Comparing 5 popular neural net architectures on iOS: VGG16, ResNet50, InceptionV3, GoogleNet, and SqueezeNet using PyTorch.
In this article, we’ll use some basic machine learning methods to train a bot to play cards against me. The card game that I’m interested in is called Literature, a game similar to Go Fish.
The version of Literature that we implemented is roughly similar to the rules I linked above. Literature is played in two teams, and the teams compete to collect “sets.” A set is a collection of either A – 6 of a suit or 8 – K of a suit (7’s are not included in the game).
Transfer learning is a powerful technique for training deep neural networks that allows one to take knowledge learned about one deep learning problem and apply it to a different, yet similar learning problem.
Using transfer learning can dramatically speed up the rate of deployment for an app you are designing, making both the training and implementation of your deep neural network simpler and easier.
In this post, we’re going to do a deep-dive on something most introductions to Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) lack: how to train a CNN, including deriving gradients, implementing backprop from scratch (using only numpy), and ultimately building a full training pipeline!
