  • Basic familiarity with machine learning
  • Basic familiarity with python

In this course, we will use transfer learning and Meeshkan to teach a machine to tell the difference between Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Koopa Troopas with over 95% accuracy.  We will then apply this turtle-detector to real turtle images in order to classify if the real turtles look more like TMNTs or Koopa Troopas.  You'll be amazed by the results!
