Why there is no YOLO models at TensorFlow Hub or Model Garden

I would like to retrain a YOLOv4 model, but I prefer a more mainstream environment than the Darknet. I looked at the catalog of models at TensorFlow Hub and Model Garden, but there is no YOLO models there. YOLO achieves the fastest frame rates for object detection in many benchmarks. What is the reason for a lack of official Google support? Is it just a sheer quantity of various models to support or superior models already available at TensorFlow Hub and Model Garden?

Hi Paul,

publishing models on TFHub or Model Garden depends on the model creator to decide to do so.

Researchers from Google published multiple Object Detection models that can be fine tuned using Model Maker.

For Yolo specifically, I guess the problem is that the creator didn’t want to publish it on TFHub yet. Would be great if they did.

Thanks, I didn’t know that the community can publish models there.
