CNN, also known as ConvNet, is a special type of neural network and it is extensively used in Computer Vision. The application of a CNN ranges from enabling vision in self-driving cars to the automatic tagging of friends in your Facebook pictures. CNNs make use of spatial information to recognize the image. But how do they really work? How can the neural networks recognize these images? Let's go through this step by step.
A CNN typically consists of three major layers:
- Convolutional layer
- Pooling layer
- Fully connected layer
