Convolutional neural networks are an important class of learnable representations applicable, among others, to numerous computer vision problems. Deep CNNs, in particular, are composed of several layers of processing, each involving linear as well as non-linear operators, that are learned jointly, in an end-to-end manner, to solve a particular tasks. These methods are now the dominant approach for feature extraction from audiovisual and textual data.

This practical explores the basics of learning (deep) CNNs. Deep learning – Convolutional neural networks and feature extraction with Python. Convolutional neural networks (or ConvNets) are biologically-inspired variants of MLPs, they have different kinds of layers and each different layer works different than the usual MLP layers.

If you are interested in learning more about ConvNets, a good course is the CS231n – Convolutional Neural Newtorks for Visual Recognition. The architecture of the CNNs are shown in the images below: As you can see, the ConvNets works with 3D volumes and transformations of these 3D volumes. I won’t repeat in this post the entire CS231n tutorial, so if you’re really interested, please take time to read before continuing. Convolutional Neural Networks. NOTE: This tutorial is intended for advanced users of TensorFlow and assumes expertise and experience in machine learning.

Overview CIFAR-10 classification is a common benchmark problem in machine learning. The problem is to classify RGB 32x32 pixel images across 10 categories: airplane, automobile, bird, cat, deer, dog, frog, horse, ship, and truck. For more details refer to the CIFAR-10 page and a Tech Report by Alex Krizhevsky. Convolutional Neural Networks - Andrew Gibiansky.

Next, let's derive the backward propagation algorithms for these two layer types.

Convolutional Layers Let's assume that we have some error function, E, and we know the error values at our convolutional layer. What, then, are the error values at the layer before it, and what is the gradient for each weight in the convolutional layer? Note that the error we know and that we need to compute for the previous layer is the partial of E with respect to each neuron output (∂E∂yℓij).

Let's first figure out what the gradient component is for each weight by applying the chain rule. ∂E∂ωab=N−m∑i=0N−m∑j=0∂E∂xℓij∂xℓij∂ωab=N−m∑i=0N−m∑j=0∂E∂xℓijyℓ−1(i+a)(j+b) In this case, we must sum over all xℓij expressions in which ωab occurs. In order to compute the gradient, we need to know the values ∂E∂xℓij (which are often called "deltas"). Lec24 cnn. CS231n Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition.

CS231n Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition. Table of Contents: Convolutional Neural Networks are very similar to ordinary Neural Networks from the previous chapter: they are made up of neurons that have learnable weights and biases.

Each neuron receives some inputs, performs a dot product and optionally follows it with a non-linearity. The whole network still expresses a single differentiable score function: from the raw image pixels on one end to class scores at the other. And they still have a loss function (e.g. SVM/Softmax) on the last (fully-connected) layer and all the tips/tricks we developed for learning regular Neural Networks still apply. So what changes?

Architecture Overview. Neural networks and deep learning. In the last chapter we learned that deep neural networks are often much harder to train than shallow neural networks.

That's unfortunate, since we have good reason to believe that if we could train deep nets they'd be much more powerful than shallow nets. But while the news from the last chapter is discouraging, we won't let it stop us. In this chapter, we'll develop techniques which can be used to train deep networks, and apply them in practice.

Overview A Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) is comprised of one or more convolutional layers (often with a subsampling step) and then followed by one or more fully connected layers as in a standard multilayer neural network.

The architecture of a CNN is designed to take advantage of the 2D structure of an input image (or other 2D input such as a speech signal). This is achieved with local connections and tied weights followed by some form of pooling which results in translation invariant features. Another benefit of CNNs is that they are easier to train and have many fewer parameters than fully connected networks with the same number of hidden units. In this article we will discuss the architecture of a CNN and the back propagation algorithm to compute the gradient with respect to the parameters of the model in order to use gradient based optimization.

Lecun-ranzato-icml2013.pdf. Hacker's guide to Neural Networks. Hi there, I’m a CS PhD student at Stanford. I’ve worked on Deep Learning for a few years as part of my research and among several of my related pet projects is ConvNetJS - a Javascript library for training Neural Networks.

Javascript allows one to nicely visualize what’s going on and to play around with the various hyperparameter settings, but I still regularly hear from people who ask for a more thorough treatment of the topic. This article (which I plan to slowly expand out to lengths of a few book chapters) is my humble attempt. It’s on web instead of PDF because all books should be, and eventually it will hopefully include animations/demos etc. My personal experience with Neural Networks is that everything became much clearer when I started ignoring full-page, dense derivations of backpropagation equations and just started writing code.

“…everything became much clearer when I started writing code.” Caffe Tutorial. Caffe is a deep learning framework and this tutorial explains its philosophy, architecture, and usage. This is a practical guide and framework introduction, so the full frontier, context, and history of deep learning cannot be covered here. While explanations will be given where possible, a background in machine learning and neural networks is helpful. Philosophy In one sip, Caffe is brewed for Expression: models and optimizations are defined as plaintext schemas instead of code. And these principles direct the project. Socher-lxmls.

Hacker's guide to Neural Networks. Python Numpy Tutorial. This tutorial was contributed by Justin Johnson. We will use the Python programming language for all assignments in this course. Python is a great general-purpose programming language on its own, but with the help of a few popular libraries (numpy, scipy, matplotlib) it becomes a powerful environment for scientific computing. We expect that many of you will have some experience with Python and numpy; for the rest of you, this section will serve as a quick crash course both on the Python programming language and on the use of Python for scientific computing.

Some of you may have previous knowledge in Matlab, in which case we also recommend the numpy for Matlab users page.

Understanding Convolution in Deep Learning. Convolution is probably the most important concept in deep learning right now. It was convolution and convolutional nets that catapulted deep learning to the forefront of almost any machine learning task there is.

But what makes convolution so powerful? How does it work? In this blog post I will explain convolution and relate it to other concepts that will help you to understand convolution thoroughly. There are already some blog post regarding convolution in deep learning, but I found all of them highly confusing with unnecessary mathematical details that do not further the understanding in any meaningful way.

What is convolution? This whole blog post will build up to answer exactly this question, but it may be very helpful to first understand in which direction this is going, so what is convolution in rough terms? You can imagine convolution as the mixing of information. How do we apply convolution to images? Deep learning - Understanding convolutional neural networks.
