Convolutional Neural Network: Building the Xception Model

Building the Xception Model   In recent years, there have been many breakthroughs in the development of Deep Learning using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN). One of the latest and most accurate models is the Xception architecture. This model, developed by François Chollet in 2017, overtook the previous records in both speed and accuracy held by …

Understanding a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN)

Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) What is a CNN? A Convolutional Neural Network (CNN or ConvNet) is a type of fully connected deep learning neural network. The network’s name originates from the convolution mathematical operation in place of general matrix multiplication in at least one layer. With the inclusion of convolutional layers, the CNN design more …
