What you'll learn

  • Understand how to use multitask networks on mobile environments, particularly for use cases around driving


There are unique challenges running vision-based networks on mobile environments that go beyond object detection. Bruno Fernandez-Ruiz details a unified network that jointly performs various mission-critical tasks in real time on a mobile environment, within the context of driving. Along the way, he outlines the challenges that emerge when training a single mobile network for multiple tasks, such as object detection, object attributes recognition, classification, and tracking. Bruno then offers an overview of a pipeline for continuous training of mobile networks through hard negative mining and shares concrete examples leveraging a multitask network on a mobile device for advanced driver assistance applications.
