Image recognition and classification is one of the primary challenges of the machine learning community. Recent advances in learning systems, coupled with hardware developments have enabled general object recognition systems to be learned on home computers with graphics processing units. Presented is a Deep Belief Network engineered using NVIDIA's CUDA programming language for general object recognition tasks.
