Detecting Faces with Dlib from F#. IFSharp Notebook

The Choices I have experimented with OpenCV and Dlib face detection in my computer vision pipeline. Both work well, but the Dlib one worked better: it is more sensitive with (in my case) almost no false positives right out of the box! Dlib uses several HOG filters that account for profile as well as frontal … Continue reading Detecting Faces with Dlib from F#. IFSharp Notebook

Zooming Through Euler Path: Supercharging with GPU

So, continuing where we left off: Walking the Euler Path: Intro Visualizing Graphs Walking the Euler Path: GPU for the Road Walking the Euler Path: PIN Cracking and DNA Sequencing For the Win And finally I ran the GPU-enabled algorithm for finding the Euler path. And the results: Generating euler graph: vertices = 10,485,760; avg … Continue reading Zooming Through Euler Path: Supercharging with GPU

Visualizing Graphs

Previously Walking the Eule Path: Intro Generating and Visualizing Graphs I can hardly overemphasize the importance of visusalizations. Many a bug had been immediately spotted just by looking at a visual of a complex data structure. I therefore decided to add visuals to the project as soon as the DirectedGraph class was born. Code & … Continue reading Visualizing Graphs

Modelling Stochastically Independent Processes with F# Computation Expressions: Part 1

The idea for doing this is not new. There is an excellent series of posts closely tracing an article on applications of functional programming to probability. A colleague of mine has recently called my attention to his own post of two years ago, where he describes a monad that models stochastically independent events in Clojure. … Continue reading Modelling Stochastically Independent Processes with F# Computation Expressions: Part 1
