YOLO: Basic question


Does YOLO classify and identifies at the same time? If so, does YOLO has it’s own classifier or does it allow the choice users of classifier?

Thank You,

It does both at the same time. It outputs a fixed number of detections. Each detection consists of a bounding box and a class score.

The real work is done by the Darknet feature extractor, which is a convnet. The classifier and the bounding box coordinate prediction are simply a couple of layers on top of those extracted features.

I wrote a blog post about how this works: http://machinethink.net/blog/object-detection/
