Nice summary of key Computer Vision conference – ConvNets rock!

Computer Vision – State of art

the entire vision community gets to ignore you when you insist that “manual feature engineering” is going to save the day

I think of Yann LeCun (one of the fathers of Deep Learning) as a modern day Descartes, only because I think the ground-breaking work is right around the corner.

It’s starting to become clear that the future power of deep learning is going to come with its own self-contained software package like Caffe or Torch, and not from a dying breed of all-around tool-belts like OpenCV or Matlab

ConvNets are here to stay, but if we want ConvNets to be more than than a mere calculus of shadows, there’s still ample work do be done.
