Master hands-on techniques taken from the latest research, and discover how you can customize open source models for your specific needs.
about the technology
Humans learn new things more easily when they build on existing related knowledge. Transfer learning applies this same principle to machine learning. This technique takes powerful pre-trained models and shares their existing knowledge to help improve new machine learning applications. The result is a massive performance boost to your models, especially when your training data is limited, unbalanced, or poorly annotated.
