Breaking Down YOLOv4

A thorough explanation of how YOLOv4 worksThe realtime object detection space remains hot and moves ever forward with the publication of YOLO v4. Relative to inference speed, YOLOv4 outperforms other object detection models by a significant margin. We have recently been amazed at the performance of YOLOv4 on custom object…

Getting Started with Data Augmentation in Computer Vision

Data augmentation in computer vision is not new, but recently data augmentation has emerged on the forefront of state of the art modeling. YOLOv4, a new state of the art image detection model, uses a variety of data augmentation techniques to boost the models performance on COCO, a popular image…

A New Video Tutorial: YOLOv4 in PyTorch

We heard your feedback! More video walkthroughs. Many users report that video tutorials help round out the edges of their knowledge to get the most from Roboflow. Seeing how others use Roboflow in real-time aids their own comprehension. Make YOLOv4 more accessible. YOLOv4 is a mere month old, and given…

Introducing a Thermal Infrared Dataset for Object Detection

Computer vision is performed on a wide array of imaging data: photographs, screenshots, videos. Commonly, this data is captured in similar perception to how humans see – along the visible red, green, and blue (RGB) color spectrum. However, there's growing interest in processing images beyond the visible color scheme. Thermal image…

How to Train YOLOv4 on a Custom Dataset

In this tutorial, we walkthrough how to train YOLOv4 for state-of-the-art object detection on your own dataset, with varying number of classes. Train YOLOv4 on a custom dataset with this tutorial on Darknet! (photo credit)We will take the following steps to implement YOLOv4 on our custom data: Introducing YOLO…

How to Use the GPU within a Docker Container

In this post, we walk through the steps required to access your machine's GPU within a Docker container. Configuring the GPU on your machine can be immensely difficult. The configuration steps change based on your machine's operating system and the kind of NVIDIA GPU that your machine has. To add…
