How to Apply Deep Learning to Real-World Problems

41 minutes, 51 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Deep Learning is a new area of Machine Learning research, which has been introduced with the objective of moving Machine Learning closer to one of its original goals: Artificial Intelligence.

Join Jennifer Marsman as she welcomes Sonja Knoll to the show as they take a deep dive into Deep Learning as well as apply some real-world scenarios for you to try out on your own.

    Sorta awesome stuff.
    Just a shame that the return to legacy neural networks methods, is such a slow learner technique, requiring powerful CPU, clouds for competitive deep machine learning.

    have you tried to apply the word completion approach to number recognition? What would be the impact on the whole deep learning approach if the input data set is processed in real-time- the pixels of a picture for example are being introduced to the processor in random way?

  • SonjaSonja

    Hi Tim - No, I haven’t tried that. To be clear, are you thinking of images as "sequences" of pixels? (similar to sequences of words for the word completion task). If that’s the case, I suppose one could use some sequence-related algorithms, like RNN/LSTM, but with two dimensions. Typically, CNNs are used for images since they encode the proximity of neighboring pixels. To your second point, one could submit the image to the model before it’s fully loaded, and get less-than-optimal results until the image is fully loaded.
