Search results for "Convolutional Neural Network"

I’m writing a book on Deep Learning and Convolutional Neural Networks (and I need your advice).

You may have heard me mention it in a passing comment on the PyImageSearch blog… Maybe I even hinted at it in a 1-on-1 email… Or perhaps you simply saw the writing on the wall due to the recent uptick in Deep Learning/Neural Network tutorials here on the blog… But I’m here today to tell […]

LeNet – Convolutional Neural Network in Python

In today’s blog post, we are going to implement our first Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) — LeNet — using Python and the Keras deep learning package. The LeNet architecture was first introduced by LeCun et al. in their 1998 paper, Gradient-Based Learning Applied to Document Recognition. As the name of the paper suggests, the authors’ implementation of LeNet was used […]

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 […]

Getting started with the Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick

Let me ask you three questions: What if you could could run state-of-the-art neural networks on a USB stick? What if you could see over 10x performance on this USB stick compared to your CPU? And what if this entire device costs under $100? Sound interesting? Enter Intel’s Movidius Neural Compute Stick (NCS). Raspberry Pi […]

Label smoothing with Keras, TensorFlow, and Deep Learning

In this tutorial, you will learn two ways to implement label smoothing using Keras, TensorFlow, and Deep Learning. When training your own custom deep neural networks there are two critical questions that you should constantly be asking yourself: Am I overfitting to my training data? Will my model generalize to data outside my training and […]

Human Activity Recognition with OpenCV and Deep Learning

In this tutorial you will learn how to perform Human Activity Recognition with OpenCV and Deep Learning. Our human activity recognition model can recognize over 400 activities with 78.4-94.5% accuracy (depending on the task). A sample of the activities can be seen below: archery arm wrestling baking cookies counting money driving tractor eating hotdog flying […]

An interview with Paul Lee – Doctor, Cardiologist and Deep Learning Researcher

In today’s blog post, I interview Dr. Paul Lee, a PyImageSearch reader and interventional cardiologist affiliated with NY Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Dr. Lee recently presented his research at the prestigious American Heart Association Scientific Session in Philadelphia, PA where he demonstrated how Convolutional Neural Networks can: Automatically analyze and interpret coronary angiograms Detect […]
