Photograph Showing Object Detection Masks, Bounding Boxes, and Class Labels

How to Train an Object Detection Model to Find Kangaroos in Photographs (R-CNN with Keras)

Object detection is a challenging computer vision task that involves predicting both where the objects are in the image and what type of objects were detected. The Mask Region-based Convolutional Neural Network, or Mask R-CNN, model is one of the state-of-the-art approaches for object recognition tasks. The Matterport Mask R-CNN project provides a library that […]

A Gentle Introduction to Object Recognition With Deep Learning

A Gentle Introduction to Object Recognition With Deep Learning

It can be challenging for beginners to distinguish between different related computer vision tasks. For example, image classification is straight forward, but the differences between object localization and object detection can be confusing, especially when all three tasks may be just as equally referred to as object recognition. Image classification involves assigning a class label […]
