3D Object Reconstruction from 2D Images: A Review

In this series of blog posts, I hope to shine light on some of the existing neural-network based techniques for reconstructing the three-dimensional model of an object given its two-dimensional image counterpart. Along the way, I’ll review some landmark papers that tackle this problem in novel ways. Before we go into the details, here’s why […]

Getting started with TensorFlow and Caffe

UPDATE! Check out out my new post on How Prisma Works: An Overview of Artistic Style Transfer using Neural Networks. Thanks to a deep learning course I have enrolled for in college, I got introduced to working with docker images and tools such as Tensorflow and Caffe. In this blog post, I ‘ll go over the […]

The dotcom bubble of the late 90s

Of late, I had been reading a lot of news articles that frequently kept referring to the dot com bubble. It’s a term thrown around so often that I kind of got used to it for a while, till I realized that I didn’t really know what it meant. This sudden realization made me go […]

Git and GitHub for newbies

I admit that I never really had too much of a liking towards Git. I knew it was this magical piece of software that was created so that you could easily manage your coding projects. But the sheer number of crazy tutorials and documentations were a big turn-off for someone like me. I still went […]
