Classifying Satellite imagery using Machine Learning

Classifying Satellite imagery using Machine Learning

CreateML was released at WWDC 2018. CreateML is proof that Apple is committed to making it easier for you to introduce basic concepts of machine learning to students. CreateML speeds up the workflow for improving your model by improving your data while also flattening the learning curve by doing all the heavy lifting in the comfort of Xcode and Swift.

I have introduced this project as a means to introduce students to Machine Learning terminology as you gain an understanding of the Machine Learning toolsets. Students don’t need to use any mathematics, you certainly don’t need to know how to write compilers and you don’t need to write an algorithm to use the classifier.

The video below his separated into two parts. The first demonstrates how to create an Image Classifier model and the second shows students how to integrate the model into an Xcode project and the GitHub project will allow you to drag and drop your trained model into Xcode and build the project to your phone.
