A Beginner’s Guide to Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs)


Convolutional neural networks are neural networks used primarily to classify images (i.e. name what they see), cluster images by similarity (photo search), and perform object recognition within scenes. For example, convolutional neural networks (ConvNets or CNNs) are used to identify faces, individuals, street signs, tumors, platypuses (platypi?) and many other aspects of visual data.
