Can I use Retail Object Detection .pth files for training without using TAO?

Hi,

Can I use Retail Object Detection | NVIDIA NGC files for training?I have retail dataset as well but I want to use pretrained model. I couldn’t install TAO thats why I want to use pretrained model without TAO. How can I do that? Can you assist me?

In TAO, you can use it to run training. Refer to its notebook. tao_tutorials/notebooks/tao_launcher_starter_kit/retail_object_detection/retail_object_detection.ipynb at main · NVIDIA/tao_tutorials · GitHub.
This model is expected to run with TAO. Not sure its status for other framework.

So, You want to tell me I can’t use retail_object_detection_binary_v2.1.2.pth without TAO. Right? But you know I couldn’t installed TAO. I was thinking that I could upload .pth files using Pytorch.

It is expected to run training with TAO. We did not know if it works in other framework.

For installing TAO, let us sync in another topic.
