Summer in the Great Outdoors
She’s all the way in outer space.

Is Summer a cat or dog?

Has summer been classified as the wrong species her entire life???
Me getting an idea

Creating a Cat-Dog Classifier, to diagnose my catdog

What am I even going to do?

CNN classifying cats + dogs
The computer looks at small portions of the image and tries to understand what’s going on in that specific section


Stuff I imported for the Model


Let’s prepare the model

These cats know what’s up
I feel like this is bad parenting

I threw Summer in the snow
We went on an adventure
We had a midday snack

The Model:

Training time.

Testing time

Summer is freaking pumped. Also, Summer’s hair needs a good groom.

And the verdict is…


Summer being happy and shit because she finally feels like she belongs

Thanks to Aadil A.
