Recognizing Animals in Photos: Building an AI model for Object Recognition

Our model for recognizing specific animals in images is a neural network consisting of multiple layers, and the initial layers are already good at understanding the world in general. So instead of “re-inventing the wheel,” we only need to train the final layers.

I was excited to work on a recent project with one of our partners, Wild Detect, because it aligns with one of our goals at Appsilon — to use data science consulting to aid in the…

Where Do We Stand With GANs?

Summary:  GANs (Generative Adversarial Nets) originally thought to be a tool for inexpensively creating DNN training data have instead become the tools for creating deep fake images.  However the deep fake technology is now finding uses in the commercial world and promises valuable results.

 

Generative…

Deep Learning picking momentum in option pricing and financial risk management

Deep Learning is picking momentum in Quantitative Finance, outside the obvious application to the prediction of asset prices (where to my knowledge it is not particularly effective) and spreading into the more serious application area of option pricing and risk management.

These two recent papers clearly demonstrate the benefits of DL as a pricing technology alternative to the classical FDM and Monte-Carlo in certain contexts:…

Things that Aren’t Working in Deep Learning

Summary:  This may be the golden age of deep learning but a lot can be learned by looking at where deep neural nets aren’t working yet.  This can be a guide to calming the hype.  It can also be a roadmap to future opportunities once these barriers are behind us.

 

We are living in the golden age of deep…

Facial Recognition and its Applications

Facial Recognition

Facial recognition technology was always a mythical concept that we thought could be a tool that could solve many of our problems but would never see the light of day. Today, facial recognition is everywhere and is a part of the everyday technology that we use. The…

Data Science Glossary

There has been much hype surrounding deep learning and data science learning in recent times, and one of the cornerstones of deep learning is the neural network. In this article, we will look at what a neural network is and get familiar with the relevant terminologies.

In simplest terms, a neural network is an interconnection of neurons. Now the question arises, what is a neuron? To understand neurons in deep learning, we first…

Democratizing Deep Learning – The Stanford Dawn Project

Summary:  How about we develop a ML platform that any domain expert can use to build a deep learning model without help from specialist data scientists, in a fraction of the time and cost.  The good news is the folks at the Stanford DAWN project are hard at work on just such a platform and the initial results are extraordinary.

Breaking Through the Cost Barrier to Deep Learning

Summary:  Remember when we used to say data is the new oil.  Not anymore.  Now Training Data is the new oil.  Training data is proving to be the single greatest impediment to the wide adoption and creation of deep learning models.  We’ll discuss current best practice but more importantly new breakthroughs into fully automated image labeling that are proving to be superior even to hand labeling.

Image identification using a convolutional neural network

This blog  explores a typical image identification task using a convolutional ("Deep Learning") neural network. For this purpose we will use a simple JavaCNN packageby D.Persson, and make our example small and concise using the Python scripting language. This example can also be rewritten in Java, Groovy, JRuby or any scripting language supported by the Java virtual machine.



This example will use images in the grayscale format (PGM). The name "PGM" is an acronym derived from…

Data or Algorithms – Which is More Important?

Summary:  Which is more important, the data or the algorithms?  This chicken and egg question led me to realize that it’s the data, and specifically the way we store and process the data that has dominated data science over the last 10 years.  And it all leads back to Hadoop.

 

Recently I was challenged to speak on the role of data in data…

Here is How Big Data is changing the Oil Industry

In 2006, marketing commentator Michael Palmer had blogged, “Data is just like crude. It’s valuable, but if unrefined it cannot really be used.

After nine years, the statement still holds true across any industry that depends on large volumes of data. It is true that until and unless, data is not broken down into pieces and analyzed, it holds little value.

As the world becomes more receptive to the advantages of big data, the oil industry does not seem to be far…
