Michel Proulx will present an NAB Update -
Real Time IP based Media Networks and Network Management/Control.
Jochen Lang from Ottawa University - Introduction to Image Processing with Convolutional Neural Networks - We will review the fundamentals of the use of Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) for video and image processing. We start by briefly reviewing loss functions in linear classifiers such as support vector machines (SVM) and softmax classifiers. We discuss in some detail back-propagation in neural networks and its importance for efficient learning. The difference between regular neural network and CNNs is of great importance for image processing. Different layers including input, convolutional activation, pooling and fully connected layers are arranged into a complete CNN architecture.
