densenet-201

Use Case and High-Level Description

The densenet-201 model is also one of the DenseNet group of models designed to perform image classification. The main difference with the densenet-121 model is the size and accuracy of the model. The densenet-201 is larger at over 77MB in size vs the densenet-121 model's roughly 31MB size. Originally trained on Torch, the authors converted them into Caffe* format. All the DenseNet models have been pretrained on the ImageNet image database. For details about this family of models, check out the repository.

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

The model output for densenet-201 is the typical object classifier output for the 1000 different classifications matching those in the ImageNet database.
