Create a model

Create a customized training model to automate your project and speed up the annotation process all while delivering quality results.

Step 1: Enter your model’s name and description

Go to Neural network and select New model. Next, enter the model’s name and description.

Step 2: Choose the annotation task

For Pixel projects:

  • Instance segmentation

  • Semantic segmentation

For Vector projects:

  • Instance segmentation

  • Keypoint detection

  • Object detection

Step 3: Choose a project

Enter the name of the project you’ll be running your model on. All the images in your project should be annotated and completed or else they won’t be included in the training. You can’t choose projects that do not contain at least one completed image. You can select multiple projects for your model training.

Step 4: Set your training’s parameters

Function

Description

Base model

The base model upon which your new model will be refined.

Number of devices (GPUs)

The details of the devices (GPUs) available to train your model. You have two options:

  • A GPU of 12GB

  • A GPU of 16GB

Epoch count

The number of times the dataset undergoes training. The epoch count ranges from 10 to 200.

Batch size

The number of images.

Learning rate

The model’s learning speed. The learning rate ranges from 0 to 1.

Image (ROIs) per batch

The number of regions of interest (ROI) per image. The ROI ranges from 2 to 512 and is a power of 2. The smaller the ROI, the faster the learning rate. Image (ROIs) per batch works only with Instance segmentation.

Evaluation period

The number of epochs per evaluation period. If the epoch count is 10 and the evaluation period is 2, it means that the dataset will undergo an evaluation every 2 epochs. The user will be reported of the best model that resulted from the evaluation period.

Train/Test split ratio

The number of images that need to be trained to the number of images that need to be tested. The train/test split ratio ranges from 0 to 100.

Gamma

Gamma is needed for the learning rate. Its value ranges from 0 to 1, and it will be multiplied with the learning rate.

Epochs for gamma

After you specify the number of epochs for gamma, the learning rate will be multiplied by gamma.

Step 5: Run training

When you’re done, select Run training in the top right corner. A pop-up message will tell you how long the training will take. Click Run training to confirm your action.

After the training is complete, your new model will be available in the Smart Prediction section.

Step 6: Model training metrics

You can download the training metrics when the model training is complete. To do that, go to Neural network, select the model training, and click Download.
