  • Research Guide for Transformers - 30 Oct 2019
    The problem with RNNs and CNNs is that they aren’t able to keep up with context and content when sentences are too long. This limitation has been solved by paying attention to the word that is currently being operated on. This guide will focus on how this problem can be addressed by Transformers with the help of deep learning.

  • A 2019 Guide to Human Pose Estimation - 28 Aug 2019
    Human pose estimation refers to the process of inferring poses in an image. Essentially, it entails predicting the positions of a person’s joints in an image or video. This problem is also sometimes referred to as the localization of human joints.
  • A 2019 Guide to Semantic Segmentation - 12 Aug 2019
    Semantic segmentation refers to the process of linking each pixel in an image to a class label. These labels could include a person, car, flower, piece of furniture, etc., just to mention a few. We’ll now look at a number of research papers on covering state-of-the-art approaches to building semantic segmentation models.
  • A 2019 Guide to Object Detection - 01 Aug 2019
    Object detection has been applied widely in video surveillance, self-driving cars, and object/people tracking. In this piece, we’ll look at the basics of object detection and review some of the most commonly-used algorithms and a few brand new approaches, as well.
