Hey folks,

I'm working on a post to help people get started on this challenge.

Here's my take on a starter notebook (still a bit of a work in progress): https://colab.research.google.com/drive/1TPcGmA8QLN1svUDSKxp9jTNWYac1OCwR?usp=sharing

It does roughly as well as the baseline, and should hopefully be a decent starting point. I'm working on a second notebook going into some more advanced tricks, so any ideas for things to include are welcomed!

I added a section on experiment tracking to the notebook and wrote a little report with a few extra thoughts: https://wandb.ai/johnowhitaker/rice_challenge/reports/Getting-Started-with-the-Microsoft-Rice-Disease-Classification-Challenge--VmlldzoyMDIyMzE0

Cool,thanks for the notebooks... I mainly just train on my local machine(It has it's ups and downs). Can we use pretrained models? e.g transfer learning?

Yes, pretrained models are fine as long as they are publically available.
