Hmm, @harthvader has written some impressive neural network, machine learning, and image detection stuff, shared on her GitHub — wait, she’s combined these things into a JavaScript cat-detecting routine?! Okay, that wins.

var cats = kittydar.detectCats(canvas);
console.log(“there are”, cats.length, “cats in this photo”);
// { x: 30, y: 200, width: 140, height: 140 }

You can try out Kittydar here.
