Now easily perform incremental learning on Amazon SageMaker

Data scientists and developers can now easily perform incremental learning on Amazon SageMaker. Incremental learning is a machine learning (ML) technique for extending the knowledge of an existing model by training it further on new data. Starting today both of the Amazon SageMaker built-in visual recognition algorithms – Image Classification and Object Detection – will […]
