Implementation of a gender recognition algorithm using Xception NN

Project by Jeremy


In the ecosystem of products from iCarbonX, the Smart Mirror is a connected mirror to help people to do gym exercises, give precise measurements of the body and more… For a company product, it’s needed to detect the gender of the person just by using its picture. Project requirement is starting from scratch, build a model using Xception, RGB & Depth images.



  • Lack of data / CNN architecture
  • Implement it on product

Achievements (according to KPIs)

  • High Resolution model
  • Increase the dataset using different flows ( youtube scraping & Face detector)
  • Model tested on Mirror -> Testing step before release


Further development

Make a lighter model to be more responsive, detect age to be careful on predictions on kids (challenging part)
