Pretrained Networks

Use pretrained image networks to quickly learn new tasks

Use transfer learning to take advantage of the knowledge provided by a pretrained network to learn new patterns in new image data. Fine-tuning a pretrained image classification network with transfer learning is typically much faster and easier than training from scratch. Using pretrained deep networks enables you to quickly create models for new tasks without defining and training a new network, having millions of images, or having a powerful GPU. To explore the pretrained networks available, use Deep Network Designer.
