Introduction to Deep Learning for Computer Vision

Christian Zuniga, PhD


Neural networks have in the past decade achieved high, even super-human accuracy, at many computer vision tasks such as image classification, object detection, and image segmentation. Although neural networks and the backpropagation training technique have been available since the 1980’s, recent advances in hardware like GPUs, architectures, algorithms, and availability of large high quality labeled data have allowed neural networks to reign supreme on these tasks. For example, in the…
