Optimizing Image Optimization with Machine Learning

At wao.io we are, among other things, concerned about the time customers wait for your website. One key factor to speed things up is the amount of data that needs to be transferred – the best bytes are those which need not to be sent. Because images make up a large fraction of the transmitted data we transcode images before they are delivered to browsers. To make sure that the transcoding does not affect the image quality, we employ Automatic Image Quality Assessment (AIQA) procedure.

To further improve the efficiency of the transcoding, we combine the transcoding with a machine learning pipeline and see a significant decrease of data that is transmitted.
