Disclaimer: It is assumed that the reader is familiar with terms such as Multilayer Perceptron, delta errors or backpropagation. If not, it is recommended to read for example a chapter 2 of free online book ‘Neural Networks and Deep Learning’ by Michael Nielsen.
Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) are now a standard way of image classification – there are publicly accessible deep learning frameworks, trained models and services. It’s more time consuming to install stuff like caffe than to perform state-of-the-art object classification or detection. We also have many methods of getting knowledge -there is a large number of deep learning courses/MOOCs, free e-books or even direct ways of accessing to the strongest Deep/Machine Learning minds such as Yoshua Bengio, Andrew NG or Yann Lecun by Quora, Facebook or G+.
Nevertheless, when I wanted to get deeper insight in CNN, I could not find a “CNN backpropagation for dummies”. Notoriously…
