Finished Lesson 2 and having trouble with the Kaggle Whale competition


I just finished lesson 2 and attempted the dog breed competition with results that were in-line with Jeremy’s from the video; I’m now attempting to do the same for the Humpback Whale comp ( but my results are terrible (.11) accuracy

Does anyone have any tips on how I should go about structuring my workflow? As of now I’m doing this:

(1) Basic data exploration (size of images, what does it look like)
(2) Test on simple model (i.e. no lr_finder, no precompute or training earlier layers)
(3) Precompute = False and training earlier layers (as found in Jeremys’ instructions)

Any tips would be rad!
