Week 3: COCO Dataset


Browse the COCO dataset website and read the paper.


You can do this week's programming assignment on your own computers or on the DSMLP cluster. The advantage of using the cluster is that the COCO data set has already been downloaded to it, and it may be easier to use it as a team.

Download the COCO API and get the Python API to work (no need to deal with Matlab or Lua).

Run the demo: cocoapi/PythonAPI/pycocoDemo.ipynb

Participation Assignment

For your Week 3 Participation Assignment, answer the following questions:

  1. What does the COCO dataset consist of?
  2. What does the Python API demo do?
  3. Which were the biggest problems your team had to solve to get the demo to work?
