Deep Learning with High School Math (or Less)

You don’t need a PhD or a master’s degree or even a bachelor’s degree in Math/CS to learn and appy deep learning. In most cases, all you need is some programming experience and a quick revision of some high school math e.g. differentiation and matrix multiplication. I’ll show you how you can get up and running in just few hours, and build state of the art deep learning models that solve problems … more

A Hitchhiker's Guide to Modern Object Detection: A deep learning journey since 2012

The ability to detect objects in images has captured the world’s imagination. One can make a decent case that this application is the poster child of deep learning. What really put it on the map. But few people really understands how computers have begun to detect these objects in images with a high accuracy. Which is surprising since it is the backbone of the tech powering self driving cars, dro… more

What you cannot do with Machine Learning

During this “boom” of machine learning and data driven technologies, there is an underlying belief that given enough data any problem is solvable. But like any other technology, machine learning is a tool, appropriate for some problems and not so appropriate for others. Though this talk I would like to remind the community of the things which cannot be done through machine learning. more

Adversarial Attacks on Deep Learning

Deep learning algorithms are highly popular and being applied to solve various problems with high accuracies. However, they are not infallible and are, in fact, highly susecptible to adversarial attacks. These attacks can manifest in the form of synthetically generated data or perturbed data which mean one thing to a human observer and something completely different to the deep network. Thereby, … more

AI at the Edge: A Software Perspective

Internet of Things(IoT) devices need to run AI algorithms which are usually associated with high data and computational costs, which is only possible with cloud servers having very powerful systems. Hence these IoT devices aren’t capable of accomplishing much at the ‘edge’ (where the IoT devices are deployed) and their ‘brains’ are located on distant cloud servers. more
