Deep Learning based Edge Detection in OpenCV

by Ankit Sachan • February 19, 2019

In this post, we will learn how to use deep learning based edge detection in OpenCV which is more accurate than the widely popular canny edge detector. Edge detection is useful in many use-cases such as visual saliency detection, object detection, tracking and motion analysis, structure from motion, 3D reconstruction, autonomous driving, image to text […]

Man’s Search for the most accurate Neural Network Architecture

by Ankit Sachan • September 27, 2018

Neural network architecture design is one of the key hyperparameters in solving problems using deep learning and computer vision. Various neural networks are compared on two key factors i.e. accuracy and computational requirement. In general, as we aim to design more accurate neural networks, the computational requirement increases. In this post, we shall learn about […]

Choosing a Deep Learning Framework: Tensorflow or Pytorch?

by Ankit Sachan • May 29, 2018

One of my friends is the founder and Chief data scientist at a very successful deep learning startup. 2017 was a good year for his startup with funding and increasing adoption. However, on a Thursday evening last year, my friend was very frustrated and disappointed. The framework on which they had built everything in last […]
