Like the last post, this post is mostly a redirect to a notebook.

Car rotating

For a project last semester, my team used the SmallNORB dataset. We were implementing Capsule Networks and the SmallNORB dataset is potentially supposed to show how great Capsule Networks are at encoding pose!

I fought with struct and endianness, and finally found a few lines of Python code that would parse the file into a numpy array. I also explored the dataset a little and created an interactive widget that lets you rotate the little figures.
