"The field of Machine Learning seeks to answer these questions: How can we build computer systems that automatically improve with experience, and what are the fundamental laws that govern all learning processes?"

This is a practical introduction to Machine Learning using Python programming language. Machine Learning allows you to create systems and models that understand large amounts of data. These models support our decision making in a range of fields, including market prediction, within scientific research and statistical analysis. This course will teach you how to use statistical techniques and machine learning algorithms that enable a computer system to learn from different types of data. This is a ten week introductory course in Machine Learning using Python, which is a widely used programming language in the field of Machine Learning.
YOLOv3 is one of the most popular real-time object detectors in Computer Vision. In our previous post, we shared how to use YOLOv3 in an OpenCV application. It was very well received and many readers asked us to write a post on how to train YOLOv3 for new objects (i.e. In this step-by-step tutorial, we start with a simple case of how to train a 1-class object detector using YOLOv3. The tutorial is written with beginners in mind. Continuing with the spirit of the holidays, we will build our own snowman detector.
Deep Learning is very computationally intensive, so you will need a fast CPU with many cores, right? Or is it maybe wasteful to buy a fast CPU? One of the worst things you can do when building a deep learning system is to waste money on hardware that is unnecessary. Here I will guide you step by step through the hardware you will need for a cheap high-performance system. Over the years, I build a total of 7 different deep learning workstations and despite careful research and reasoning, I made my fair share of mistake in selecting hardware parts. In this guide, I want to share my experience that I gained over the years so that you do not make the same mistakes that I did before. The blog post is ordered by mistake severity. This means the mistakes where people usually waste the most money come first.
This video is a part of a free online course that provides introduction to practical deep learning methods using MATLAB. In addition to short engaging videos, the course also contains interactive, in-browser MATLAB projects. For a 14-hour comprehensive course covering the theory and practice of deep learning using real-world image and sequence data, see: http://bit.ly/2DjaTdh
Struggling to get started with machine learning using Python? In this step-by-step, hands-on tutorial you will learn how to perform machine learning using Python on numerical data and image data. By the time you are finished reading this post, you will be able to get your start in machine learning. To launch your machine learning in Python education, just keep reading! Inside this tutorial, you will learn how to perform machine learning in Python on numerical data and image data. Using this technique you will be able to get your start with machine learning and Python! Along the way, you'll discover popular machine learning algorithms that you can use in your own projects as well, including: This hands-on experience will give you the knowledge (and confidence) you need to apply machine learning in Python to your own projects. Before we can get started with this tutorial you first need to make sure your system is configured for machine learning. Today's code requires the following libraries: In order to help you gain experience performing machine learning in Python, we'll be working with two separate datasets. The first one, the Iris dataset, is the machine learning practitioner's equivalent of "Hello, World!" (likely one of the first pieces of software you wrote when learning how to program). The second dataset, 3-scenes, is an example image dataset I put together -- this dataset will help you gain experience working with image data, and most importantly, learn what techniques work best for numerical/categorical datasets vs. image datasets.

In part one, we learned about PyTorch and its component parts, now let's take a closer look and see what it can do. In this article, we explore some of PyTorch's capabilities by playing with pre-trained networks. Computer vision -- a field that deals with making computers to gain high-level understanding from digital images or videos -- is certainly one of the fields most impacted by the advent of deep learning, for a variety of reasons. The need for classifying or interpreting the content of natural images was there, huge datasets became available and new constructs, such as convolutional layers, came about and started to run quickly on GPUs with unprecedented accuracies.
IBM Watson NLC and Conversation services (as well as many other NLU cloud platforms) provide a Swift SDK to use in custom apps to implement intent understanding from natural language utterances. These SDKs and the corresponding NLU platforms are super powerful. They provide much more than simply intent understanding capability -- they also detect entities/slots and provide tools to manage complex, long running conversation dialogs. However, even for the most basic NLC inference, these SDKs depend on network connectivity, as the NLC model is run in the Cloud. By using Core ML models to run NLC and NLU algorithms on the device, we can provide similar functionality without relying on cloud inference.
Self-driving cars, have rapidly become one of the most transformative technologies to emerge. Fuelled by Deep Learning algorithms, they are continuously driving our society forward, and creating new opportunities in the mobility sector. Deep Learning jobs command some of the highest salaries in the development world. This is the first, and only course which makes practical use of Deep Learning, and applies it to building a self-driving car, one of the most disruptive technologies in the world today. With over 28000 students, Rayan is a highly rated and experienced instructor who has followed a "learn by doing" style to create this amazing course.
