The fact that computers can see is just not that amazing anymore. But, the techniques for teaching a computer to do this are now simpler and more refined than ever.
In this webinar, Rajiv Shah described the process of building an image classifier using Keras with a TensorFlow backend and discussed how to extend the code to your own pictures to make a custom image classifier.
The approach here uses Keras, which is emerging as the best library for building neural networks. The code here also assumes you are using TensorFlow as the underlying library.
The presentation gives a basic understanding of image classification and show the techniques used in industry to build image classifiers.
You will learn:
- How to build a simple convolutional network
- How to augment the data
- How to use a pretrained network
- How to use transfer learning by modifying the last few layers of a pretrained network
The slides are available here.
Who should watch?
This webinar will be of interest to Data Scientists, Software Engineers and Entrepreneurs in the areas of Connected Cars, Internet of Things/Industrial Internet, Medical Devices, Financial Technology (blockchain) and predictive apps/APIs of all sorts.
