In addition to helping you find your next home, PadMapper helps you rent out your own place or find a roommate with Post A Pad. With access to millions of apartments and homes and millions of users per month, PadMapper (now part of the Zumper family) enables anyone to easily favorite, share, filter and message listings.
For the landlord or person posting a spare room, PadMapper’s iPhone app now leverages the power of CoreML to analyze uploaded photos and suggest relevant amenities, as well as recommend the best order to present photos based on what would be most attractive to users and get the best response possible.
The introduction of machine learning to our iOS app was inspired by a trip to WWDC earlier this year taken by developer Keith Lee. Feeling inspired after the conference, Keith knew that he had to build something using the new technology that was CoreML. A few weeks later, as part of the Zumper & PadMapper quarterly internal hackathon, he built the feature that thousands of users know and use today.
Download PadMapper on the App Store to take advantage of CoreML and intelligently rent out your room. Check out a sneak peek of how it works below.
