## Learning good image representation

This is a quick blog about an idea that occurred to me yesterday. I am currently working on experiments involving differentiable neural architecture, but the idea got me excited enough to write about it. We…

Ever since AlexNet was introduced in 2012, neural net research landscape fundamentally changed. With deep computational graphs, the possibilities are endless. We quickly iterated through a dizzying number of architectures such as AlexNet, VGGNe…

This is a continuation from the first post on exploring alternative neural computational models. To recap quickly, a neuron is fundamentally acting as a pattern matching unit by computing the dot product \(W \cdot X\…

Despite different variations of neural networks architectures, the computational model of a neuron hasn’t changed since inception. Every neuron has \(n\) incoming inputs \(X = (x_{1}, x_{2}, …, x_{n})\) with…

A while ago, kaggle hosted the ultrasound nerve segmentation challenge, which requires partipants to predict the nerve area (brachial plexus) in a given Ultrasound image. The task is to predict the segmentation mask for the…

You are to inflict maximum damage to the zerg army. There are two types of units - Warrior and Shield. Warriors do damage every second, while a shield protects your entire army for one second.…

Typically, a genetic algorithm works by the notion of maximizing the fitness. Consider a function \(y = x\), which is to be minimized in the interval \([-5, 5]\). One approach is use \(\frac{1}{x}\) as…

Given an integer \(N\), we need to find the number of integral pairs \((x, y) \mid x^2 + y^2 = N\), \(N \in [0, 2147483647]\), with a maximum of 100 such numbers in a file.…

Last week, I happened to read about Kleiber’s law while browsing through literature on natural evolution. The implications are really fascinating. It establishes a relationship between mass and metabolism as: \(metabolism = mass^{\frac{…

Today, I happened to type some random text and noticed interesting. This is a random sample of what i typed: gh jgh jg hjg hjg hjg hjg hjg hkg hjg hg jg hjg hjg hg…
