Real-time object detection coz YOLO!

Shagufta Gurmukhdas (~ShaguftaMethwani)




You only look once (YOLO) is a state-of-the-art, real-time object detection algorithm. The model has several advantages over classifier-based systems. It looks at the whole image at test time so its predictions are informed by global context in the image. It also makes predictions with a single network evaluation unlike systems like R-CNN which require thousands for a single image. This makes it extremely very fast. This talk teaches you to develop your own real-time object detection python application to detect and classify objects in images as well as videos in real-time, which you can use in your next self driving car!


  • Knowledge of basic Python and its syntax
  • Idea/Overview of deep learning as a technology

Speaker Info:

I am a deep learning enthusiast and have been exploring it since the past year and it has indeed been the first time technology has made me feel so excited ever since I came to know about the internet. Other than that, I am the initiator and organizer of Django Girls Pune. I'm currently working in HSBC Technology India, as a software developer. I am also a decent artist, and love to play the piano in my free time!
