Deep learning has emerged has one of the most important applications in the world today, image classification being one of its primary uses. Image classification is used in robotics, autonomous vehicles, IOT devices, etc. In this workshop, we will learn the basic principles underlying deep learning networks, how they are implemented, and how to visualize a trained network. We will use Caffe, which is a popular deep learning tool and apply it to an image database.
