Just learning and have a few questions.
Fist what is meant by using a ‘pre trained’ model? If I have my own image set that I train with how is this model pretrained or how does this affect my model training? For example I’m using
model = models.vgg16(pretrained=True)
The doc’s say - Parameters: pretrained (bool) – If True, returns a model pre-trained on ImageNet
Looking at code examples when someone uses the pretrained = true in their code but has a training function on their own image set. What is the point of downloading a trained model when they are training it anyway?
