What's New

  • Includes new capabilities such as panoptic segmentation, Densepose, Cascade R-CNN, rotated bounding boxes, PointRend, DeepLab, ViTDet, MViTv2 etc.
  • Used as a library to support building research projects on top of it.
  • Models can be exported to TorchScript format or Caffe2 format for deployment.
  • It trains much faster.
