Liveness Detection with OpenCV - PyImageSearch


In this tutorial, you will learn how to perform liveness detection with OpenCV. You will create a liveness detector capable of spotting fake faces and performing anti-face spoofing in face recognition systems. How do I spot real versus fake faces? Consider what would happen if a nefarious user tried to purposely circumvent your face recognition system. Such a user could try to hold up a photo of another person. Maybe they even have a photo or video on their smartphone that they could hold up to the camera responsible for performing face recognition (such as in the image at the top of this post).

A Gentle Introduction to Convolutional Layers for Deep Learning Neural Networks


Convolution and the convolutional layer are the major building blocks used in convolutional neural networks. A convolution is the simple application of a filter to an input that results in an activation. Repeated application of the same filter to an input results in a map of activations called a feature map, indicating the locations and strength of a detected feature in an input, such as an image. The innovation of convolutional neural networks is the ability to automatically learn a large number of filters in parallel specific to a training dataset under the constraints of a specific predictive modeling problem, such as image classification. The result is highly specific features that can be detected anywhere on input images. In this tutorial, you will discover how convolutions work in the convolutional neural network.

How to Load and Visualize Standard Computer Vision Datasets With Keras


It can be convenient to use a standard computer vision dataset when getting started with deep learning methods for computer vision. Standard datasets are often well understood, small, and easy to load. They can provide the basis for testing techniques and reproducing results in order to build confidence with libraries and methods. In this tutorial, you will discover the standard computer vision datasets provided with the Keras deep learning library.

Exercises in amazement: Discovering deep learning

MIT News

It was standing-room only in the Stata Center's Kirsch Auditorium when some 300 attendees showed up for opening lectures for MIT's intensive, student-designed course 6.S191 (Introduction to Deep Learning). Nathan Rebello, a first-year graduate student in chemical engineering, was among those who were excited about the class, coordinated by Alexander Amini '17 and Ava Soleimany '16 during MIT's Independent Activities Period (IAP) in January. "I hope to go into either industry or academia and to apply deep learning techniques for the design of new materials," Rebello says. He signed up for 6.S191 to learn more about deep learning with the intention of applying it to the design of bio-inspired polymeric materials, adding: "I also wanted to network with students and faculty to explore their ways of thinking on this topic." There were plenty of people available for networking.

Google and Udacity launch free course to help you master machine learning


Google and online learning hub Udacity have launched a free course designed to make it simpler for software developers to grasp the fundamentals of machine learning. The "Intro to TensorFlow for Deep Learning" course is designed to be more accessible to developers than previous machine-learning courses offered by Udacity. "Our goal is to get you building state-of-the-art AI applications as fast as possible, without requiring a background in math," says Mat Leonard, head of the School of AI at Udacity. "If you can code, you can build AI with TensorFlow. You'll get hands-on experience using TensorFlow to implement state-of-the-art image classifiers and other deep learning models. You'll also learn how to deploy your models to various environments including browsers, phones, and the cloud."

Holistically-Nested Edge Detection with OpenCV and Deep Learning - PyImageSearch


In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply Holistically-Nested Edge Detection (HED) with OpenCV and Deep Learning. We'll apply Holistically-Nested Edge Detection to both images and video streams, followed by comparing the results to OpenCV's standard Canny edge detector. Edge detection enables us to find the boundaries of objects in images and was one of the first applied use cases of image processing and computer vision. When it comes to edge detection with OpenCV you'll most likely utilize the Canny edge detector; however, there are a few problems with the Canny edge detector, namely: Holistically-Nested Edge Detection (HED) attempts to address the limitations of the Canny edge detector through an end-to-end deep neural network. This network accepts an RGB image as an input and then produces an edge map as an output.
