End-to-End Object Detection with Fully Convolutional Network

GitHub

This project provides an implementation for "End-to-End Object Detection with Fully Convolutional Network" on PyTorch.

Experiments in the paper were conducted on the internal framework, thus we reimplement them on cvpods and report details as below.

Requirements

Get Started

  • install cvpods locally (requires cuda to compile)
python3 -m pip install 'git+https://github.com/Megvii-BaseDetection/cvpods.git'
# (add --user if you don't have permission)

# Or, to install it from a local clone:
git clone https://github.com/Megvii-BaseDetection/cvpods.git
python3 -m pip install -e cvpods

# Or,
pip install -r requirements.txt
python3 setup.py build develop
  • prepare datasets
cd /path/to/cvpods
cd datasets
ln -s /path/to/your/coco/dataset coco
  • Train & Test
git clone https://github.com/Megvii-BaseDetection/DeFCN.git
cd DeFCN/playground/detection/coco/poto.res50.fpn.coco.800size.3x_ms  # for example

# Train
pods_train --num-gpus 8

# Test
pods_test --num-gpus 8 \
    MODEL.WEIGHTS /path/to/your/save_dir/ckpt.pth # optional
    OUTPUT_DIR /path/to/your/save_dir # optional

# Multi node training
## sudo apt install net-tools ifconfig
pods_train --num-gpus 8 --num-machines N --machine-rank 0/1/.../N-1 --dist-url "tcp://MASTER_IP:port"

Results on COCO2017 val set

model assignment with NMS lr sched. mAP mAR download
FCOS one-to-many Yes 3x + ms 41.4 59.1 weight | log
FCOS baseline one-to-many Yes 3x + ms 40.9 58.4 weight | log
Anchor one-to-one No 3x + ms 37.1 60.5 weight | log
Center one-to-one No 3x + ms 35.2 61.0 weight | log
Foreground Loss one-to-one No 3x + ms 38.7 62.2 weight | log
POTO one-to-one No 3x + ms 39.2 61.7 weight | log
POTO + 3DMF one-to-one No 3x + ms 40.6 61.6 weight | log
POTO + 3DMF + Aux mixture* No 3x + ms 41.4 61.5 weight | log

* We adopt a one-to-one assignment in POTO and a one-to-many assignment in the auxiliary loss, respectively.

  • 2x + ms schedule is adopted in the paper, but we adopt 3x + ms schedule here to achieve higher performance.
  • It's normal to observe ~0.3AP noise in POTO.

Results on CrowdHuman val set

model assignment with NMS lr sched. AP50 mMR recall download
FCOS one-to-many Yes 30k iters 86.1 54.9 94.2 weight | log
ATSS one-to-many Yes 30k iters 87.2 49.7 94.0 weight | log
POTO one-to-one No 30k iters 88.5 52.2 96.3 weight | log
POTO + 3DMF one-to-one No 30k iters 88.8 51.0 96.6 weight | log
POTO + 3DMF + Aux mixture* No 30k iters 89.1 48.9 96.5 weight | log

* We adopt a one-to-one assignment in POTO and a one-to-many assignment in the auxiliary loss, respectively.

  • It's normal to observe ~0.3AP noise in POTO, and ~1.0mMR noise in all methods.

Ablations on COCO2017 val set

model assignment with NMS lr sched. mAP mAR note
POTO one-to-one No 6x + ms 40.0 61.9
POTO one-to-one No 9x + ms 40.2 62.3
POTO one-to-one No 3x + ms 39.2 61.1 replace Hungarian algorithm by argmax
POTO + 3DMF one-to-one No 3x + ms 40.9 62.0 remove GN in 3DMF
POTO + 3DMF + Aux mixture* No 3x + ms 41.5 61.5 remove GN in 3DMF

* We adopt a one-to-one assignment in POTO and a one-to-many assignment in the auxiliary loss, respectively.

  • For one-to-one assignment, more training iters lead to higher performance.
  • The argmax (also known as top-1) operation is indeed the approximate solution of bipartite matching in dense prediction methods.
  • It seems harmless to remove GN in 3DMF, which also leads to higher inference speed.
