Overview of this book

Deep learning is the driving force behind many recent advances in various computer vision (CV) applications. This book takes a hands-on approach to help you to solve over 50 CV problems using PyTorch1.x on real-world datasets. You’ll start by building a neural network (NN) from scratch using NumPy and PyTorch and discover best practices for tweaking its hyperparameters. You’ll then perform image classification using convolutional neural networks and transfer learning and understand how they work. As you progress, you’ll implement multiple use cases of 2D and 3D multi-object detection, segmentation, human-pose-estimation by learning about the R-CNN family, SSD, YOLO, U-Net architectures, and the Detectron2 platform. The book will also guide you in performing facial expression swapping, generating new faces, and manipulating facial expressions as you explore autoencoders and modern generative adversarial networks. You’ll learn how to combine CV with NLP techniques, such as LSTM and transformer, and RL techniques, such as Deep Q-learning, to implement OCR, image captioning, object detection, and a self-driving car agent. Finally, you'll move your NN model to production on the AWS Cloud. By the end of this book, you’ll be able to leverage modern NN architectures to solve over 50 real-world CV problems confidently.

Chapter 14 - Training with Minimal Data Points

  1. How are pre-trained word vectors obtained?
    From an existing database such as GLOVE or word2vec
  2. How do we map from an image feature embedding to word embedding in Zero-shot learning?
    By creating a suitable neural network that returns a vector of the same shape as word-embedding and training with mse-loss (comparing prediction with actual word-embedding)
  3. Why is the Siamese network called so?
    Because we always produce and compare two outputs with each other, for identicalness. Siamese stands for twins.
  4. How does the Siamese network come up with the similarity between the two images?
    The loss function forces the network to predict that the outputs have a smaller distance if the images are similar.
