Implementations from scratch in Pytorch for Object Detection

This article is aimed at an audience who likes to look at the code behind the algorithms to understand how they work instead of reading the math behind them.

Intersection over Union (IoU)

Intersection over Union(IoU) also knows as Jaccard’s index is literally calculating the “Area of Intersection” of two boxes over the “Area of Union” of the same two boxes. In object detection you IoU is calculated between the ground truth bounding box and the predicted bounding boxes to estimate how close our predicted bounding box is to the ground truth.

IoU of 1 means…
