Is precompute = 'True' biased towards ILSVCR?

HI All,

I have heard precompute=‘True’ is more biased towards data from ILSVCR dataset. What if i have to train on a new Image data-set like Statelite , Medical Imaging or More complex data sets from Kaggle.

Will precompute=‘True’ is helpful in that case and to what extent?

Yes, usually the pretrained networks are trained on the ImageNet (ILSVRC) dataset, and so they’ve learned things about detecting photos.

You might still be able to use such a pretrained network on different kinds of images (like medical images), as the network has already learned something, which arguably is better than a random initialization. But you’ll probably have to retrain all the layers – i.e. you can’t simply add a classifier on top of the pretrained layers and only train the classifier.
