Breast cancer classification with Keras and Deep Learning

In this tutorial, you will learn how to train a Keras deep learning model to predict breast cancer in breast histology images. Back 2012-2013 I was working for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to develop a suite of image processing and machine learning algorithms to automatically analyze breast […]

Deep learning, hydroponics, and medical marijuana

In today’s blog post we will investigate a practical use case of applying deep learning to hydroponics, a type of method used to grow plants without soil using mineral-rich nutrient solutions in a water solvent. Specifically, you will learn how to train a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) using Keras to automatically classify root health without […]

Keras Tutorial: How to get started with Keras, Deep Learning, and Python

Inside this Keras tutorial, you will discover how easy it is to get started with deep learning and Python. You will use the Keras deep learning library to train your first neural network on a custom image dataset, and from there, you’ll implement your first Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) as well. The inspiration for this […]

An interview with David Austin: 1st place and $25,000 in Kaggle’s most popular image classification competition

In today’s blog post, I interview David Austin, who, with his teammate, Weimin Wang, took home 1st place (and $25,000) in Kaggle’s Iceberg Classifier Challenge. David and Weimin’s winning solution can be practically used to allow safer navigation for ships and boats across hazardous waters, resulting in less damages to ships and cargo, and most […]

Face detection with OpenCV and deep learning

Today I’m going to share a little known secret with you regarding the OpenCV library: You can perform fast, accurate face detection with OpenCV using a pre-trained deep learning face detector model shipped with the library. You may already know that OpenCV ships out-of-the-box with pre-trained Haar cascades that can be used for face detection… […]

Real-time object detection on the Raspberry Pi with the Movidius NCS

Today’s post is inspired by Danielle, a PyImageSearch reader who emailed me last week and asked: Hi Adrian, I’m enjoying your blog and I especially liked last week’s post about image classification with the Intel Movidius NCS. I’m still considering purchasing an Intel Movidius NCS for a personal project. My project involves object detection with […]

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 […]
