Face Identification: Siamese Convolutional Neural Nets

two minds are better than one

If that looks like a graph, you’re right. Neural nets are directed acyclic graphs.

I’ve always had a bit of trouble recognizing faces, but humans are generally quite good at the task. We’re not quite sure how the process works in our brain, but some on macaques indicate two interesting things: neurons fire in clusters to recognize ‘feature patterns’, and primates seem to learn the…
