W2_A2_Test with your own image (optional/ungraded exercise)

Yes, a lot of people notice that the model we get here does not do very well on new images. The problem is fundamentally that the datasets here are too small to get a generalizable solution. Here’s a thread that discusses that in more detail.

We’ll try this cat recognition task with the same dataset again in Week 4 with a real 4 layer neural network and it will do better than Logistic Regression, but it still will not do very well on new images. Here’s a thread that does some experiments with rebalancing the input datasets to see how that affects the results.
