Image Analysis and Text Classification using CNNs in PyTorch

Video description

This video teaches you how to build a powerful image classifier in just minutes using convolutional neural networks and PyTorch. It reviews the fundamental concepts of convolution and image analysis; shows you how to create a simple convolutional neural network (CNN) with PyTorch; and demonstrates how using transfer learning with a deep CNN to train on image datasets can generate state-of-the-art performance. The course is designed for the software engineer looking to get started with deep learning and for the AI researcher with TensorFlow or Theano experience who wants a smooth transition into PyTorch. Prerequisites include an understanding of algebra, basic calculus, and basic Python skills. Learners should download and install PyTorch before starting class.

  • Learn how to build a powerful image classifier in minutes using PyTorch
  • Explore the basics of convolution and how to apply them to image recognition tasks
  • Learn how to do transfer learning in conjunction with powerful pretrained models
  • Gain experience using powerful deep learning models for image recognition tasks
