Chapter 6. Convolutional Neural Networks
Convolutional neural networks are part of many of the most advanced models currently being employed. They are used in numerous fields, but the main application field is in the realm of image classification and feature detection.
The topics we will cover in this chapter are as follows:
- Getting an idea of how convolution functions and convolutional networks work and the main operation types used in building them
- Applying convolution operations to image data and learning some of the preprocessing techniques applied to images to improve the accuracy of the methods
- Classifying digits of the MNIST dataset using a simple setup of CNN
- Classifying real images of the CIFAR dataset, with a CNN model applied to color images ...
