Chapter 8. Training Models
“Ask not for a lighter burden, but for broader shoulders.”
While the supply of impressive models and data will continue to grow and overflow, it’s reasonable that you’ll want to do more than just consume TensorFlow.js models. You’ll come up with the idea that’s never been done before, and there won’t be an off-the-shelf option that day. It’s time for you to train your own model.
Yes, this is the task where the best minds in the world compete. While libraries could be written about the math, strategy, and methodology of training models, a core understanding will be vital. It’s crucial that you become familiar with the basic concepts and benefits of training a model with TensorFlow.js to take full advantage of the framework.
