What is transfer learning. A brief explanation

To answer this question, let's take an example. We all learned to recognize colours by being introduced to the objects in those colours first. Strawberry, tomato, pepper and fire truck were probably enough to understand the concept of redness. Once we catch what the red colour is we can correctly identify it on flowers, cars, abstract paintings and also on many real-world objects that we’ve never come across before. This is transfer learning.

AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning. Why should I care?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a research field focused on creating solutions that can independently make decisions and actions aimed at a specific result. If it scared you a little, you probably remembered movies or fantasy books about robots taking over control of the world. No wonder. Research and development of AI have been ongoing since the 50 of the last century, with the computers’ development.
