Rohan Chaudhari, an alumni from the Autumn 2017 cohort, has written an article on "Image Classification MNIST using GPU". We are very proud to share it on our website and hope you enjoy the reading. The MNIST database (Modified National Institute of Standards and Technology database) is a large database of handwritten digits that is commonly used for training various image processing systems. The database is also widely used for training and testing in the field of machine learning. It was created by "re-mixing" the samples from NIST's original datasets. The creators felt that since NIST's training dataset was [...]

On November 13th, the Parisian campus organised an Art Private Vernissage with its students. DSTI campus is delighted to have 2 new paintings on its premises - "Floriade 2002" and "Souvenir de Mer de Chine", by the talented Noël Durand. Mr Durand often works with part of nature that composes landscape. He can summon what is often hiding in the mass of information received during the direct confrontation with nature. In fact, he perceives his work as essays - operations through which one ensures the qualities and properties of something. What should be retained? Which symbols should be called upon? How can he [...]
