Object Detection Demistified-State of art DeepNets





90% of data in the internet today is either image or video.The exponential rise of visual data has continuously urged researchers to develop robust and efficient Object detection algorithms,but CNN or R-CNN or YOLO or SSD which algorithm can give best results.In this talk I will try to cover salient features in some of the most influential works in this problem statement.The talk begins with intro to CNNs and goes into detailed discussion of state-of-the-art deep learning algorithms used for object detection.

Structure of the talk - The talk is structured into 3 sections : In the first 20 minutes we will have a talk on the architectures, then 10 minutes will be dedicated for some hands-on demo to build a CNN using Keras/Pytorch and the rest of the time will be for QnA.

Contents - The talk will begin with a discussion on Convolution Neural Networks and various terms associated like Convolution,pooling,activation used etc and there after discussing about the various state-of-the-art algorithms like R-CNN,Fast R-CNN,Faster R-CNN,R-FCN,YOLO and SSD.One of my analysis criteria will be on their speed at inference allowing real-time analysis.

Take aways :

  1. What is a CNN,what are convolution,pooling etc.
  2. What are R-CNN,Fast R-CNN,Faster R-CNN,R-FCN,YOLO and SSD
  3. How to implement a CNN using keras/Pytorch.


  1. Basic python or any other language programming.
  2. Basic knowledge of Machine Learning and Neural Networks.
  3. Most importantly an interest to learn a new concept.
