Dog Classification using PyTorch, Azure, and Visual Studio Code

Rong Lu


In this workshop, we will use transfer learning to retrain a ResNet model using PyTorch to recognize dog breeds using the Stanford Dog dataset. The training jobs will be submitted to the Azure Machine Learning service to run on Azure compute. Once the model is trained, we will deploy it as a web service and send a few pictures to test! Along the way, you’ll use Azure Notebooks, Visual Studio Code, and Azure Machine Learning service. Learning objectives: - Train models using Jupyter Notebooks and PyTorch - Deploy models as web services and test - Learn how to use Azure and Visual Studio Code


Have you ever seen a dog and wanted to know what breed it was? In this tutorial, you will learn how to train an image classification model using transfer learning.
