Following is the list of tasks I intend to complete until Wednesday based
on my meeting with Olzhas :
1. Add a benchmark for the current implementation of 2D convolution.
2. Olzhas will probably add Opencv benchmark by Monday. I will then perform
a comparison between our implementation and Opencv's implementation and
post my results on the mailing list.
3. As suggested by Olzhas, I will add more test cases to cover additional
scenarios in #612 such as offsetting in a direction opposite to what I have
considered currently.
@lpranam, please share your opinion regarding this and intended
modifications (if any) in schedule. I will start working as soon as I get
your approval.
Best regards,
Prathamesh Tagore
