#Highlights2021 for me: our #survey on efficient processing of #sparse and compressed tensors of #ML/#DNN models on #hardware accelerators published in @ProceedingsIEEE.
RT/sharing appreciated. 🧵
Context: Tensors of ML/DNN are compressed by leveraging #sparsity, #quantization, shape reduction. We summarize several such sources of sparsity & compression (§3). Sparsity is induced in structure while pruning & it is unstructured inherently for various applications or sources. Various sources induce stru...Common structures of sparsi...
Likewise, leveraging value similarity or approximate operations could yield irregularity in processing. Also, techniques for size-reduction make tensors asymmetric-shaped. Hence, special mechanisms can be required for efficient processing of sparse and irregular computations.

Image interpolation occurs when you resize or distort your image from one pixel grid to another.


#computervision #IMAGE #DataScience #MachineLearning #DeepLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #Python #programming #Math #Stat #dataviz #DataAnalytics #AI #ArtificialIntelligence #data
Image interpolation works in two directions, and tries to achieve a best approximation of a pixel's intensity based on the values at surrounding pixels.


#computervision #IMAGE #DataScience #MachineLearning #DeepLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #Python #programming #Math #Stat
Image resizing is necessary when you need to increase or decrease the total number of pixels, whereas remapping can occur when you are correcting for lens distortion or rotating an image.

Incredibly happy that our @RoboStack paper has been accepted to the @ieeeras Robotics & Automation Magazine 🥳. @RoboStack brings together #ROS @rosorg with @condaforge and @ProjectJupyter. Preprint: Find out some key benefits in this 🧵: 1/n
You can now easily use ROS (both ROS1 #Noetic and ROS2 #Galactic) on a wide range of platforms: @linuxfoundation (not just a specific Ubuntu, any Linux!), @Apple #MacOS and @Microsoft @Windows - even on ARM processors including the new M1 (work still in progress, though). 2/n
Thanks to the tight coupling to @condaforge, this enables you to (very easily) install ROS side-by-side with thousands of scientific libraries, including recent #computervision and #machinelearning ones (think @TensorFlow, @opencvlibrary, @PyTorch and more). 3/n

@amaarora really explained #convolutions very well in #fastbook week 12 session which can be viewed here

I wasn't able to write a blog post explaining my learnings from the stream but would threfore write a 🧵

After going through 1st part of #convolutions chapter, have cleared a concept and was introduced to two new concepts.

1. How depthwise convolutions work (3/n)
2. Dilated convolutions (7/n)
3. Alternate interpretation of #stride (9/n)

When we have a n-channel input and a m-channel output, we need to convolve over not only 2-Dimensions (W x H) but also across the depth D.

An RGB image for example has 3 channels

Let us consider we want to derive 10 feature maps from this input.

"torch.manual_seed(3407) is all you need"!
draft 📜:…
Sorry for the title. I promise it's not (entirely) just for trolling. It's my little spare time project of this summer to investigate unaccounted randomness in #ComputerVision and #DeepLearning.
🧵👇 1/n
The idea is simple: after years of reviewing deep learning stuff, I am frustrated of never seeing a paragraph that shows how robust the results are w.r.t the randomness (initial weights, batch composition, etc). 2/n
After seeing several videos by @skdh about how experimental physics claims tend to disappear through repetition, I got the idea of gauging the influence of randomness by scanning a large amount of seeds. 3/n

How does AI bounding box detection work?

🧠 Learn in 30 seconds

#100DaysOfCode #CodeNewbie #MadeWithTFJS #MachineLearning #ComputerVision Image
It looks so simple when #AI does it right?

But #machinelearning doesn't give you an image, it gives you data. It's up to you to make it look simple. Image
You might think a #FrontEnd box gives you four values, and you're right, but it only gives you TWO points. From that you can infer a box to draw with #html5. Image

This paper shares 56 stories of researchers in Computer Vision, young and old, scientists and engineers. Reading it was a cocktail of emotions as you simultaneously relate to the stories of joy,excitement,cynicism,and fear. Give it a read!

Some quotes from the stories - it was a "tough and hopeless time" in computer vision "before 2012, [when] the annual performance improvements over ImageNet are quite marginal."
"she told me you should solve the problem purely based on deep learning... I did not think the occlusion problem can be solved without explicitly reasoning of shape priors and depth ordering"

💡The challenge: teach my iPhone to recognize sharks and fish in images without writing a single line of code.

Let's see how close we can get to #NoCode #mobile #ComputerVision in 2020. A how-to thread 👇 1/13
Step 1: Collecting images.

I went to the Omaha Zoo and spent a few hours wandering around the aquarium taking photos. 2/13
Step 2: Curating.

After looking through what I collected I decided I to train a model to detect the following critters:

🐠 fish
🦑 jellyfish
🐧 penguins
🦈 sharks
🐣 puffins
🐝☀️ stingrays
⭐️🐟 starfish
🧑 humans, and
🐢 turtles.

Many of us are distracted by phones, tech, too many notifications etc, so what's the solution?

Is it really more tech? Such as these new smart glasses that use #computervision?… #Mindfulness #DigitalHealth ImageImageImage
At least they are able to offer a higher standard of privacy Image
I do wonder how accurate the activity tracking will be, given the accelerometer is at eye level. The last time I tried smart glasses, the distance walked/steps was far higher than they should have been (due to accelerometer above shoulders I am guessing)

Please help us welcome our next curator Darryl Takudzwa Griffiths. @BlaqNinja completed his Bachelors Degree in Computer Engineering at DUT, graduated in 2011. Due to struggling to find suitable employment he went on to study multiple certificates from bodies such as Microsoft.
He has certificates in N+ (Computer Networking), A+ (Computer Technician & Technical Support), Certified Ethical Hacking V7 (CEH v7), Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP). Sadly even with these, he could not secure his desired post so in 2016 he moved to USA.
Darryl was able to secure a job in a corporation that owns casinos as a system analyst & security architect. Within the same year he embarked on a Masters degree in Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Engineering. In 2017 he resigned from his post and started his own company...

Introducing RepNet, a model that counts repetitions in videos of *any* action

w @yusufaytar, @JonathanTompson, @psermanet and Andrew Zisserman


#CVPR2020 #computervision #deeplearning
Here's an overview of RepNet's architecture.
An integral part of RepNet is the temporal self-similarity matrix (TSM) which not only makes it easy to count repetitions but also drives generalization to actions and domains not seen during training.

Thanks to @turo I'm renting a #TeslaModel3 during my visit to Silicon Valley - certainly a different experience than traditional #carrental agencies #future #zeroemission #electriccars
Gone to Tesla's HQ in Fremont, California to try the supercharging there. It's supposed to be much faster than before.
I had hoped the Model 3 would charge at the new rate but it didn't happen

Now reading the the #TopolReview report - Preparing the healthcare workforce to deliver the digital future. It's an illuminating read #DigitalHealth
It's clear that a lot of effort has gone into the #TopolReview - it paints a glorious vision of what healthcare would look like over the next 20 years (for both staff and patients) - enabled by technology such as #genomics, #AI and #robotics
For me the #Topolreview has too narrow a focus. It's been commissioned by healthcare, yet we know that with an aging population, many people with long term conditions have to rely upon #socialcare as well. We need joined up thinking, imho.
