Overview of this book

Computer vision is a crucial component of many modern businesses, including automobiles, robotics, and manufacturing, and its market is growing rapidly. This book helps you explore Detectron2, Facebook's next-gen library providing cutting-edge detection and segmentation algorithms. It’s used in research and practical projects at Facebook to support computer vision tasks, and its models can be exported to TorchScript or ONNX for deployment. The book provides you with step-by-step guidance on using existing models in Detectron2 for computer vision tasks (object detection, instance segmentation, key-point detection, semantic detection, and panoptic segmentation). You’ll get to grips with the theories and visualizations of Detectron2’s architecture and learn how each module in Detectron2 works. As you advance, you’ll build your practical skills by working on two real-life projects (preparing data, training models, fine-tuning models, and deployments) for object detection and instance segmentation tasks using Detectron2. Finally, you’ll deploy Detectron2 models into production and develop Detectron2 applications for mobile devices. By the end of this deep learning book, you’ll have gained sound theoretical knowledge and useful hands-on skills to help you solve advanced computer vision tasks using Detectron2.

Fine-Tuning Instance Segmentation Models

The object instance segmentation models utilize results from the object detection models. Therefore, all the techniques introduced in the previous chapters for fine-tuning object detection models work the same for object instance segmentation models. However, object instance segmentation has an important feature to fine-tune: the quality of the boundaries of the detected objects. Therefore, this chapter introduces PointRend, a project inside Detectron2 that helps improve the object boundaries’ sharpness.

By the end of this chapter, you will be able to understand how PointRend works. You will also have hands-on experience developing object instance segmentation applications with better segmentation quality using existing PointRend models. Additionally, you can train an object instance segmentation application using PointRend on a custom dataset. Specifically, this chapter covers the following topics:
