  • 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!

Who this course is for:

  • Beginner python developers curious about transfer learning
  • Users of Slack
