I'm a student from Chennai, India and my project is going to be related to performing image processing on the images on commons.wikimedia to automate categorization. DrTrigon had made the script catimages.py a few years ago which was made in the old pywikipedia-bot framework. I'll be working towards updating the script to the pywikibot-core framework, updating it's dependencies, and using newer techniques when possible.

catimages.py is a script that analyzes an image using various computer vision algorithms and allots categories to the image on commons. For example, consider algorithms that detect faces, barcodes, etc. The script uses these to categorize images to Category:Unidentified People, Category:Barcode, and so on.

If you have any suggestions and categorizations you think might be useful to you, drop in at #gsoc-catimages on freenode or my talk page[0]. You can find out more about me on User:AbdealiJK[1] and about the project at T129611[2].
