Episode 13: Convolutional neural networks
30 November, 2021
Continuing our series on neural networks, this time it is the turn of convolutional neural networks. Responsible for the great popularity of deep learning in recent years, convolutional networks have drastically changed how we design systems for images. In this episode we talk about convolutions, primary classes and COVID with our colleague Anabel Gómez Ríos.
Anabel Gómez has just published a paper on COVID-19 prediction from X-ray images, using convolutional networks. Anabel has a double degree in Computer Science and Mathematics, with a Master in Data Science and Computer Engineering. She is currently doing her PhD with a FPU fellowship on image preprocessing and analysis using deep learning at our institute, the Andalusian Institute of Artificial Intelligence DaSCI.
