densenet-121

Use Case and High-Level Description

The densenet-121 model is one of the DenseNet* group of models designed to perform image classification. The authors originally trained the models on Torch*, but then converted them into Caffe* format. All DenseNet models have been pretrained on the ImageNet image database. For details about this family of models, check out the repository.

Performance

Input

The model input is a blob that consists of a single image of 1x3x224x224 in BGR order. Before passing the image blob into the network, subtract BGR mean values as follows: [103.94, 116.78, 123.68]. In addition, values must be divided by 0.017.

Original Model

Image, name - data, shape - 1,3,224,224, format is B,C,H,W where:

Channel order is BGR. Mean values - [103.94,116.78,123.68], scale value - 58.8235294117647

Converted Model

Image, name - data, shape - 1,3,224,224, format is B,C,H,W where:

Channel order is BGR.

Output

The model output for densenet-121 is a typical object classifier output for 1000 different classifications matching those in the ImageNet database.

Original Model

Object classifier according to ImageNet classes, name - prob, shape - 1,1000,1,1, contains predicted probability for each class in logits format.

Converted Model

Object classifier according to ImageNet classes, name - prob, shape - 1,1000,1,1, contains predicted probability for each class in logits format.
