I am totally new to machine learing. I was told that we cannot combine text and image analyzer into one API, is that true? Can an app be developed to combine text and image Instagram Sentiment Analyzer w/Python, TensorFlow? Any guidance on how to go about doing it in laymans terms or example code will be appreciated.
That is not technically correct. An API can have any entry point that you wish, including separate image and text analysis entry points.
Text and images are separate kinds of things, and must be processed seperately. I.e. it doesn’t “make sense” to take a single “glop” of mixed images and text, and try to perform both text and image analysis on it. Unless, of course, you have some sort of means to distinquish between the text and image portions of the “glop”. In that case, you are returning two different kinds of results (text analysis and image analysis) from the same API call, which isn’t the “best” design.
A third case is where you have images which might contain text, then you need to perform OCR on the image to get the text, in order to perform text analysis.
Given a single API, which of those 3 operations are you going to perform? _Can_ you perform all of them?
It’s difficult to suggest samples etc unless we have a better idea of the inputs and requirements.
