#### ResNet, AlexNet, VGG, Inception: Understanding various architectures of Convolutional Networks

Convolutional neural networks are fantastic for visual recognition tasks. Good ConvNets are beasts with millions of parameters and many hidden layers. In fact, a bad rule of thumb is: ‘higher the number of hidden layers, better the network’. AlexNet, VGG, Inception, ResNet are some of the popular networks. Why do these networks work so well? How are they […]

Continue Reading#### Image Segmentation using deconvolution layer in Tensorflow

In this series of post, we shall learn the algorithm for image segmentation and implementation of the same using Tensorflow. This is the first part of the series where we shall focus on understanding and be implementing a deconvolutional/fractional-strided-convolutional layer in Tensorflow. Why is deconvolutional layer so important? Image segmentation is just one of […]
