This project aims to exploit the ability of Deep Belief Network (DBN) to classify (and generate) multiclass objects. Initially, they will be used to classify road signs with the purpose help the navigation of an hypotetical autonomous car. Since the initial results on the classification tasks of road signs using DBN are very good, we are pretty confident about the quality of the project.

Deep learning and Deep Belief Network

Deep learning is a set of algorithms in machine learning that attempt to model high-level abstractions in data by using architectures composed of multiple non-linear transformations. A deep belief network (DBN) is a generative graphical model, or alternatively a type of deep neural network, composed of multiple layers of latent variables ("hidden units"), with connections between the layers but not between units within each layer. More precisely, each layer acts as a feature detector on inputs and serves as the visible layer for the next.
