also enterprise-oriented, we planned to offer in the future pay-per-use plans for businesses. Imagine this, you are a NGO that is trying to find all the uncollected garbage around Bucharest and map the location of it. All you have to do is to make a challenge and hopefully some angry people will take photos of the garbage, so the geolocation will be stored. With the data you can build an interactive map that later can be used to make a(nother) point on why the mayor sucks. It’s great, as Trump would have said. Through Challpix you are improving your already smart city (like the Skynet-automated Bucharest) without moving a finger, unbelievable! Think of other examples, mapping the nests of birds. Taking photo of strange weather phenomena, precipitation, including rain, freezing rain, drizzle, freezing drizzle, snow, ice pellets and mixed rain observed, invasive animals in your neighborhood (Pokemons not applicable). The possibilities are endless. Your homework now is to think of a use case. From another business perspective, you can use Challpix in the same way you are now using Snapchat, Instagram, etc. to promote your products and brands. The upcoming campaign feature will help you organizing photo contests.
