A Convolutional Neural Network or CNN- as they are commonly referred to, is a class of Deep Learning models that are most commonly applied to analyze visual imagery.
They are the go-to method for any prediction problem in Deep Learning where the input is an image.
As compared to primitive methods, where the filters are hand-engineered, CNNs can be trained to learn these filters with enough data.
The architecture of a CNN was inspired by the pattern of Neurons in the Visual Cortex of the Human Brain enabling it to extract useful information from the image compared to the normal…

The Internet is an unfiltered place. There is no guarantee what you would stumble across while you are casually scrolling through your feeds.
You could stumble across inappropriate or “Not-Safe-For-Work” images even in unassuming places on the Interweb.
This led me to think of a solution that could filter out such content from the web. There were a few points to consider:
If you are in a hurry and just want the template skip to the bottom (not cool).
The rest of the cool people get ready to take your first step to being a README MASTER! (absolutely not clickbait).
You have just created this awesome project and you shared it on GitHub. You think now you’ll just sit back and wait for the world to tell you how cool your project is. After all, you have worked tirelessly for the past month on this very challenging project, right?
Well, let’s just take a step back and look from the perspective of…
The most common question that I keep getting asked is “ How do I get started with Machine Learning?”. I know it can be quite overwhelming- with all the different tools and resources available online and you have no idea where to start. Believe me, I have been there. So in this article, I will try to get you started with building Machine Learning models and familiarise you with the practices that are being used in the industry.
You come out from an evening of political discussion and music at the symposium. While going back to your house you stop at the markets of the agora and do a little shopping. You walk to your house wearing your chiton where you find your wife spinning wool to make new clothes.
This was your life as an aristoi or aristocrat in ancient Greece.
Things have evolved way past that now.
We have developed systems to combat every disease, built technology that lets you reach anyone in the world, anytime. …
In this guide, we will be improving our model that we trained in the previous section to classify images of apparels.
Okay then! Let me brief you on what we are about to do:
We will be looking at a new class of deep learning neural networks called the Convolutional Neural Network. …
In this guide, you will be training a neural network model to classify images of clothing like shirts, coats, sneakers etc.
Whew! That sounds a lot for a beginner tutorial, I mean we are just getting started right?
Not to worry! Don’t get overwhelmed, it’s okay if you don’t understand all the details. You would learn all the details as you go deeper into the article, trust me :).
If you are totally new to machine learning, I would suggest you check out my beginner tutorial.
With that said, let’s…
If you are new to Computer Vision or if you have a strong urge to play the drums but don’t own one, you have come to the right place!
In this tutorial we will build a virtual drum set using basic concepts in computer vision using OpenCV. If you are a beginner to OpenCV, this would be a good tutorial to try.
We will build the project from scratch and in the end you will have a cool project to show off!
All the source code is available in this GitHub repository. …
The exponential increase in COVID-19 patients is overwhelming the healthcare systems across the world and it continues to have a devastating effect on the population. A critical step in the fight against the virus is a fast and reliable testing technique. The conventional techniques (RT-PCR) is costly and more importantly they take time and have limited sensitivity.
While the diagnosis is confirmed using polymerase chain reaction (PCR), infected patients with pneumonia may present on chest X-ray and computed tomography (CT) images with a pattern that is only moderately characteristic for the human eye. In late January, a Chinese team published…
