As a not-so-great artist, I needed another way to create art. Luckily, with a splash of TensorFlow, and a splash of math, I was able to create my own Van Gogh paintings.


Convolutional Neural Networks are the backbone of computer vision. More broadly, CNNs allow a system to understand images. They are what power technologies like Tesla’s autopilot.

CNNs are also used to power facial recognition, object detection, and even natural language processing applications.

So how do they work?

Convolutional layers excel by digesting large amounts of data, then reducing it into an easily understood form.
