Deep Learning Conf 2016

A conference on deep learning.


Deep learning for Image and Feature recognition

Submitted by Hemant Jain (@jainhemant) on Monday, 30 May 2016

Section: Full talk Technical level: Intermediate


With the rapid increase in images in social media and smarter devices, there is a tremendous amount of information waiting to be tapped into. Deep learning’s design makes it a very useful tool in today’s world. Extracting the right features after necessary pre-processing of images is often challenging. This talk will cover important hacks on how to deal with images, transform and extract features for training a model.
The session will use sample test cases to show the variation in model performance based on different pre-processing techniques and model hyper-parameters. The motivation is to help data scientists find the optimal balance between trade-offs.


  1. What kind of information do images hold?
  2. Selection of image transformation and processing techniques
  3. Hyper-parameter selection for deep nets
  4. Employing Deep Learning on images to transform businesses
