A Brief Look Into YOLO Algorithm for Object Detection

Introduction

Walk around the streets of Los Angeles and I bet you five bucks a Model 3 will pass by every minute or so. Tesla’s best selling auto comes at a “bargain” price of just under $40k and is popular for reasons. The company has taken pride in being the first to popularize “smart” electric vehicle.

For those of us who just started diving into the deep void that is machine learning, convolutional neural network (hereafter referred as CNN) is a term often talked about when it comes to image classification. Most, if not all, basic image classification model uses CNN as its building block. The main reason behind this is due to the ability of CNN to process large amount of filters in parallel to a specific dataset under constraints specified by the problem, mainly image classification. …
