Covers: implementation of Convolutional Neural Network
Estimated time needed to finish: 30 minutes
Questions this item addresses:
  • How to implement convnets in PyTorch?
How to use this item?

This sub-repo has 2 Notebooks. One of the main concepts for Convolutional-Networks and the other is a Challenge that contains all the structure to build your Neural Network from scratch! The recommended use of this is:

1.- Take your time to solve the notebook3-Convolutions.

2.- Contrast your notebook with their respective Notebook’s in ./Solutions File.

3.- Go to the Code-Challenge notebook and try to build your NN from scratch.

In this notebook, you will learn about:

  • Convolutions
  • Smoothing/Binning functions: Hann Kernel
  • Smoothing/Binning cont.
  • 2D Convolutions
  • Pooling
  • Dilated Convolutions
  • Edge detection operators: Sobel & Scharr
  • ConvNets
  • DropOut
