In the last week, I have spent more time learning about using fastai with a convolutional neural network, specifically the resnet34 and resnet50 models, which I think will be ideal for my purposes. I have also been working with Jordan to get the modules for this set up on Lovelace.
I have also been scavenger hunting for more data. I have data from Iceland, and a few confirmed spots on campus which I can use for both positive and negative training cases, but more data is better for this kind of AI. My search has lead me to reach out to Tom Hamm, Greg Vaughn, The Earlham Library, and the Geology department.
Over the next week, I will continue learning about fastai and start implementing my model to be trained over the data that I have already.
