Peeking into the Neural Network Black Box

If you have ever come in touch with neural networks, you are probably familiar with the black box problem [1, 2]. Compared to many other algorithms from the glass box…

Tensorflow for cropping and rendering

In tensorflow, there are many usable features for tasks besides just for learning. One worth mentioning is the function for rendering framed rects for given boundingboxes that can be used…
Does Adding One Neuron Help Real World Networks?

Does Adding One Neuron Help Real World Networks?

Our researcher, Tonda Hoskovec, has long been thinking about the behavior of neural network training in the case of non-convex tasks with many local minima. This makes training difficult or…

Towards Efficient Multi-GPU Training in Keras with TensorFlow

At Rossum, we are training large neural network models daily on powerful GPU servers and making this process quick and efficient is becoming a priority for us. We expected to…
Data Hackathon at our Prague Lab

Data Hackathon at our Prague Lab

At Rossum, we just talked about how critical data is for machine learning and for us specifically. At the same time, we’d like to think we are doing some pretty…
Rossum’s Training Data

Rossum’s Training Data

Every Machine Learning project needs training data, gathering this training data is pivotal for the project success and for many challenging problems, it’s not a simple matter either. Well, Rossum’s…
