Introduction to Neural Networks

In my last blog post, I detailed the implementation of machine learning models in iOS applications using the Core ML and Vision frameworks. As you probably remember from the tutorial, I implemented the Inception v3 model to give the app the ability to classify 1,000 common objects in the world. While it is true that you can easily download the model from a Github repository, have you ever wonder where it came from? In this blog post, I will introduce the “brain” behind the Inception v3 model––an artificial neural network (ANN).

Stopping for reflection–Summer

dice-sketch-game-theory-thoughtful-businesswoman-standing-against-concrete-wall-connected-probability-73103748As the holiday season approaches, my independent study on Game Theory is also coming to an end. In my last post, I would like to take the opportunity to reflect on my work with Game Theory this past semester, some lessons I’ve learnt, and my plan for the coming weeks. Continue reading

Reflections — William

My independent project for this semester aims to create a report which compares several of the usual deep learning architectures using a set of grocery pictures. I started by watching and reading through open course materials and videos, which I found on the website of Stanford University, course CS231n. I also got in touch with a mentor from my hometown and sought his guidance on this topic. He is a graduate student at Fudan University, Shanghai. We arranged meetings every other week via Zoom and he has been helping me to better understand open course materials. Continue reading

Game Theory in the Norman Conquest–Summer

In my last post, I introduced you to a new form of game called Sequential Games. Today, I’m going to explore with you a historical application of Sequential Game, the Battle of Hastings during the Norman Conquest. Continue reading

Implementing a Machine Learning Model with Core ML Part II – Vision API – Kevin

In my previous blog post, I wrote about the implementation of a general machine learning model using Apple’s Core ML framework. In this blog post, I will continue my discussion of Core ML and focus on a specific aspect of the framework—computer vision.

Implementing a Machine Learning Model Using the CoreML Framework – Kevin

Recently, I have been experimenting with CoreML, the machine learning framework for Apple’s mobile and desktop operating systems. Rather than continue my discussion of linear regression, I will detail the implementation of a model with CoreML in this blog post.
