What is Object Detection?
Object detection is a computer technology related to computer vision and image processing that deals with detecting instances of semantic objects of a certain class (such as humans, buildings, or cars) in digital images and videos with a bounding box.
Object detection algorithms typically leverage machine learning, deep learning and convolutional neural networks (CNN) to produce meaningful features from input images and classify them into various object classes.

3 Days of Learning
Challenge Day 1
The first day of the Challenge is about getting started. You will learn more about the different versions of YOLO and set up the data & code repository.
- Overview of the Challenge (objective, accomplishment, and prerequisites)
- Understanding YOLO (“You Only Look Once” ) and its different versions
- Getting familiar with COCO dataset and its labels and format
- Reviewing the PyTorch framework that will be used for the Challenge
- Setting up code repository and data (importing libraries, etc.)
What students say
“I’m a software engineer and want to get more into data science. This 3 day object detection Challenge was an ideal intro to learn the entire process.”
Computer Vision Student
“For me, computer vision is absolutely fascinating and I was looking for a training to do my first object detection project. I found it with this Challenge!”
“At the end, it is always about practice to improve ML skills. This 3 day object detection Challenge was perfect to learn and accomplish an actual result.”
