Kaggle’s Dog Breed Classification Workshop Recap – June 23, 2022

This week we hosted a free Kaggle Udacity Dog Breed Classification workshop. The notebook is based on a Kaggle project whose goal is to provide an estimate of the dog’s breed given an image of the dog. In this blog post we’ll recap some highlights from the workshop. Ok, let’s dig in.

First, thanks for voting for your favorite charity!

With the unprecedented circumstances facing our global community, Arrikto is looking for even more ways to contribute. With this in mind, we thought that in lieu of swag we could give workshop attendees the opportunity to vote for their favorite charity and help guide our monthly donation to charitable causes. The charity that won this workshop’s voting was the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF). The NPCF is a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer. We are pleased to be making a donation of $100 to them on behalf of the workshop attendees. Again, thanks to all of you who attended and voted!
