Siraj Raval has designed a free curriculum to help anyone learn Computer Vision in the most efficient way possible.

My curriculum starts off with low level vision techniques and progressively increases in difficulty until we get to high level analysis techniques i.e deep learning. Don’t worry if you’ve never coded before, i’ve included links to help you learn Python as well. Now is the time to build computer vision solutions, the world needs these menial tasks automated to help liberate humans from drudgery. The tools needed are python, OpenCV, and Tensorflow, all of which have their place and I’ll explain all the details of how it fits together in this video. Enjoy!

With BitCoin prices on the rise again, the hype machine has turned its focus back onto the technology. In a few days, expect the rally to retreat again and pundits to say something along the lines of “Blockchain has no practical use.” They are, of course, wrong and Siraj Raval explains (and demontrates!) why in this video.

Healthpass is a secure cloud store for all your health records! This serves patients by giving them one place to store and view all of their health data across all providers globally. It serves providers by ensuring that health records are stored securely via a blockchain and allows them to see a patients previous health history easily. To build this app I used Node.js, Firebase, Bitcoin’s Blockchain, Paypal, Stripe, Tesserect.js, BioBERT, and a health data visualization library called hFigures. The reason I built this app is to give you an idea on how a “bitcoin” startup would look practically, programmatically, and visually. I hope this inspires you to build something cool and even managed to fit a rap about SHA-256 into it. Enjoy!

Siraj Raval has built and open sourced an app called Dr Source, your personal medical question answering service! It uses a model called BioBERT trained on over 700K Q&As from PubMed, HealthTap, and other health related websites.

He used Flutter to build an app around it and presents it to the world as a more thought out idea. There are millions of people in this world without access to healthcare, and while this app isn’t perfect, an automated diagnosis is better than no diagnosis.

Transfer learning is a statistical technique that’s been getting more attention lately that enables you to reuse a model for a different task than what it was trained for. In this episode, Siraj Raval shows you how to use transfer learning to predict instances of gold deposits using publicly available satellite imagery.

In this inaugural episode of his new podcast, Siraj Raval interview Bryan Johnson.

On the first episode of my educational podcast, I have a very special guest for you! Bryan Johnson is an entrepreneur and venture capitalist that sold his payments company, Braintree, to Paypal for $800 million. What makes him someone I admire is how he decided to use that amount of wealth to improve human life through Science and technology. He invested $100 million into Kernel, a neuroscience startup that he leads and another $100 million into OS Fund, a venture fund that invests in scientist entrepreneurs. He’s also an avid reader, which made for an amazing conversation. We touch on Artificial Intelligence, Science, mathematical mindsets, books, psychedelics, and so much more in this discussion. Enjoy!
