Announcing Model Assisted Labeling

Now you can use trained models to speed up your annotation flow. One of the most time-consuming parts of the computer vision workflow is curating a high-quality dataset. When we

Teams for All: Create Free Teams on Roboflow

Machine learning is a team sport, and getting a computer vision model to production is no exception. All parts of the process are improved with a team: collecting data from

Using the Upload API to Collect Images from the Wild

The key to production quality machine learning models is continuous iteration and improvement. The first step is getting a model that is "good enough" for your first version. But once

Introducing the Object Count Histogram

We are excited to announce the introduction of object count histograms, now available in the Roboflow dataset health check.

Roboflow Changelog: December 2020

Welcome to the first of our monthly changelogs where we will be cataloging our recent feature additions and improvements. Roboflow Organize * Added ability to rebalance train/test split [https://blog.

Revamping Train, Validation, Test, Split Management

Splitting data into train, validation, and test splits is essential to building good computer vision models. Today, we are announcing in-app changes to Roboflow that make it even easier to manage your train test splits as you are working through the computer vision workflow.

Hands on with the Roboflow Infer Web Application Interface Builder

After you train a model with Roboflow Train [https://docs.roboflow.com/train], you're provided with three immediate ways to use your model: a curl command, the direct URL, and

Evaluating Object Detection Models with mAP by Class

When evaluating an object detection model in computer vision, mean average precision [https://blog.roboflow.com/mean-average-precision/] is the most commonly cited metric for assessing performance. Remember, mean average precision

Train Test Split Guide and Overview

In order to ensure our models are generalizing well (rather than memorizing training data), it is best practice to create a train, test split. [https://blog.roboflow.com/train-test-split/] That

Introducing an Improved Shear Augmentation

Today, we introduce a new and improved shear augmentation. We'll walk through some details on the change, as well as some intuition and results backing up our reasoning.

Introducing Grayscale and Hue/Saturation Augmentations

Roboflow [https://roboflow.com] is constantly improving how developers can build better computer vision models based on better input data. One key piece to this puzzle is enabling users to

Explore Images, Annotations, and Metadata Easier

Keeping track of images and their corresponding annotations [https://blog.roboflow.com/glossary/#:~:text=annotation] is a challenge. Knowing which annotations map to which class, viewing image metadata, and seeing

The crazy story of how we got our .com domain

For almost a year, Roboflow (our computer vision dataset management tool [https://roboflow.com]) has lived at roboflow.ai [https://roboflow.ai]. It's served us well but we have always

Ontology Management for Computer Vision

As their projects mature and dataset sizes grow, most teams wrestle with their workflow. Slicing and dicing data is more of an art than a science and you will want

Advanced Augmentations in Roboflow

Roboflow Pro now supports Cutout and Mosaic. Recent research has shown [https://arxiv.org/abs/2005.04757] there is still plenty of room to grow model performance through augmenting our
