Training Convolutional Neural Networks On Satellite Image Data

Ahmet Taspinar builds a neural net which detects roads in satellite images:

Next we will determine the contents of each tile image, using data from the NWB Wegvakken (version September 2017). This is a file containing all of the roads of the Netherlands, which gets updated frequently. It is possible to download it in the form of a shapefile from this location.
Shapefiles contain shapes with geospatial data and are normally opened with GIS software like ArcGIS or QGIS. It is also possible to open it within Python, by using the pyshp library.

This is a pretty lengthy and interesting tutorial.  H/T Data Science Central

Image Counts For Neural Network Training

Pete Warden shares his rule of thumb for how many images you need to train a neural network: In the early days I would reply with the technically most correct, but also useless answer of “it depends”, but over the last couple of years I’ve realized that just having a very approximate rule of thumb […]

Capsule Neural Networks

Saurabh Kulshrestha covers the topic of capsule neural networks: This is the problem with Convolutional Neural Networks as well. CNN is good at detecting features, but will wrongly activate the neuron for face detection. This is because it is less effective at exploring the spatial relationships among features. A simple CNN model can extract the […]
