  • Title : Introduction to Deep Learning for Visual Recognition
  • Speaker : Prof. Bohyung Han


Deep learning has been very successful in many visual recognition problems, and impressive algorithms with outstanding performance have been released every day. This lecture starts with very simple neural networks, where the concept of artificial neural networks and learning algorithm by error backpropagation are discussed using a few standard applications in computer vision, and discusses why neural networks have not been successful for a long time and what break-throughs are critical to recent advances. In addition, it deals with a basic convolutional neural network for image classification, AlexNet; its architecture, properties, and several techniques for performance enhancement are presented.
