Building AI Superclusters in Canada

Like Wall Street for finance, Silicon Valley is the American centre for tech research and development — the place where it all comes together. Up in Canada meanwhile the scale is much smaller, and the country has not yet fostered a tech hub remotely comparable in size to Silicon Valley. But that may be changing, […]

DNN and CNN of Keras with MNIST Data in Python

We talked about some examples of CNN application with KeRas for Image Recognition and Quick Example of CNN with KeRas with Iris Data. Actually, TensorFlow itself in Python is mature enough to conduct deep learning activities and KeRas is even faster and more simple to train with than TensorFlow only in deep learning activities. You […]

Failures of Deep Learning

Abstract Today, Deep Learning is being applied in many fields such as computer vision, audio and natural language processing and generation etc. Although we are pushing the limits of its performance, people should be aware that Deep Learning has its limitations. In 2015, Anh Nguyen published a paper in CVPR [1] that identified a limit […]
