Deep Learning For Visual Computing

By Prof. Debdoot Sheet   |   IIT Kharagpur
Deep learning is a genre of machine learning algorithms that attempt to solve tasks by learning abstraction in data following a stratified description paradigm using non-­linear transformation architectures. When put in simple terms, say you want to make the machine recognize Mr. X standing in front of Mt. E on an image;; this task is a stratified or hierarchical recognition task. At the base of the recognition pyramid would be features which can discriminate flats, lines, curves, sharp angles, color;; higher up will be kernels which use this information to discriminate body parts, trees, natural scenery, clouds, etc.;; higher up it will use this knowledge to recognize humans, animals, mountains, etc.;; and higher up it will learn to recognize Mr. X and Mt. E and finally the apex lexical synthesizer module would say that Mr. X is standing in front of Mt. E. Deep learning is all about how you make machines synthesize this hierarchical logic and also learn these representative features and kernels all by itself. It has been used to solve problems like handwritten character recognition, object and product recognition and localization, image captioning, generating synthetic images to self driving cars. This course would provide you insights to theory and coding practice of deep learning for visual computing through curated exercises with Python and PyTorch on current developments.

    • The course is free to enroll and learn from. But if you want a certificate, you have to register and write the proctored exam conducted by us in person at any of the designated exam centres.
    • The exam is optional for a fee of Rs 1000/- (Rupees one thousand only).
    • Date and Time of Exams: 18th October 2020, Morning session 9am to 12 noon; Afternoon Session 2pm to 5pm.
    • Registration url: Announcements will be made when the registration form is open for registrations.
    • The online registration form has to be filled and the certification exam fee needs to be paid. More details will be made available when the exam registration form is published. If there are any changes, it will be mentioned then.
    • Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.

    CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE:
    • Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 8 assignments out of the total 12 assignments given in the course. 
    • Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100
