The past 18 months or so have been somewhat different as far as availability of in person gatherings, meetups and Makerfairs, etc. but this year there are some changes for the better… If you are interested in Machine learning and computer-vision projects, come look at a couple demos at the booth at Central Oregon Maker Fair, Nov 13-15th!
If you have been doing OpenCV or Python machine learning, you have most likely come across PyImageSearch. If you come across a sale for this service I would recommend trying it out if you are learning some machine learning. This past week they have run a free promo 7 day trial, which gave me an opportunity to browse these.Continue reading “PyImageSearch Review”
Thousands of years ago, probably around the invention of the wheel, and before the time of Solomon, humans must have been measuring various objects… calculating some distances, and wondering, is there a better way to measure how far around the outside of a wheel is compared to its diameter? Continue reading “Neural Networks Part 2: Learning Pi”
Keras is a library that makes machine learning easy to run and train without knowing too much of the math behind it. It has many tutorials including an excellent howto by Egghead.io, Pyimagesearch and of course the official documentation and books…
…but what if you want to look into the details of how it works? Neural networks are a series of functions that are adjusted over time, and we can “see” what happens in a simple example. Continue reading “Into Neural Networks! Part 1”
