Raspberry Pi: Deep learning object detection with OpenCV

A few weeks ago I demonstrated how to perform real-time object detection using deep learning and OpenCV on a standard laptop/desktop. After the post was published I received a number of emails from PyImageSearch readers who were curious if the Raspberry Pi could also be used for real-time object detection. The short answer is “kind […]

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 […]
