Deci Unveils A Deep Learning Training Library For Developers


Deci, a deep learning development company harnessing Artificial Intelligence (AI) to build AI, is releasing SuperGradients, an “all-in-one” deep learning training library for computer vision models.

SuperGradients enables developers to train PyTorch-based models for the most common computer vision tasks, including object detection, image classification, and semantic segmentation with just one training script.

In addition, users can easily load and fine-tune pre-trained state-of-the-art models (YOLOv5, DDRNet, EfficientNet, RegNet, ResNet, MobileNet), of which many were optimised to deliver higher accuracy compared to existing training libraries, according to the vendor.

Developed by Deci’s deep learning experts, SuperGradients offers a wide range of pre-trained production-ready deep learning models that were tested in production environments (converted to optimised deployable runtime executors such as OpenVINO, TensorRT, ONNX). The library also includes proven training recipes for easy reproduction of training results, thus making AI more accessible for everyone.

“As deep learning is maturing and becoming more widely adopted, the model development and training processes must be simplified. In order to deliver on the promise of deep learning, teams require tools that can facilitate the architecture selection phase, as well as enable them to achieve better training results faster,” said Yonatan Geifman, co-founder and CEO of Deci. “This is why we decided to release SuperGradients as an open-source solution for the entire AI community to benefit from. By offering developers better tools to build, optimise and deploy models, we help to simplify the entire deep learning lifecycle and enable developers to focus on what they do best – creating innovative AI solutions to solve the world’s most complex problems.”

Benefits of SuperGradients include:

  • Easy access to train and fine-tune state-of-the-art models for any computer vision task with just one training repository.
  • Training recipes that outperform other training libraries, as well as code examples for a wide range of computer vision models generated by Deci’s team of deep learning experts, thus eliminating uncertainty and shortening the training lifecycle.
  • Plug & play hyperparameters for training, dataset, and architecture
  • Seamless integration of deep learning models into users’ codebase hassle free.

SuperGradients also supports the easy fine-tuning and retraining of DeciNets, a family of state-of-the-art deep learning models generated by Deci’s proprietary Automated Neural Architecture Construction (AutoNAC) technology. DeciNets are currently being used by leading AI teams worldwide for multiple use cases.
