  • A short history of color theory
    Although a basic understanding of the color spectrum is rather easy to develop, color theory is an almost infinitely complex subject with roots in both science and art. It can therefore be a daunting task to learn about color composition in a way that is true to both art history and scientific truth...

  • Scraping for Craft Beers
    If you have read some of my posts in the past, you know by now that I enjoy a good craft beer. I decided to mix business with pleasure and write a tutorial about how to scrape a craft beer dataset from a website in Python...
  • The More You Know: Using Knowledge Graphs for Image Classification
    Humans have the remarkable capability to learn a large variety of visual concepts, often with very few examples, whereas current state-of-the-art vision algorithms require hundreds or thousands of examples per category and struggle with ambiguity. One characteristic that sets humans apart is our ability to acquire knowledge about the world and reason using this knowledge. This paper investigates the use of structured prior knowledge in the form of knowledge graphs and shows that using this knowledge improves performance on image classification...
