In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to train and deploy a Semantic Segmentation model using Amazon Sagemaker. Sagemaker provides a number of machine learning algorithms ready to be used for solving a number of tasks. We will use the semantic segmentation algorithm from Sagemaker to create, train and deploy a model that will be able to segment images of dogs and cats from the popular IIIT-Oxford Pets Dataset into 3 unique pixel values. That is, each pixel of an input image would be classified as either foreground (pet), background (not a pet), or unclassified (transition between foreground and background).
IMPORTANT: You will need an AWS account to complete this course. Your AWS account will be charged as per your usage.
Since this is a practical, project-based course, we will not dive in the theory behind deep learning based semantic segmentation, but will focus purely on training and deploying a model with Sagemaker. You will also need to have some experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS).
