My Deep Learning Kickstarter will go live on Wednesday, January 18th at 10AM EST

I’ve got some exciting news to share today!

My Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python Kickstarter campaign is set to launch in exactly one week on Wednesday, January 18th at 10AM EST.


This book has only goal — to help developers, researchers, and students just like yourself become experts in deep learning for image recognition and classification.

Whether this is the first time you’ve worked with machine learning and neural, networks or you’re already a seasoned deep learning practitionerDeep Learning for Computer Vision with Python is engineered from the ground up to help you reach expert status.

Inside this book you’ll find:

  • Super practical walkthroughs that present solutions to actual, real-world image classification problems, challenges, and competitions.
  • Hands-on tutorials (with lots of code) that not only show you the algorithms behind deep learning for computer vision, but their implementations as well.
  • A no-bullshit teaching style that is guaranteed to cut through all the cruft and help you master deep learning for image understanding and visual recognition.

As a heads up, over the next 7 days I’ll be posting a few more announcements that you won’t want to miss, including:

Thursday, January 12th:

A sneak preview of the Kickstarter campaign, including a demo video of what you’ll find inside the book.

Friday, January 13th:

The Table of Contents for Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python. This book is extensive, covering the basics of deep learning all the way up to training large-scale networks on the massive ImageNet dataset. You won’t want to miss this list!

Monday, January 16th:

The full list of Kickstarter rewards (including early bird discounts) so you can plan ahead for which reward you want when the Kickstarter launches.

won’t be posting this list publicly — this reward list is only for PyImageSearch readers who are part of the PyImageSearch Newsletter.

Tuesday, January 17th:

Please keep in mind that this book is already getting a lot of attention, so there will be multiple people in line for each reward level when the Kickstarter campaign launches on Wednesday the 18th. To help ensure you get the reward you want, I’ll be sharing tips and tricks you can use to ensure you’re first in line.

Again, I won’t be posting this publicly either. Make sure you signup for the PyImageSearch Newsletter to receive these tips and tricks to ensure you’re at the front of the line.

Wednesday, January 18th:

The Kickstarter campaign link that you can use to claim your copy of Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python.

To be notified when these announcements go live, be sure to signup for the Kickstarter notification list!

    Hi Sir
    I just wondering this book will be with image processing or computer vision?

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 12, 2017 at 7:56 am #

      The primary focus of the book will be on how to apply deep learning to computer vision tasks such as image classification, object detection, etc.

      Thanks Don!

  6. Horelvis January 15, 2017 at 6:28 am #

    This looks good! I am very enthusiastic with your new book, you can count on me

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 15, 2017 at 12:02 pm #

      Thank you for the support Horelvis, I appreciate it! 🙂

  7. Siddharth January 15, 2017 at 12:59 pm #

    How can i avail this new book?

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 16, 2017 at 8:14 am #

      Hey Siddharth — I’ll be posting the link to back the Kickstarter campaign on Wednesday, January 18th at 10AM EST. If you are also on the PyImageSearch email list you’ll receive an email notification when the Kickstarter goes live as well.

  8. Shaunak De January 16, 2017 at 12:06 pm #

    Can’t wait. I’m all ready with my credit card to back you! Haha!

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 16, 2017 at 1:57 pm #

      Thank you for all the support! Have a great day my friend. 🙂

    I saw your video abut Kickstarter campaign I am very happy for your books me and my friends are waiting for Jan 18th , please iam little bit confused Please give some suggestions according 3bundles and I am very interested to learn deep learning but I am beginner which bundle that you suggest

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 16, 2017 at 1:56 pm #

      If you are just getting started with deep learning and simply want to understand the basics of neural networks and deep learning, go with the Starter Bundle. If you want a more in-depth dive and study more advanced concepts, go with the Practitioner Bundle. If you want the complete package, go with the ImageNet Bundle.

  10. cing January 16, 2017 at 7:48 pm #

    What are the tools and minimum computer spec requirements for implementing the techniques?

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 17, 2017 at 8:46 am #

      It depends on which bundle you go with. All examples in the Starter Bundle are intended to work with your CPU (although a GPU can certainly speed up training). The majority of the examples in the Practitioner Bundle will work with a CPU as well, although you should ideally be using the GPU since training times will increase dramatically. For the ImageNet Bundle, a GPU is absolutely required, ideally one with 8-12GB of memory. Multiple GPUs would also be preferred for the ImageNet Bundle.

    Waiting for Wednesday, January 18th at 10AM EST…………..

    • Adrian Rosebrock January 17, 2017 at 8:45 am #

      It will be a pleasure to have you on the Kickstarter backer list, Leena! Let me know if you have any questions.

    Congratulations Adrian! Waiting for the link

      Thanks Shankar, only a few more hours to go now!

    […] A couple of days ago I mentioned that on Wednesday, January 18th at 10AM EST I am launching a Kickstarter to fund my new book — Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python. […]

Before you leave a comment...

Hey, Adrian here, author of the PyImageSearch blog. I'd love to hear from you, but before you submit a comment, please follow these guidelines:

  1. If you have a question, read the comments first. You should also search this page (i.e., ctrl + f) for keywords related to your question. It's likely that I have already addressed your question in the comments.
  2. If you are copying and pasting code/terminal output, please don't. Reviewing another programmers’ code is a very time consuming and tedious task, and due to the volume of emails and contact requests I receive, I simply cannot do it.
  3. Be respectful of the space. I put a lot of my own personal time into creating these free weekly tutorials. On average, each tutorial takes me 15-20 hours to put together. I love offering these guides to you and I take pride in the content I create. Therefore, I will not approve comments that include large code blocks/terminal output as it destroys the formatting of the page. Kindly be respectful of this space.
  4. Be patient. I receive 200+ comments and emails per day. Due to spam, and my desire to personally answer as many questions as I can, I hand moderate all new comments (typically once per week). I try to answer as many questions as I can, but I'm only one person. Please don't be offended if I cannot get to your question
  5. Do you need priority support? Consider purchasing one of my books and courses. I place customer questions and emails in a separate, special priority queue and answer them first. If you are a customer of mine you will receive a guaranteed response from me. If there's any time left over, I focus on the community at large and attempt to answer as many of those questions as I possibly can.

Thank you for keeping these guidelines in mind before submitting your comment.
