Pretrained Classification CNNs

Learn to use pretrained classification CNNs.

We'll cover the following

Deep convolutional neural networks often require considerable computation resources to train. The good news is some deep CNNs trained on the ImageNet database (a large image dataset) are freely available for download. Their value in the context of automated inspection will become evident when we discuss transfer learning.

Let’s see what we can do with pretrained classification CNNs.
