Introduction to Transfer Learning

In this lesson, we will discuss transfer learning and some of its applications in the real world.

What is transfer learning?

We humans have an inherent ability to transfer our knowledge across different tasks. The knowledge that we as humans acquire while learning to perform one task is utilized while learning to solve other related tasks. The more related the tasks, the easier it is for us to transfer, or cross-utilize, our knowledge. Let’s further understand this with the help of these examples:

  • If you know how to ride a motorbike, then you can learn how to drive a car.
  • If you know math and statistics', then you can learn machine learning`.
  • If you know how to play classic piano, then you can learn how to play jazz piano.
