In this workshop, we will discuss the background and motivations for developing Train Your Network, a software aimed at facilitating the creation of customized computer vision tools for non-expert users. We will demonstrate how to use the developed tool to train customized deep learning algorithms to perform image classification, a common computer vision task, on datasets provided by the user. An easy-to-use user interface allows users with no previous programming experience to train their own image classification neural networks and use such networks to perform predictions on newly chosen images. Our goal is to create more accessible user interfaces so that coding abilities are no longer a barrier for developing computer vision applications.
