Facundo Parodi, Research and Machine Learning Engineer at Tryolabs, presents the "An Introduction to Machine Learning and How to Teach Machines to See" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.
What is machine learning? How can machines distinguish a cat from a dog in an image? What’s the magic behind convolutional neural networks? These are some of the questions Parodi answers in this introductory talk on machine learning in computer vision.
Parodi introduces machine learning and explores the different types of problems it can solve. He explains the main components of practical machine learning, from data gathering and training to deployment. Parodi then focuses on deep learning as an important machine learning technique and provides an introduction to convolutional neural networks and how they can be used to solve image classification problems. He also touches on recent advancements in deep learning and how they have revolutionized the entire field of computer vision.
