We manually converted the original torch models into caffe format from

Update (July 27, 2017): for your convenience, we also provide a link to these models on Baidu Disk.


Due to compatibility reasons, several modifications have been made:

  • BGR mean values [103.94,116.78,123.68] are subtracted
  • scale: 0.017 is used, instead of the original std values for image preprocessing
  • ceil_mode: false is used in the first pooling layers ('pool1')
You can’t perform that action at this time.
