CNN Explainer: Interactively Visualize a Convolutional Neural Network
..to build an intuitive understanding.
Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have been a revolutionary deep learning architecture in computer vision.
On a side note, we know that CNNs are mostly used for computer vision tasks etc. But they are also used in NLP applications too. Further reading.
The core component of a CNN is convolution, which allows them to capture local patterns, such as edges and textures, and helps in extracting relevant information from the input.
Yet, at times, understanding:
how CNNs internally work
how inputs are transformed
what is the representation of the image after each layer
how convolutions are applied
how pooling operation is applied
how the shape of the input changes, etc.
…is indeed difficult.
If you have ever struggled to understand CNN, you should use CNN Explainer.
It is an incredible interactive tool to visualize the internal workings of a CNN.
Essentially, you can play around with different layers of a CNN and visualize how a CNN applies different operations.
