Demo – Faster R-CNN with ResNet-101

It can be seen from the previous screenshot that even in the case of varying object sizes and also objects with small sizes, the two-stage model of Faster R-CNN predicts accurately. Now, we will show how to run a similar prediction using TensorFlow. Let's begin by cloning a repository, as it will contain most of the required codes:

git clone https://github.com/tensorflow/models.gitcd models/research

After we have cloned, we will set up the environment. We will first download a pre-trained model from TensorFlow model-zoo
