Object Detection Base Model

What is DETIC?

DETIC is a transformer-based object detection and segmentation model developed by Meta Research.


To use DETIC with autodistill, you need to install the following dependency:

pip3 install autodistill-detic


from autodistill_detic import DETIC
from autodistill.detection import CaptionOntology

# define an ontology to map class names to our DETIC prompt
# the ontology dictionary has the format {caption: class}
# where caption is the prompt sent to the base model, and class is the label that will
# be saved for that caption in the generated annotations
# then, load the model
base_model = DETIC(
            "person": "person",
base_model.label("./context_images", extension=".jpg")
