Here’s an interesting tutorial on prepping image data for CNNs.

It is challenging to know how to best prepare image data when training a convolutional neural network. This involves both scaling the pixel values and use of augmentation techniques during both the training and evaluation of the model. Instead of testing a wide range of options, a useful shortcut […]

Tomorrow is the first day of Build 2019. While I won’t be there physically, I will be there in spirit (and watching via livestream).

Be sure to look for AI & Data Science highlights from Build here on FranksWorld.com!

As Microsoft’s annual developer conference, Build has been the main stage for debuting most of the company’s consumer-facing announcements. Build offers tech talks and training sessions for developers to catch up with the most recent news and updates. Microsoft has already rolled out a partial schedule for the event, which features 592 sessions covering topics such as Containers, AI and ML, Serverless computing, IOT, Mixed reality, power platforms, etc.
