I’m giving an open talk on the Deep Learning Robot, ROS and robotics software in general. Suitable, hopefully, for makers and those just curious about robotics.

The Art of Seeing: Integrating ROS, Caffe, OpenCV on the Autonomous Deep Learning Robot

The frustrating thing about robotics is the amount of time you have to spend on problems that aren’t really to do with robotics at all. The Autonomous Deep Learning Robot comes with OpenCV4Tegra, a specially accelerated version of the OpenCV vision library. It comes with Caffe, a neural network tool that allows you to do pretty good object recognition. It also comes with Robot Operating System (ROS).

So how hard should it be to make these work together and get your robot to recognise the objects that it sees?
