At its core, knowledge distillation is about transferring knowledge from a large, complex model (often called the teacher) to a smaller, simpler model (the student). Instead of merely training the student model directly on the raw data, it’s trained using the outputs of the teacher model…. Read the full blog for free on Medium.
