Video classification with Keras and Deep Learning

In this tutorial, you will learn how to perform video classification using Keras, Python, and Deep Learning. Specifically, you will learn: The difference between video classification and standard image classification How to train a Convolutional Neural Network using Keras for image classification How to take that CNN and then use it for video classification How […]

Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD) with Python

In last week’s blog post, we discussed gradient descent, a first-order optimization algorithm that can be used to learn a set of classifier coefficients for parameterized learning. However, the “vanilla” implementation of gradient descent can be prohibitively slow to run on large datasets — in fact, it can even be considered computationally wasteful. Instead, we should apply Stochastic […]

Understanding regularization for image classification and machine learning

In previous tutorials, I’ve discussed two important loss functions: Multi-class SVM loss and cross-entropy loss (which we usually refer to in conjunction with Softmax classifiers). In order to to keep our discussions of these loss functions straightforward, I purposely left out an important component: regularization. While our loss function allows us to determine how well (or poorly) our […]

Softmax Classifiers Explained

Last week, we discussed Multi-class SVM loss; specifically, the hinge loss and squared hinge loss functions. A loss function, in the context of Machine Learning and Deep Learning, allows us to quantify how “good” or “bad” a given classification function (also called a “scoring function”) is at correctly classifying data points in our dataset. However, […]

Multi-class SVM Loss

A couple weeks ago,we discussed the concepts of both linear classification and parameterized learning. This type of learning allows us to take a set of input data and class labels, and actually learn a function that maps the input to the output predictions, simply by defining a set of parameters and optimizing over them. Our linear classification tutorial focused […]

An intro to linear classification with Python

Over the past few weeks, we’ve started to learn more and more about machine learning and the role it plays in computer vision, image classification, and deep learning. We’ve seen how Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) such as LetNet can be used to classify handwritten digits from the MNIST dataset. We’ve applied the k-NN algorithm to classify whether or […]
