Images are comprised of matrices of pixel values. Black and white images are single matrix of pixels, whereas color images have a separate array of pixel values for each color channel, such as red, green, and blue. Pixel values are often unsigned integers in the range between 0 and 255. Although these pixel values can […]

## DeepLearning.AI Convolutional Neural Networks Course (Review)

Andrew Ng is famous for his Stanford machine learning course provided on Coursera. In 2017, he released a five-part course on deep learning also on Coursera titled “Deep Learning Specialization” that included one module on deep learning for computer vision titled “Convolutional Neural Networks.” This course provides an excellent introduction to deep learning methods for […]

## 9 Applications of Deep Learning for Computer Vision

The field of computer vision is shifting from statistical methods to deep learning neural network methods. There are still many challenging problems to solve in computer vision. Nevertheless, deep learning methods are achieving state-of-the-art results on some specific problems. It is not just the performance of deep learning models on benchmark problems that is most […]

## 3 Levels of Deep Learning Competence

Deep learning is not a magic bullet, but the techniques have shown to be highly effective in a large number of very challenging problem domains. This means that there is a ton of demand by businesses for effective deep learning practitioners. The problem is, how can the average business differentiate between good and bad practitioners? […]

## Framework for Better Deep Learning

Modern deep learning libraries such as Keras allow you to define and start fitting a wide range of neural network models in minutes with just a few lines of code. Nevertheless, it is still challenging to configure a neural network to get good performance on a new predictive modeling problem. The challenge of getting good […]

## How to use Data Scaling Improve Deep Learning Model Stability and Performance

Deep learning neural networks learn how to map inputs to outputs from examples in a training dataset. The weights of the model are initialized to small random values and updated via an optimization algorithm in response to estimates of error on the training dataset. Given the use of small weights in the model and the […]

## Understand the Impact of Learning Rate on Neural Network Performance

Deep learning neural networks are trained using the stochastic gradient descent optimization algorithm. The learning rate is a hyperparameter that controls how much to change the model in response to the estimated error each time the model weights are updated. Choosing the learning rate is challenging as a value too small may result in a […]

## Practical Deep Learning for Coders (Review)

Practical deep learning is a challenging subject in which to get started. It is often taught in a bottom-up manner, requiring that you first get familiar with linear algebra, calculus, and mathematical optimization before eventually learning the neural network techniques. This can take years, and most of the background theory will not help you to […]

## A Gentle Introduction to Activation Regularization in Deep Learning

Deep learning models are capable of automatically learning a rich internal representation from raw input data. This is called feature or representation learning. Better learned representations, in turn, can lead to better insights into the domain, e.g. via visualization of learned features, and to better predictive models that make use of the learned features. A […]

## A Gentle Introduction to Deep Learning Caption Generation Models

Caption generation is the challenging artificial intelligence problem of generating a human-readable textual description given a photograph. It requires both image understanding from the domain of computer vision and a language model from the field of natural language processing. It is important to consider and test multiple ways to frame a given predictive modeling problem […]
