About the Course

In this 2-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to train an Object Detection Model using Facebook's Detectron2. Detectron2 is a research platform and a production library for deep learning, built by Facebook AI Research (FAIR). We will be building an Object Detection Language Identification Model to identify English and Hindi texts written which can be extended to different use cases. We will look at the entire cycle of Model Development and Evaluation in Detectron2. We will first look at how to load a dataset, visualize it and prepare it as an input to the Deep Learning Model. We will then look at how we can build a Faster R-CNN model in Detectron2 and customize it. We will then configure the parameters & hyperparameters of the model. We will then move on to training the Model and subsequently to model inference and evaluation. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

The online course featured an instructor with a strong grasp of the material, but unfortunately, their teaching skills and organization fell short in effectively transferring that knowledge to the audience. Regrettably, technical issues proved to be a major hurdle, consuming a substantial amount of time as I had to navigate them independently. Moreover, the support provided was lacking in helpfulness, failing to adequately address the challenges faced during the course. While the content held promise, the overall learning experience was marred by the instructor's shortcomings and the frustrating technical and support issues. With improved organization, instructional methods, and better technical support, this course could offer a more positive and fulfilling learning journey.

Complete waste of time and money. The instructor just copied pieces of code from official detectron tutorials (which are publicly available and free!) and basically reads them to us. No further explanations/details, no insights. Extremely disappointed.
