How Do Convolutional Neural Networks Work

Nine times out of ten, when you hear about deep learning breaking a new technological barrier, Convolutional Neural Networks are involved. Also called CNNs or ConvNets, these are the workhorse of the deep neural network field. They have learned to sort images into categories even better than humans in some cases. If there’s one method out there that justifies the…

Please say no to React!

Many people are currently assessing React Native as a platform to develop their next mobile app on. This is no trivial matter. Switching your software development platform involves a high setup cost and will profoundly impact your daily programming workflow. It is also one of the costliest decisions to reverse after anything substantial has been built. Perhaps more importantly, your…

Example of Functional Programming in C++

Functional programming becomes more prominent even in C++ these days, but sometimes the resulting code can feel awkward — especially with all the iterators one has to provide for the STL algorithms. FunctionalPlus (a small header-only library) can help overcome this issue and make your code concise and readable again. This article is targeted towards C++ programmers new to FunctionalPlus and with…
