Learn the Basics¶
Most machine learning workflows involve working with data, creating models, optimizing model parameters, and saving the trained models. This tutorial introduces you to a complete ML workflow implemented in PyTorch, with links to learn more about each of these concepts.
We’ll use the FashionMNIST dataset to train a neural network that predicts if an input image belongs to one of the following classes: T-shirt/top, Trouser, Pullover, Dress, Coat, Sandal, Shirt, Sneaker, Bag, or Ankle boot.
This tutorial assumes a basic familiarity with Python and Deep Learning concepts.
Running the Tutorial Code¶
You can run this tutorial in a couple of ways:
- In the cloud: This is the easiest way to get started! Each section has a Colab link at the top, which opens a notebook with the code in a fully-hosted environment. Pro tip: Use Colab with a GPU runtime to speed up operations Runtime > Change runtime type > GPU
- Locally: This option requires you to setup PyTorch and TorchVision first on your local machine (installation instructions). Download the notebook or copy the code into your favorite IDE.
