This is a Caffe implementation of Google's MobileNets (v1 and v2). For details, please read the following papers:

Pretrained Models on ImageNet

We provide pretrained MobileNet models on ImageNet, which achieve slightly better accuracy rates than the original ones reported in the paper.

The top-1/5 accuracy rates by using single center crop (crop size: 224x224, image size: 256xN):

Network Top-1 Top-5 sha256sum Architecture
MobileNet v1 70.81 89.85 8d6edcd3 (16.2 MB) netscope
MobileNet v2 71.90 90.49 a3124ce7 (13.5 MB) netscope

Evaluate Models with a single image

Evaluate MobileNet v1:

python --proto mobilenet_deploy.prototxt --model mobilenet.caffemodel --image ./cat.jpg

Expected Outputs:

0.42 - 'n02123159 tiger cat'
0.08 - 'n02119022 red fox, Vulpes vulpes'
0.07 - 'n02119789 kit fox, Vulpes macrotis'
0.06 - 'n02113023 Pembroke, Pembroke Welsh corgi'
0.06 - 'n02123045 tabby, tabby cat'

Evaluate MobileNet v2:

python --proto mobilenet_v2_deploy.prototxt --model mobilenet_v2.caffemodel --image ./cat.jpg

Expected Outputs:

0.26 - 'n02123159 tiger cat'
0.22 - 'n02124075 Egyptian cat'
0.15 - 'n02123045 tabby, tabby cat'
0.04 - 'n02119022 red fox, Vulpes vulpes'
0.02 - 'n02326432 hare'

Finetuning on your own data

Modify deploy.prototxt and save it as your train.prototxt as follows: Remove the first 5 input/input_dim lines, and add Image Data layer in the beginning like this:

layer {
  name: "data"
  type: "ImageData"
  top: "data"
  top: "label"
  include {
    phase: TRAIN
  transform_param {
    scale: 0.017
    mirror: true
    crop_size: 224
    mean_value: [103.94, 116.78, 123.68]
  image_data_param {
    source: "your_list_train_txt"
    batch_size: 32 # your batch size
    new_height: 256
    new_width: 256
    root_folder: "your_path_to_training_data_folder"

Remove the last prob layer, and add Loss and Accuracy layers in the end like this:

layer {
  name: "loss"
  type: "SoftmaxWithLoss"
  bottom: "fc7"
  bottom: "label"
  top: "loss"
layer {
  name: "top1/acc"
  type: "Accuracy"
  bottom: "fc7"
  bottom: "label"
  top: "top1/acc"
  include {
    phase: TEST
layer {
  name: "top5/acc"
  type: "Accuracy"
  bottom: "fc7"
  bottom: "label"
  top: "top5/acc"
  include {
    phase: TEST
  accuracy_param {
    top_k: 5
