A user guide for testing Sally at sally.propmix.io
Sally is a cognitive image advisory service that identifies property information from listing images. Sally automates the analysis of listing photos to:
- Identify types of rooms – kitchen, family room, dining, game room, basement, etc
- Identify objects in a room – brick fireplace, type of refrigerator, type of counter tops, number of sinks, etc.
- Extract detailed property information from the photos
Sally is a neural network engine trained on terabytes of real estate imagery and it continues to learn how to perform deeper analysis. After an initial 3-month training period Sally started classifying images into different room types. After another 6-months of rigorous research, redesign, and retraining, she can now pickup objects in a room to help improve your listing data.

If the input ImageType is available in the data then the API will respond with corresponding thumbnail image of that property, else the Thumbnail will be displayed on the basis of predefined priority.
