Deep Learning in the Real World: How to Deal with Non-differentiable Loss Functions

Over the past few years, deep learning has been taking by storm many industries. From voice recognition to image analysis and synthesis, neural networks have turned out to be very efficient at solving a vast number of problems. Concretely, if you can define your problem as the minimization of a differentiable objective function, there is … Continue reading Deep Learning in the Real World: How to Deal with Non-differentiable Loss Functions

Angular and Tensorflow Rewrites Retrospective

When AngularJS framework was released, it sky rocketed to being the most popular front-end development framework. But after a few years, React, a competing front-end framework open sourced by Facebook, quickly gained traction and is now the most popular one. A big difference between the 2 is that React took a more loosely coupled approach … Continue reading Angular and Tensorflow Rewrites Retrospective

Augmented Reality with OpenCV and OpenGL: the tricky projection matrix

I've been working lately on computer vision projects, involving Tensorflow for deep learning, OpenCV for computer vision and OpenGL for computer graphics. I'm especially interested in hybrid approaches, where I mix deep learning stuff, opencv stuff, and classic OpenGL pipeline. The main idea is to avoid framing problems as black box problems, throw a neural … Continue reading Augmented Reality with OpenCV and OpenGL: the tricky projection matrix

The Virtues of Low-code Digital Transformation

When we speak of digital transformation, we have 2 kinds of considerations: strategic considerations (how tech can disrupt your business model), and operational considerations (how tech can streamline your operations). Here, we're going to speak about #2. I've been working lately with a large industrial corporation (1000s of employees) on a company-wide digital transformation effort. … Continue reading The Virtues of Low-code Digital Transformation

Building a Scalable React App with Next.js

For those who grew up in the 1990's, modern web development sometimes feels like massive overkill. It's now all about SPAs (single-page applications) with complex javascript frameworks, but let's be honest, does everybody actually need it? From an end-user perspective, for most use cases (corporate front-ends, forums etc), the old paradigm of static pages and … Continue reading Building a Scalable React App with Next.js
