Deformable DETR model trained on LVIS

Deformable DEtection TRansformer (DETR), trained on LVIS (including 1203 classes). It was introduced in the paper Detecting Twenty-thousand Classes using Image-level Supervision by Zhou et al. and first released in this repository.

This model corresponds to the "Box-Supervised_DeformDETR_R50_4x" checkpoint released in the original repository.

Disclaimer: The team releasing Detic did not write a model card for this model so this model card has been written by the Hugging Face team.

Model description

The DETR model is an encoder-decoder transformer with a convolutional backbone. Two heads are added on top of the decoder outputs in order to perform object detection: a linear layer for the class labels and a MLP (multi-layer perceptron) for the bounding boxes. The model uses so-called object queries to detect objects in an image. Each object query looks for a particular object in the image. For COCO, the number of object queries is set to 100.

The model is trained using a "bipartite matching loss": one compares the predicted classes + bounding boxes of each of the N = 100 object queries to the ground truth annotations, padded up to the same length N (so if an image only contains 4 objects, 96 annotations will just have a "no object" as class and "no bounding box" as bounding box). The Hungarian matching algorithm is used to create an optimal one-to-one mapping between each of the N queries and each of the N annotations. Next, standard cross-entropy (for the classes) and a linear combination of the L1 and generalized IoU loss (for the bounding boxes) are used to optimize the parameters of the model.

Intended uses & limitations

You can use the raw model for object detection. See the model hub to look for all available Deformable DETR models.

How to use

Here is how to use this model:

from transformers import AutoImageProcessor, DeformableDetrForObjectDetection
import torch
from PIL import Image
import requests

url = ""
image =, stream=True).raw)

processor = AutoImageProcessor.from_pretrained("facebook/deformable-detr-box-supervised")
model = DeformableDetrForObjectDetection.from_pretrained("facebook/deformable-detr-box-supervised")

inputs = processor(images=image, return_tensors="pt")
outputs = model(**inputs)

# convert outputs (bounding boxes and class logits) to COCO API
# let's only keep detections with score > 0.7
target_sizes = torch.tensor([image.size[::-1]])
results = processor.post_process_object_detection(outputs, target_sizes=target_sizes, threshold=0.7)[0]

for score, label, box in zip(results["scores"], results["labels"], results["boxes"]):
    box = [round(i, 2) for i in box.tolist()]
            f"Detected {model.config.id2label[label.item()]} with confidence "
            f"{round(score.item(), 3)} at location {box}"

Evaluation results

This model achieves 31.7 box mAP and 21.4 mAP (rare classes) on LVIS.
