Part of the book: Artificial Neural Networks
This chapter intends to present the main techniques for detecting objects within images. In recent years there have been remarkable advances in areas such as machine learning and pattern recognition, both using convolutional neural networks (CNNs). It is mainly due to the increased parallel processing power provided by graphics processing units (GPUs). In this chapter, the reader will understand the details of the state-of-the-art algorithms for object detection in images, namely, faster region convolutional neural network (Faster RCNN), you only look once (YOLO), and single shot multibox detector (SSD). We will present the advantages and disadvantages of each technique from a series of comparative tests. For this, we will use metrics such as accuracy, training difficulty, and characteristics to implement the algorithms. In this chapter, we intend to contribute to a better understanding of the state of the art in machine learning and convolutional networks for solving problems involving computational vision and object detection.
