I recently stumbled upon an interesting blockchain project: Akash Network (GitHub). In simplest terms, Akash is a decentralized cloud computing marketplace. This short article documents the process of deploying my personal site using Akash, comparisons with other cloud providers, and some thoughts on the future of Akash.

Edge detection is a major component of image processing. Despite multiple advances in deep-learning-based techniques such as Convolutional Neural Networks that can perform very complex edge detection (i.e. edges with varying curvature, noise, color etc.), classical edge detection methods are still highly relevant in certain cases! …

In the world of Computer Vision(CV), there are many interesting concepts. Deep Convolutional Neural Networks have largely dominated many CV tasks in the past decade. CNNs are able to perform better than humans at things like image classification, object detection and image segmentation in certain domains. The best advantage of…

Create your own cat/dog classifier in no time!

If you are trying to learn about Deep Learning today, there are tons of online courses, books and material for that. Then, something like this appears in the very first lesson:

Part of the backpropagation equations

Deep Learning is at it’s heart a data-analysis technique, thus the underlying concepts are definitely math-intensive. However, these complicated…
