Neural Networks : A 30,000 Feet View for Beginners

In this article, I am going to provide a 30,000 feet view of Neural Networks. The post is written for absolute beginners who are trying to dip their toes in Machine Learning and Deep Learning. We will keep this short, sweet and math-free. Neural Networks as Black Box We will start by treating a Neural… Read More »

Handwritten Digits Classification : An OpenCV ( C++ / Python ) Tutorial

In this tutorial, we will build a simple handwritten digit classifier using OpenCV. As always we will share code written in C++ and Python. This post is the third in a series I am writing on image recognition and object detection. The first post introduced the traditional computer vision image classification pipeline and in the… Read More »

Image Recognition and Object Detection : Part 1

This is a multipart post on image recognition and object detection. In this part, we will briefly explain image recognition using traditional computer vision techniques. I refer to techniques that are not Deep Learning based as traditional computer vision techniques because they are being quickly replaced by Deep Learning based techniques. That said, traditional computer… Read More »
