Extending CNNs beyond classification - Weekly Check-in 11

Published: 08/10/2020

End of Week 10  - 10/08/2020

What did you do this week?

Iterating on last week's trial and error work on making it easier to add and connect Neural Networks (using the PyTorch library), this week, I made progress on that part! After discussions with the mentors, I devised a way to create and connect Neural networks that will make playing with neural networks easy and accessible to everyone! I am currently working on extending the applications of CNNs beyond classification and have support for various tasks that use CNNs. 

What is coming up next?

I will continue working on Computer Vision related Custom Neural Networks and work on making the code flexible so as to not be confined to only classification applications of CNNs which is currently the case in the DFFML PyTorch model plugin.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Yes, I got stuck at finding a way to make adding the neural networks using JSON and YAML files as flexible as possible so as to make adding neural networks more user friendly. I will discuss my doubts and ideas to tackle this in the next Weekly Sync meeting with the mentors.
