I watched the Part 1 video last year, with fastai v0.7, and just i was amazed to see how much better fastai performs in comparison to other deep learning libraries. I then wondered how would it perform against itself, and needless to say, the library did not let me down. I found a paper written by one of my college senior in early 2019, using a thermal image dataset. At the time, they got a best case accuracy of 97.08% and a validation loss of 11% using resnet101 and fastai v0.7.1, which was achieved after multiple parameter modifications and model tuning.
In July, 2019, I present, fastai v1.0, resnet50 and 10 minutes of coding:
Model Accuracy: 99.38%
Training Loss: 1.4%
Validation Loss: 1.7%
My respect to fastai - destroyer of scientific papers (RIP) since 2017
