In the current article, I am presenting the results of my experiments with Fashion-MNIST using Deep Learning (Convolutional Neural Network – CNN) which I have implemented using TensorFlow Keras APIs (version 2.1.6-tf).
Generally, Machine Learning (or Deep Learning) projects are quite unique and also different from traditional web application projects due to the inherent complexity involved with them.
The goal of this article is, not to go through full project management life cycle, but to discuss a few complexities and finer points which may impact different project management phases and aspects of a Machine Learning(or Deep Learning) project, and, which should be taken care of, to avoid any surprises later.
Below is a quick ready reckoner for the topics that we will be discussing in this article.
Let us say, you have trained, fine-tuned and tested Machine Learning(ML) model – sgd_clf, which was trained and tested using SGD Classifier on MNIST dataset. And now you want to deploy it in production, so that consumers of this model could use it. What are different options you have to deploy your ML model in production?
One of the classic problem that has been used in the Machine Learning world for quite sometime is the MNIST problem. The objective is to identify the digit based on image. But MNIST is not very great problem because we come up with great accuracy even if we are looking at few pixels in the image. So, another common example problem against which we test algorithms is Fashion-MNIST.
Fashion-MNIST is a dataset of Zalando’s fashion article images —consisting of a training set of 60,000 examples and a test set of 10,000 examples. Each instance is a 28×28 grayscale image, associated with a label.
Usually, the learners from our classes schedule 1-on-1 discussions with the mentors to clarify their doubts. So, thought of sharing the video of one of these 1-on-1 discussions that one of our CloudxLab learner – Leo – had with Sandeep last week.
Below are the questions from the same discussion.
You can go through the detailed discussion which happened around these questions, in the attached video below.
