Image Classification Data (Fashion-MNIST)

Thank you for your really well-written book. In the getting the data part, you have used double import sys statements.

I did not understand this part. What does ‘‘sys’’ works for.
import sys
sys.path.insert(0, ‘…’)

thanks

We use this statement so that we can import and use some python files written in some “path” directory. So sys.path.insert(0, path) will add path in our imports. And now we can import files from “path”.
I hope that makes sense.
