Compiling OpenCV with CUDA support

Alight, so you have the NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit and cuDNN library installed on your GPU-enabled system. What next? Let’s get OpenCV installed with CUDA support as well. While OpenCV itself doesn’t play a critical role in deep learning, it is used by other deep learning libraries such as Caffe, specifically in “utility” programs (such as building a dataset […]

Generating art with guided deep dreaming.

One of the main benefits of the bat-country Python package for deep dreaming and visualization is its ease of use, extensibility, and customization. And let me tell you, that customization really came in handy last Friday when the Google Research team released an update to their deep dream work, demonstrating a method to “guide” your input images […]

bat-country: an extendible, lightweight Python package for deep dreaming with Caffe and Convolutional Neural Networks

We can’t stop here, this is bat country. Just a few days ago, the Google Research blog published a post demonstrating a unique, interesting, and perhaps even disturbing method to visualize what’s going inside the layers of a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). Note: Before you go, I suggest taking a look at the images generated using […]
