Who is this presentation for?

  • Developers

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Familiarity with machine learning

Materials or downloads needed in advance

  • A laptop with an up-to-date browser installed (This workshop will be conducted on Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and will use GCP's infrastructure to run TensorFlow.)

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to classify images using deep learning, implement convolutional neural networks, improve the model by augmentation, batch normalization, and more, and leverage transfer learning


Carl Osipov walks you through creating increasingly sophisticated image classification models using TensorFlow. You’ll learn how to improve your models’ accuracy with augmentation, feature extraction, and fine-tuning hyperparameters while avoiding overfitting your data as you discover how ML is applied to image classification. Along the way, Carl outlines strategies for building an image classifier using convolutional neural networks.
