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 […]

Where did SIFT and SURF go in OpenCV 3?

If you’ve had a chance to play around with OpenCV 3 (and do a lot of work with keypoint detectors and feature descriptors) you may have noticed that the SIFT and SURF implementations are no longer included in the OpenCV 3 library by default. Unfortunately, you probably learned this lesson the hard way by opening up a terminal, […]
