Handwriting Character Recognition

Tomaz Kastrun compares a few different libraries in terms of handwritten numeric character recognition:

Recently, I did a session at local user group in Ljubljana, Slovenija, where I introduced the new algorithms that are available with MicrosoftML package for Microsoft R Server 9.0.3.

For dataset, I have used two from (still currently) running sessions from Kaggle. In the last part, I did image detection and prediction of MNIST dataset and compared the performance and accuracy between.

MNIST Handwritten digit database is available here.

Tomaz has all of the code available as well.

William Vorhies provides us a negative (and necessary) look at the current state of Deep Learning solutions: Reinforcement Learning (RL) is arguably the hottest research area in AI today because it appears RL can be adapted to any problem that has a well-defined reward function.¬† That encompasses game play, robotics, self-driving cars, and frankly pretty […]

Object Detection Methods In Convolutional Neural Networks

Xindian Long explains some of the techniques which convolutional neural networks use to discern objects in images: Can we do object detection in a smart way by only looking at some of the windows? The answer is yes. There are two approaches to find this subset of windows, which lead to two different categories of […]
