Object Detection with Azure Custom Vision

In this hands-on lab, you are working as an AI Engineer for The Root, a chain of supermarket stores. You’ve been asked to perform object detection of some vegetables so the company can sort out their inventory. You’ll use the Azure Custom Vision portal to upload pre-provided images, label the individual objects as either bell peppers or carrots, and then train and test your model.
