Tweaking EfficientDet for frugal training

  • 1. Centre of Research & Technology - Hellas


Object detection appears to be omnipresent nowadays with detectors being available for every problem available, covering solutions from extra-light to ultra resource demanding models. Yet, the vast majority of these approaches are based on large datasets to provide the required feature diversity. This work focuses on object detection solutions which do not rely heavily on abundant training datasets but rather on medium-sized data collections. It uses Efficientdet object detector as base for the application of novel modifications which achieve better performance both in efficiency as well in effectiveness. The focus on medium-sized datasets aim at representing more commonplace datasets which can be accumulated and compiled with relative ease.
