Getting Started With TensorFlow

Vivek Kalyanrangan shows us how to install TensorFlow:

Installing Tensorflow with GPU requires you to have NVIDIA GPU. AMD video cards are not supported with tensorflow. NVIDIA uses low level GPU computing system called CUDA. It is an NVIDIA proprietary software.

One can go the OpenCL way with AMD but as of now it won’t work with tensorflow.

Also, all NVIDIA devices are not supported. Here is a list from the NVIDIA documentation listing the supported GPUs.

By the end of it, Vivek also shows us a simple trained model.

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 […]
