Neural Networks is the biggest discovery of the human mind with creating a network which possesses similar qualities as that of the human brain and allows machines to think. Machines think, learn and execute tasks which are possible for the only human with the help of these neural networks only. The type of a neural network which has allowed machines to visualize images and differ one from another has become possible with the help of Convolutional Neural Networks. Convolutional Neural networks make it possible for machines to visualiZe world like humans and thus becomes an important concept to learn while working in Computer vision.

Computer vision has made computers to perform several of those impossible tasks which were once controlled and done by only humans. Computer vision used in surveillance, medical imaging system, navigation, inspection has made it possible for computers to be smart enough to detect what is going in the world like the human eyes. Now computers too possess eyes like humans and this is all possible with the help of convolutional neural networks. Inspired by the neurons in human brains Convolutional Neural Networks are integrated into machines to provide machines with eyes and allowed them for visual imaging. Visual imaging, video classification, object detection- all have become possible with the help of Convolutional Neural Networks embedded into the system.

As a beginner in computer vision, it thus becomes very important to learn convolutional neural networks and skills to build algorithms related to it. There are various online resources that you can follow while learning Convolutional Neural Networks. On the same part, I must recommend the following youtube video of Edureka on Convolutional Neural Network.

The video is readily available on the internet and will provide you with an understanding of Convolutional Neural Networks in detail. The video will take you to the answers of a series of questions like What are Convolutional Neural Networks? How the computer reads an image? Why do we need Convolutional Neural Networks and will clear your concepts step by step? The video will take the most important part of implementing Convolutional Neural Networks with the help of tensorFlow. As TensorFlow is the most used deep learning framework in the present times by the big companies, it thus becomes very important to implement Convolutional Neural Networks with the help of tensorFlow. Not only will it boost your knowledge of using tensorFlow but also give you an in-depth understanding of Convolutional Neural Networks.
