Building an Image Recognition App in Javascript using Pinecone, Hugging Face, and Vercel

The world of AI is rapidly expanding, and now the JavaScript/TypeScript ecosystem is joining in. With the emergence of tools like Pinecone, HuggingFace, OpenAI, Cohere, and many others, JavaScript developers can create AI applications more quickly, addressing new challenges that were once exclusive to machine learning engineers and data scientists.

Traditionally, Python has been the go-to language for AI/ML solutions. In many cases, the product of this type of code is a Python notebook. But as we all know, creating full-fledged AI applications is usually more involved, especially when we need our applications to be commercial grade. It requires us to think of the solution in a much more holistic way.
