Building A Neural Network With TensorFlow

Julien Heiduk gives us an example of building a neural network with TensorFlow:

To use Tensorflow we need to transform our data (features) in a special format. As a reminder, we have just the continuous features. So the first function used is: tf.contrib.layers.real_valued_column. The others cells allowed to us to create a train set and test set with our training dataset. The sampling is not the most relevant but it is not the goal of this article. So be careful! The sample 67-33 is not the rule!

It’s probably an indicator that I’m a casual, but I prefer to use Keras as an abstraction layer rather than working directly with TensorFlow.

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 […]
