Deep Learning for Computer Vision With Python

What is Deep Learning?

Deep learning is a function that can learn without guidance and behave like a human brain, but it takes a lot of data and computing resources. Deep Learning is a subfield of machine learning regarded with algorithms stimulated by the structure and function of the brain called artificial neural networks. Another often cited advantage of deep learning models and scalability is their ability to perform automated feature extraction from raw data, also known as feature learning.

Geoffrey Hinton is an artificial neural network pioneer who co-wrote the first paper on the backpropagation algorithm for training multilayer perceptron networks. He may have been the first to use the term "deep" to describe the evolution of large artificial neural networks.

Yoshua Bengio FRS OC FRSC is a Canadian computer scientist who was born on March 5, 1964[1] in Paris, France. He says: "Deep learning algorithms aim to exploit the input distribution's unknown structure to discover good representations, often at multiple levels, with higher-level learned features described in terms of lower-level features."

Andrew Yan-Tak Ng (Chinese, 1976) is an American computer scientist and technology entrepreneur who specializes in machine learning and artificial intelligence. He declares: Backpropagation by deep auto-encoders has been obvious for nonlinear dimensionality reduction since the 1980s, provided computers were fast enough, data sets were large enough, and the initial weights were similar enough to a good solution. All three requirements have now been met.

Deep Learning and Computer vision

Intelligent animals like humans have almost 50% of the neuron in the cortex involved in visual processing. It is the biggest sensory. That enables us to survive, work, move around, manipulate things, communicate, entertain, and many other things.

Computer vision is a field of research that focuses on assisting machines to see. Computer vision is an artificial intelligence field that enables computers to perceive and comprehend images. Machines can accurately recognize and classify objects using digital images from cameras and videos, as well as deep learning models, and then respond to what they "see." 

''At an abstract level, the goal of computer vision problems is to use the observed image data to infer something about the world.''Page 83, Computer Vision: Models, Learning, and Inference, 2012.

So, what is the history of human vision, especially mechanical vision? Camera Obscura, which is built around the 1600S is based on the theory of pinhole cameras. 

In 1959, Hubel & Wiesel was able to record different types of signals by placing electrical sensors on the cat's head. The behavior of the signal was different depending on the vision; Small cell response to light orientation, complex cell response to light and movement, and hypercomplex cell response to movement and endpoints. Computer vision also started around the 60s. Block world is the set of works published by Larry Roberts which is known as one of the Ph.D. thesis in computer vision. Its goal is to reconstruct the shape of the image. Another computer vision project is the Summer Vision project. It is an attempt to use the summer workers effectively in the construction of a significant part of a visual system. Science than 50 has passed, the field of computer vision has blossomed from one summer project into a field of thousand projects of research. Vision has grown into one of the most important and fastest-growing fields in computer science and artificial intelligence. Another person that we should pay tribute to is David Marr. He is an MIT vision scientist. He has written an intelligence book in the late 70s about the vision of things and how we should go through computer vision and develop algorithms that can enable the computer to recognize the visual world. Work began on how computers could understand lines and edges in the '80s. Based on this, image segmentation and object dictation are started. Taking an image and grouping the pixels into a meaningful area. However, for this, it is necessary to know some algorithms of graph theory.  

Machine learning techniques in 1999 or 2000, especially statically machine learning start to gain momentum. AdaBoost algorithm to recognize the face in real-time is very popular among these: support vector machine, boosting graphical model, neural network. Developed by Paule Viole and Michle Jones. (2001) launched the Fujifilm digital camera in 2006 with real-time face detection capabilities. So, it was a very rapid transfer from basic science research to real-world application. The vision of image processing in the field of computer science has greatly improved over the last 10 years from the late 90s to the 2000s. Especially now car computers can detect and segment objects very efficiently. 

Deep learning offered a radically new way of approaching machine learning. Deep learning is based on neural networks, which are a general-purpose function capable of solving any problem that can be represented by examples. When you give a neural network a lot of labeled examples of a certain type of data, it can extract common patterns between them and turn them into a mathematical model. At the point when you give a neural organization a lot of marked instances of a particular kind of information, it can remove regular examples among them and change them into a numerical condition that can be utilized to recognize future bits of information. Deep learning is an amazing strategy for computer vision. Making an effective Deep learning calculation, as a rule, reduces to the social event a lot of marked preparing information and tweaking boundaries like neural organization structure and the number of layers, just as preparing epochs. Deep learning is less complex and speedier to fabricate and carry out than past types of AI.

How does computer vision work?

A lot of data is needed for computer vision. It repeats data analyses until it detects distinctions and, eventually, recognizes pictures. To teach a computer to recognize automobile tires, for example, it must be fed a large number of tire images and tire-related objects for it to learn the differences and recognize a tire, especially one with no defects. Two essential technologies are used to accomplish this: a type of machine learning called deep learning and a convolutional neural network (CNN).

AI is a method that permits a PC to illuminate itself about the significance of visual information utilizing algorithmic models. If enough information is taken care of in the model, the machine can figure out how to recognize pictures by "looking" at the information. Rather than somebody programming the machine to perceive a picture, calculations permit it to learn all alone.

A CNN aids machine learning or deep learning model's "look." It makes predictions about what it's "seeing" by using the labels to perform convolutions (a mathematical operation on two functions to generate the third function). In a sequence of iterations, the neural network runs convolutions and tests the accuracy of its predictions before the predictions start to come true. It then recognizes or sees images in a human-like manner.

A CNN, similar to an individual perceiving a picture in a good way recognizes hard edges and essential shapes first, at that point fills in the subtleties as it runs cycles of its forecasts. To fathom single pictures, a CNN is utilized. In video applications, a recurrent neural network (RNN) is utilized likewise to assist devices with seeing how images in an arrangement of casings are associated with one another.

Applications of Computer Vision

Since its principle applies to any area where a machine can see its surroundings in some way, there are several examples of computer vision in use. Here are some computer vision examples: 

Facial Recognition - Face recognition technology is used by businesses and personal devices to "see" who is attempting to gain access to something. It has evolved into a potent protection tool.

Facial Recognition - To determine how to act, self-driving cars must collect information about their surroundings.

Robotics - To perform the task at hand, most robotic machines, especially those used in manufacturing, require the ability to see their surroundings. Machines may be used to inspect assembly tolerances by "looking at" them in the manufacturing process.

Image Search and Object Recognition - Data vision theory is used in many applications to classify objects within images, scan through image catalogs and extract information from images.

How to start Computer vision? & the importance of Python

Learning Python programming is very important to start computer vision. Because Python has many types of library functions. Which can be easily used for various purposes. In particular, to get started with Vision's project, one should know Keras, Tensorflow, Pandas Libraries, Panda Data Frames, and different types of web APIs. To learn to use these library functions well, Python Basic must be strong. So Python's basic course is important to start computer vision easily.

Since computer vision is a part of deep learning, before doing the work of vision, it is better to learn to make small models of machine learning or deep learning. like, how to take in data models; It is very important to acquire hands-on knowledge about how we can add image models for vision.

Once the general issues are over, everyone needs to know about CNN Network next. Because the CNN model is very popular in computer vision and can be used very easily. Object detection should be started along with CNN. Object detection means, how can we identify an object by grouping the mean full pixels from the image? Object detection is a very important thing in this age of modern computers.

Then we must begin the most crucial work in computer vision. This is how large-scale networks are trained. Face recognition, for example, began in the 2000s thanks to advances in computer vision. The most pressing issue at the time was data storage on the disk. And there was a memory issue. However, in this day and age of cloud storage services and people carrying around a few GB of data on their phones, data is a valuable commodity. As a result, if possible, different vision projects such as Face Recognition can be tested with a large amount of data. OCR, Object detection, Instance segmentation, semantic segmentation, Embedded and IoT Computer Vision, Computer Vision on the Raspberry Pi, Medical Computer Vision (X-ray image), Working with Video, and Image Search Engines are some of the other topics to be covered.
