Has anyone used Clarifai to classify grey scale or monochrome images. At present i am obtaining images from a grey scale/monochrome camera which outputs 12 bit values for each pixel. I have not seen anywhere what file format Clarifai would accept that would contain monochrome images. Would splitting the 12 bit values into an 8 bit and a 4 bit value and then putting these values into say the red and green channels of an RGB based file format leaving the blue channel always at zero. Would this work or is there some other way?
Note that I am looking at using a custom model here and would not expect existing models to be able to interpret the monochrome data.
