YOLOv7 Breakdown

In this post, we break down the internals of how YOLOv7 works and the novel research involved in its construction.

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

What is TensorFlow Lite?

TensorFlow Lite, often referred to as TFLite, is an open source library developed by Google for deploying machine learning models to edge devices. Examples of edge deployments would be mobile

Launch: Polygon Annotation and Labeling

Polygons have traditionally been used for training image segmentation models, but they can also improve the training of object detection models. Object detection models are typically much faster and more widely supported, so they're still the best choice for solving many problems.

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: Search Datasets and Assign Jobs

Roboflow Annotate has been used to label over 66 million images and as teams collaborate to manage large datasets, it’s important to find the right data for labeling and

Roboflow Changelog: May & June 2022

What's New in YOLOv6?

In this blog, we give a rundown of the changes made in YOLOv6 and our initial assessments of the new network and repository.

How to Train YOLOv6 on a Custom Dataset

The YOLO (You Only Look Once) family of models continues to grow and right after YOLOv6 was released, YOLOv7 was delivered quickly after. The most recent introduction is MT-YOLOv6, or

Launch: Roboflow Native iOS SDK

Constrained bandwith? Left without the option to extend production data beyond your local network or corporate firewall? In need of real-time inference speeds on the edge? The Roboflow Mobile iOS SDK is a great option if you are developing an iOS application.

Using Gaming Datasets for Game Automation with Computer Vision

As a child, I grew up playing Minecraft, a 3D block game where the only limit is your creativity. Players navigate their 3D block world, collect resources, 'craft' tools and

What is TensorFlow?

TensorFlow is Google's open source machine learning framework. They released it for the purposes of making it simpler and easier to implement machine learning models whether for natural language processing,
