YOLOv8 is designed to be fast, accurate, and easy to use, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of object detection, image segmentation and image classification tasks.

See the YOLOv8 Docs for details and get started with:

PyPI version Downloads

pip install ultralytics

Documentation

See the YOLOv5 Docs for full documentation on training, testing and deployment. See below for quickstart examples.

Install

Clone repo and install requirements.txt in a Python>=3.8.0 environment, including PyTorch>=1.8.

git clone https://github.com/ultralytics/yolov5  # clone
cd yolov5
pip install -r requirements.txt  # install
Inference

YOLOv5 PyTorch Hub inference. Models download automatically from the latest YOLOv5 release.

import torch

# Model
model = torch.hub.load("ultralytics/yolov5", "yolov5s")  # or yolov5n - yolov5x6, custom

# Images
img = "https://ultralytics.com/images/zidane.jpg"  # or file, Path, PIL, OpenCV, numpy, list

# Inference
results = model(img)

# Results
results.print()  # or .show(), .save(), .crop(), .pandas(), etc.
Inference with detect.py

detect.py runs inference on a variety of sources, downloading models automatically from the latest YOLOv5 release and saving results to runs/detect.

python detect.py --weights yolov5s.pt --source 0                               # webcam

Segmentation

Our new YOLOv5 release v7.0 instance segmentation models are the fastest and most accurate in the world, beating all current SOTA benchmarks. We've made them super simple to train, validate and deploy. See full details in our Release Notes and visit our YOLOv5 Segmentation Colab Notebook for quickstart tutorials.

Segmentation Checkpoints

We trained YOLOv5 segmentations models on COCO for 300 epochs at image size 640 using A100 GPUs. We exported all models to ONNX FP32 for CPU speed tests and to TensorRT FP16 for GPU speed tests. We ran all speed tests on Google Colab Pro notebooks for easy reproducibility.

Classification Checkpoints

We trained YOLOv5-cls classification models on ImageNet for 90 epochs using a 4xA100 instance, and we trained ResNet and EfficientNet models alongside with the same default training settings to compare. We exported all models to ONNX FP32 for CPU speed tests and to TensorRT FP16 for GPU speed tests. We ran all speed tests on Google Colab Pro for easy reproducibility.
