We're introducing a new experiment this week:

Roboflow is launching a Roboflow YouTube channel.

We've been encouraged by the popularity of our computer vision tutorials. When Googling for some architectures, Roboflow content ranks at the top of what researchers, developers, and aspiring computer vision practitioners are finding valuable.

Increasingly, we've had our users ask us for a more guided approach to our tutorials. Initially, we were able to guide users with individual feedback. But the volume has grown, as have the nature of the requests. It's time to experiment with a new approach.

In January 2023, Ultralytics released YOLOv8, defining a new state-of-the-art in object detection. Learn more about YOLOv8 in the Roboflow Models directory and in our "How to Train YOLOv8 Object Detection on a Custom Dataset" tutorial.

Roboflow will be narrating tutorials we publish to our model library, new features, and more on the Roboflow YouTube. We're hoping this serves as a more engaging way to provide the support our users have come to expect from us. In time, it may even become a valued growth channel.

Our debut video demonstrates how to use our PyTorch YOLOv3 implementation, leveraging an implementation from Ultralytics, but making it even easier to use your own dataset for training. We continue to encourage feedback through Roboflow Support and help@roboflow.ai.

While we don't anticipate ever reaching the trending page, we humbly ask that you might "smash that like and subscribe button" to get more Roboflow computer vision videos in the interim.
