Configuring Ubuntu for deep learning with Python

When it comes to learning new technology such as deep learning, configuring your development environment tends to be half the battle. Different operating systems, hardware, dependencies, and the actual libraries themselves can lead to many headaches before you’re even able to get started studying deep learning. These issues are further compounded by the speed of […]

Pre-configured Amazon AWS deep learning AMI with Python

The Ubuntu VirtualBox virtual machine that comes with my book, Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python, includes all the necessary deep learning and computer vision libraries you need (such as Keras, TensorFlow, scikit-learn, scikit-image, OpenCV, etc.) pre-installed. However, while the deep learning virtual machine is easy to use, it also has a number of drawbacks, […]

Deep Learning with OpenCV

Two weeks ago OpenCV 3.3 was officially released, bringing with it a highly improved deep learning ( dnn ) module. This module now supports a number of deep learning frameworks, including Caffe, TensorFlow, and Torch/PyTorch. Furthermore, this API for using pre-trained deep learning models is compatible with both the C++ API and the Python bindings, making it […]

Long exposure with OpenCV and Python

One of my favorite photography techniques is long exposure, the process of creating a photo that shows the effect of passing time, something that traditional photography does not capture. When applying this technique, water becomes silky smooth, stars in a night sky leave light trails as the earth rotates, and car headlights/taillights illuminate highways in […]
