Deep Learning Applied to Machine Vision Tasks (free)

Neural networks and deep learning are key to qualitative improvements in many computer vision tasks like object detection, segmentation, and recognition, as well as scene understanding, content-based filtering, and more. This tutorial will utilise the new deep neural network framework in Mathematica to introduce the basic concepts.

In this workshop, we will not go as far as developing a self-driving car from a set of input video streams. However we will demonstrate the practice of the new neural networks capabilities in the Wolfram language by walking through several modern applications such as image quality assessment, or action recognition.

If time allows, we conclude with some exercises.
