FAYA:80- A Closer Look at Deep Learning with Object Detection>>Deep Learning has been a real game changer in the field of Machine Learning, especially in Computer Vision. Although there have been other Machine Learning networks in use, Deep Learning has proved to outperform them exponentially with increase in data provided.

In Deep Learning, artificial neural networks are fed millions of images, the patterns of which are used by them to recognize other images, thus forming the basis of Object Detection. Autonomous vehicles, smart video surveillance, facial detection and various people counting applications, are all applications of this.

The 59th edition of FAYA:80 Trivandrum, A Closer Look at Deep Learning with Object Detection, will be a first of its kind in the city, and will deal with various Object Detection approaches like RCNN, Yolo and Retinanet. It will be a great opportunity for anyone who has started out with the concepts of Machine Learning to explore the exciting and vast world of Deep Learning through Object Detection.

Topics Covered

  • Introduction to CNNs

  • Object Detection Approaches- RCNN, Fast RCNN, Faster RCNN, Yolo, Retinanet

  • Hands-on Object Detection with Tensorflow


  • Techbites (Rahul Raj, FAYA)

  • A Closer Look at Deep Learning with Object Detection ( Dilip Thomas, Independent Consultant- Deep Learning)

Date & Place

5 PM, 4th April, 2018 |  Floor of Madness, FAYA

The Speaker

Dilip Mathew Thomas is an independent consultant and works in the areas of deep learning for computer vision, computer graphics, and data analysis and visualization. He holds a Ph.D. and a Master’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and Engineering from National Institute of Technology, Calicut. He has around 15 years of combined experience as a researcher and an engineer and has several publications in top tier journals and conferences. He is the first student from India to publish a paper at IEEE VIS, the premier forum for advances in visualization, and was also presented the CSA-IBM India Research Labs’ Best Thesis award.

FAYA:80 is a monthly technology hangout for technology enthusiasts by technology enthusiasts to break the ice, analyse and evaluate emerging trends in technology. Held on the first, second and third Wednesdays of the month at Trivandrum, Kochi and Kozhikode respectively, the series stands for Free Knowledge Sharing and aims to provide an open platform for entrepreneurs, developers and technology professionals to keep at par with the latest tools and technologies.
