This project is an aid to the blind. Till date there has been no technological advancement in the way the blind navigate. So I have used deep learning particularly convolutional neural networks so that they can navigate through the streets.
meta description: Making a deep convolutional neural network smaller and faster.
A user-friendly explanation how to compress CNN models - by removing full filters filters from a layer (GPU friendly, unlike sparse layers). L1-norm used for picking candidates for removal. Optimized MobileNet by 25%.
