Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) are one of the key components in the success of Deep Learning and the new Artificial Intelligence revolution. They are specially advantageous in tasks such as object detection, scene understanding and, recently, natural language processing. In this post I will explain what are CNN, what is the intuition behind them and provide an example of its performance in character recognition.
