Overview of the YOLO Object Detection Algorithm
Let’s review the YOLO (You Only Look Once) real-time object detection algorithm, which is one of the most effective object detection algorithms that also encompasses many of the most innovative ideas coming out of the computer vision research community. Object detection is a critical capability of autonomous vehicle technology.... Read more
Deep Learning Is Going to Teach Us All the Lesson of Our Lives: Jobs Are for Machines
(An alternate version of this article was originally published in the Boston Globe) On December 2nd, 1942, a team of scientists led by Enrico Fermi came back from lunch and watched as humanity created the first self-sustaining nuclear reaction inside a pile of bricks and wood underneath a football field...

Deep Learning Research Review Week 3: Natural Language Processing
This is the 3rd installment of a new series called Deep Learning Research Review. Every couple weeks or so, I’ll be summarizing and explaining research papers in specific subfields of deep learning. This week focuses on applying deep learning to Natural Language Processing. The last post was Reinforcement Learning and the post before was... Read more
Visual Analytics of Instagram’s #gopro hashtag with AI
Images have become a very common medium of human expression on the internet with the coming up of social networks. Facebook is the biggest repository of digital images ever. This trend is only going to intensify given the emergence of image first platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, also called... Read more
The Last 5 Years In Deep Learning
Introduction As we’re nearing the end of 2017 (and coincidentally the first day of NIPS 2017), we’ve come to the 5 year landmark of deep learning really starting to hit the mainstream. For me, I think of AlexNet and the 2012 Imagenet competition as the coming out party (although researchers have definitely been working... Read more
