End of Week 1 - 08/06/2020
What did you do this week?
I had a lot of brainstorming sessions to decide on a well thought out layout for the project. Read lots of research papers, stack overflow answers, documentations and articles on image classification, pre-processing and feature extraction techniques. Tried out various image processing algorithms and feature extraction techniques and compiled a list of techniques and datasets I will be dealing with in the project. I had an individual meeting with the mentor where we discussed and decided upon the various ways we can go about the project. Also discussed the ways datasets would be handled by DFFML and what other possibilities there might be.
What is coming up next?
I will be starting on implementing ways to get the images from a dataset into the network and start wrapping various functions from the OpenCV library.
Did you get stuck anywhere?
Got stuck at lots of places like how will the image datasets get into the network and how will they be manipulated before finally extracting their features and feeding into a classification model, but got a clearer view on how things may work out after having discussions with my mentor.
Thank you for reading!
