Launch: Deploy to Raspberry Pi

At Roboflow, our goal is to simplify all of the parts of the computer vision process from collecting images, to choosing which ones to label, to annotating datasets, to training

Using Polygon Annotations for Object Detection in Computer Vision

Benefits to Existing ModelsPolygons have traditionally been used for training image segmentation models, but polygons can also improve the training of object detection models (which predict bounding boxes). Object detection

How to Train YOLOv7 on a Custom Dataset

Hot on the heels of MT-YOLOv6, a new YOLO dropped this week (and this one is a doozy). YOLOv7 was created by WongKinYiu and AlexeyAB, the creators of YOLOv4 Darknet

Launch: End to End Multi-Label Classification

Roboflow has supported the entire process of creating object detection and single-label classification computer vision projects, from collecting and annotating images to training and deploying a model since our launch
