Label Studio supports the highly-regarded YOLO image annotation format. YOLO (short for ‘You Only Look Once’) allows real-time object detection within a standard image format using normalized coordinates.
Export annotations from Label Studio to the YOLO format to use the image annotations for retraining and fine-tuning models. Label Studio also provides a converter utility to import YOLOv2 and YOLOv3 model formats into Label Studio’s existing annotation format for batch import.
Integrating YOLO annotations with Label Studio provides the following benefits:
- Compatibility: YOLO is one of the most popular models and formats for object detection, and integration with Label Studio allows for the easy sharing of models.
- Automated Labeling: YOLO can quickly pre-annotate a dataset for import into Label Studio, reducing the workload for an annotation team and helping quickly move datasets from labeling to training.
