Image and Text Recognition with TensorFlow Using Convolutional Neural Networks

Sophie Turol

tensorflow-dallas-forth-meetup

Convolutional neural networks (CNN) solve a variety of tasks related to image/speach recognition, text analysis, etc. These topics were discussed at a recent Dallas TensorFlow meetup—organized and sponsored by Altoros. The sessions demonstrated how CNN can foster deep learning with TensorFlow in the context of image recognition. The examples featured MNIST, a large data set of handwritten digits, and Word2vec, a group of models used to generate word embeddings.

Watch the videos below for more detail.
