SUMMARY: This project aims to construct a predictive model using a TensorFlow convolutional neural network (CNN) and document the end-to-end steps using a template. The Animal Image Classification Dataset is a multi-class classification situation where we attempt to predict one of several (more than two) possible outcomes.
INTRODUCTION: The dataset contains over 11,000 images of five different animals. The training set contains 1,500 training images assigned to each class. The validation set contains 500 validation images assigned to each class. Finally, the test set has a random number of pictures assigned to each class.
ANALYSIS: The Xception model’s performance achieved an accuracy score of 97.68% after five epochs using the validation dataset. When we applied the model to the test dataset, the model achieved an accuracy score of 96.09%.
CONCLUSION: In this iteration, the TensorFlow Xception CNN model appeared suitable for modeling this dataset.
