The release of TensorFlow 2.0 comes with a significant number of improvements over its 1.x version, all with a focus on ease of usability and a better user experience. We will give an overview of what TensorFlow 2.0 is and discuss how to get started building models from scratch using TensorFlow 2.0’s high-level api, Keras. We will walk through an example step-by-step in Python of how to build an image classifier. We will then showcase how to leverage a transfer learning to make building a model even easier! With transfer learning, we can leverage other pretrained models such as ImageNet to drastically speed up the training time of our model. TensorFlow 2.0 makes this incredibly simple to do.
