I am new to the machine learning field, but I wanted to try and implement a simple classification algorithm with Keras. Unfortunately, I have a very small set of data, so I thought to try to apply transfer learning to the problem; however, I couldn't find anything on this online, so I wanted to understand which are the best places to look for a pre-trained neural network. Do you have any suggestion in this regard? Which website is best for getting an idea on how to start a machine learning project?

Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


Keras itself provides some of the successful image processing neural networks pretrained on the ImageNet: https://keras.io/applications/

Other deep learning libraries also offer some pretrained models, notably:

Many pretrained models for various platforms can also be found at https://www.gradientzoo.com.

Moreover, if you are interested in some particular network architecture, authors sometimes provide pretrained models themselves, e.g. ResNeXt.


Since the question title is generic (and not specific to computer vision), I will give the NLP-related answer as well, in case it helps someone who stumbles upon looking for pretrained vector embeddings:

The two most popular pre-trained vector embeddings can be found on these links:

There are also a couple of less popular and/or more recent ones:

  • $\begingroup$ Do you think I should edit the title? Also, I am actually looking for a pre-trained texture classification model, but reckoning such a question to be too specific, I thought a general idea on where people look for pre-trained models would have been a good starting point $\endgroup$ – Eggman Feb 6 '18 at 8:38
  • $\begingroup$ As it stands, it is a general question, so assuming there aren't others like this on the website, this may be a useful source for everyone. However, I don't think someone with the answer to the specific question you have in mind will be drawn to this just from the title. $\endgroup$ – Zhubarb Feb 6 '18 at 8:44
