Basic Deep Learning in Computer Vision

From voice-activated assistants to facial recognition in photographs, many new applications of computer vision techniques have become part of our daily lives. Developed for beginners, this is a two-day course that introduces participants to the field of computer vision and basic image processing. The course will go on to cover the basic fundamentals of deep learning and how deep learning is applied to image processing. Participants will be taught to solve image recognition problems through Convolutional Neural Network.

Learning Objectives

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • better understand image processing fundamentals

    • image format and format conversion

    • image augmentation

    • image convolution

  • Understand the purpose of image processing for learning and recognition

  • Gain an introduction to python image libraries

  • Gain an overview of neural networks and deep learning in

    • neural units and neural network

    • cost functions

    • optimization

    • feedforward and backpropagation

  • Use Keras and Google Co-laboratory to create a neural network

  • Understand Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and its layers including

    • Convolution layer
    • Pooling and dropout layer
  • Create, train and test a CNN that performs hand-written characters recognition

Who should attend?

Anyone seeking to learn how to solve image recognition problems with deep learning or those who already have the basics of machine learning and desire to upgrade their competencies. No prior knowledge of computer vision is required.
