9 Free Resources To Learn Transfer Learning

Transfer learning can be said as a shortcut to solving complex machine learning problems. In simple words, this learning is used to enhance the learning of the model, shorten the time as well as make the learning process quick for the current task. This technique can be applied in computer vision when the model has to learn from images or videos and in NLP techniques.

In this article, we list down the top 9 free resources in Transfer Learning one must-read.
