Running Scripts at Startup


And other Linux delights. Often there is a need to configure processes to start on startup and to restart on failure. On Linux systems this process is controlled via the systemd init system and system manager. Now, as with most things Linux, there are a lot of sources of information out there. Several of them … Continue reading Running Scripts at Startup

Playing Around with Retinal-Cortex Mappings

Here is a little notebook where I play around with converting images from a polar representation to a Cartesian representation. This is similar to the way our bodies map information from the retina onto the early visual areas. Mapping from the visual field (A) to the thalamus (B) to the cortex (C) These ideas are … Continue reading Playing Around with Retinal-Cortex Mappings

Understanding Convolution in Tensorflow

This is a quick post intended to help those trying to understand convolution as applied in Tensorflow. There are many good blog posts on the Internet explaining convolution as applied in convolutional neural networks (CNNs), e.g. see this one by Denny Britz. However, understanding the theory in one thing, knowing how to implement it is … Continue reading Understanding Convolution in Tensorflow
