Train YOLOv4-tiny on Custom Data - Lightning Fast Object Detection

YOLOv4-tiny has been released! You can use YOLOv4-tiny for much faster training and much faster detection. In this article, we will walk through how to train YOLOv4-tiny on your own data to detect your own custom objects. YOLOv4-tiny is especially useful if you have limited compute resources in either research…

YOLOv5 New Version - Improvements And Evaluation

On June 25th, the first official version of YOLOv5 was released by Ultralytics. In this post, we will discuss the novel technologies deployed in the first YOLOv5 version and analyze preliminary performance results of the new model. 6/25 - The initial release of YOLOv5 shows promise of state of…

Why and How to Implement Random Rotate Data Augmentation

Computer vision data augmentation is a powerful way to improve the performance of our computer vision models without needing to collect additional data. We create new versions of our images based on the originals but introduce deliberate imperfections. This helps our model learn what an object generally looks like rather…

How to Train Detectron2 on Custom Object Detection Data

In this post, we will walk through how to train Detectron2 to detect custom objects in this Detectron2 Colab notebook. After reading, you will be able to train your custom Detectron2 detector by changing only one line of code for your custom data import! Detectron2 provides a flexible framework to…

How to Build a Custom Open Images Dataset for Object Detection

We are excited to announce integration with the Open Images Dataset and the release of two new public datasets encapsulating subdomains of the Open Images Dataset: Vehicles Object Detection and Shellfish Object Detection. In this post, we will walk through how to make your own custom Open Images dataset. Vehicles…

Responding to the Controversy about YOLOv5

We appreciate the machine learning community's feedback, and we're publishing additional details on our methodology.(Note: On June 14, we've incorporated updates from YOLOv4 author Alexey Bochkovskiy, YOLOv5 author Glenn Jocher, and others in the community.) YOLOv5 released the first official version June 30th - Many of the metrics in…
