Intro to Computer Vision

Thursday, October 21, 2021

11:00 am - 12:00 pm

About the Event 

In this session, we’ll cover the components of a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and talk about how they can be used to address image classification, object detection, and image segmentation use cases.

We’ll cap the session with a 20-minute rapid mini-workshop via Jupyter Notebook, where we’ll use code examples to build a CNN image classifier as well as use pretrained model libraries for object detection and image segmentation.
