Creating Visual Recognition custom models
You can create IBM Watson Visual Recognition custom models, trained with your own images, to suit your specific visual recognition needs. This topic describes how to use the Visual Recognition model builder in IBM Watson Studio to create a custom model.
Before you begin
Set up your project to use the Visual Recognition model builder.
- Prepare your images
Collect a minimum of 10 images for each class in .zip files, and then upload them to your project.
- Train your custom model
In the Visual Recognition model builder, define your classes and add images.
- Test your trained model
After your model is trained, you can use the Test area of the model builder to classify test images using your custom model.
- (Optional) Retrain your model
You can improve the performance of your model by adding or removing training images and then retraining the model.
