Abstract: Advances in Computer Vision are the leading indicator of progress in the current AI resurgence. Applied Computer Vision is used today by hundreds of millions of users on a daily basis via mobile devices. Many of these applications have been made possible by revival of Convolution Neural Networks powered by advances in machine learning notably deep learning. Popular use cases of Computer Vision are image classification, object detection, scene segmentation and visual question answering. In this session, you will learn how to get started on your Computer Vision journey by learning the fundamental concepts and applications via both the theory and code. We will walk through examples of Image Classification and Object Detection in TensorFlow Keras learning to train and deploy computer vision models. The session will conclude with challenges in training and deploying computer vision models and a brief discussion on the latest in Computer Vision.
