CVNets: High Performance Library for Computer Vision
AuthorsSachin Mehta, Farzad Abdolhosseini, Mohammad Rastegari
We introduce CVNets, a high-performance open-source library for training deep neural networks for visual recognition tasks, including classification, detection, and segmentation. CVNets supports image and video understanding tools, including data loading, data transformations, novel data sampling methods, and implementations of several standard networks with similar or better performance than previous studies.
Apple started using deep learning for face detection in iOS 10. With the release of the Vision framework, developers can now use this technology and many other computer vision algorithms in their apps. We faced significant challenges in developing the framework so that we could preserve user privacy and run efficiently on-device. This article discusses these challenges and describes the face detection algorithm.
