Welcome to our guide on Image Classification using TensorFlow and Keras. In this guide, we will be covering everything from the basic theory behind image classification to the complexities of modern deep learning models. We will also be providing practical code examples throughout the guide.
Image classification is one of the most important applications of machine learning. It is used in a variety of scenarios, such as security (facial recognition, for example), medicine (classifying X-rays or MRIs), and autonomous vehicles (identifying objects on the road).
There are two main types of image classification: supervised and unsupervised. Supervised image classification is where you have a dataset of labeled images (for example, “this is a cat” or “this is a dog”) and you train a model to learn from these labels so that it can predict the label of new images. Unsupervised image classification is where you have a dataset of images but no labels, and you train a model to extract features from the images so that you can cluster them into groups.
In this guide, we will focus on supervised image classification using neural networks. We will use the TensorFlow library for training our models and the Keras library for building our models.
What is TensorFlow?
TensorFlow is a powerful, open-source software library for data analysis and machine learning. Keras is a high-level neural networks API that TensorFlow uses to build and train models. Together, these tools allow you to build and train complex models to classify images.
What is Keras?
Keras is a high-level API for building and training deep learning models. It’s easy to use and you can run your code on CPU as well as GPU. Keras also has a number of pre-trained models that you can use. In this guide, we will use the pre-trained MobileNet model for image classification.
Why Use TensorFlow and Keras for Image Classification?
There are many reasons to use TensorFlow and Keras for image classification. For one, both TensorFlow and Keras are open source libraries, which means that they are free to use and easy to modify. Additionally, both TensorFlow and Keras are highly optimized for numerical computations and can take advantage of GPUs (graphics processing units) for faster performance. Finally, TensorFlow and Keras offer a high level of flexibility when it comes to designing and training image classification models. In other words, you can easily experiment with different model architectures and hyperparameter settings until you find a model that works well on your dataset.
How to Use TensorFlow and Keras for Image Classification
Image classification is a process of assigning a label to an image. In this guide, we will use TensorFlow and Keras to build a neural network that can classify images of clothing, like sneakers and shirts. We will first create a training dataset of images, then train a convolutional neural network ( CNN) to be able to classify the images. Finally, we will test our CNN on new images.
Tips and Tricks for Image Classification using TensorFlow and Keras
Image classification is a challenging problem that has recently been tackled using deep learning by many research groups. In this guide, we will build a simple image classification model using TensorFlow and Keras. This guide assumes that you are familiar with the Sequential model from Keras. If not, you can check out my previous article on building a simple image classification model using Keras.
We will be using the CIFAR-10 dataset for this guide. The CIFAR-10 dataset consists of 60,000 32×32 color images in 10 classes, with 6,000 images per class. The 10 classes are airplane, automobile, bird, cat, deer, dog, frog, horse, ship, and truck. Here are some sample images from the dataset:

We will start by preprocessing the images using some standard techniques. We will then build a small convolutional neural network (CNN) to classify the images. Finally, we will evaluate the model on a hold-out test set of 10,000 images and compare the performance to other state-of-the-art models that have been trained on this dataset.
We have now seen how to build and train a convolutional neural network for image classification using TensorFlow and Keras. We have also seen how to evaluate the model and use it to make predictions on new images.
