Transfer Learning for Fun and Profit

Transfer Learning for Fun and Profit

Transfer learning is exciting because it unlocks solutions that weren't feasible a few years ago. In fact, choices to compose from pre-trained models for computer vision tasks became abundant. In this talk, we will explore how to make these choices for image classification and feature extraction.
The analysis is inspired by practical use-cases where human supervision and compute time is often limited. The results are presented for two datasets across PyTorch’s model-zoo. First, a toy dataset where scale invariance is important. Second, a dataset from an object detection pipeline where rotation invariance is important. Lastly, we will cover the human success factors of such a project.
