Assume one is using transfer learning via a model which was trained on imagenet.
Assume that the pre-processing which was used to achieve the pretrained model contained z-score standardization using some mean and std which was calculated on the training data.
Should one apply the same transformation on their new data?
Should they apply z-score standardization using a mean and std of their own training data?
Assume that the pre-processing now did not contain any standardization.
Should one apply no standardization on their new data as well?
Or should one apply z-score standardization, using the mean and std of their new data, and expect better results?
For example i've seen that the Inception V3 model which was trained by Keras did not use any standardization, and i'm wondering if using z-score standardization on my new data could yield better results.
