Deep learning has become a very popular approach for solving computer vision problems in recent years. In this talk Sander will demonstrate how this approach can be applied in practice. He will show how their team of 7 built a model for the automated classification of plankton based on convolutional neural networks. Using this model, they placed 1st in the National Data Science Bowl competition on Kaggle.
