Neural Networks and Deep Learning are currently the two hot buzzwords that are being used nowadays with Artificial Intelligence. The recent developments in the World of Artificial intelligence can be attributed to these two as they have played a significant role in improving the intelligence of AI. Look around, and you will find more and more intelligent machines around. Thanks to Neural Networks and Deep Learning, jobs and capabilities that were once considered the forte of humans are now being performed by machines. Today, Machines are no longer made to eat more complex algorithms, but instead, they are fed to develop into an autonomous, self-teaching systems capable of revolutionizing many industries all around.
In the past year I have also worked with Deep Learning techniques, and I would like to share with you how to make and train a Convolutional Neural Network from scratch, using tensorflow. Later on we can use this knowledge as a building block to make interesting Deep Learning applications. The pictures here are from the full article. Source code is also provided. Before you continue, make sure you understand how a convolutional neural network works.
