Object Detection including images without objects

Trevor_T Registered Posts: 1 ✭✭✭✭

The object detection algorithm in Dataiku (Faster RCNN) works well at detecting objects labelled in images but the training appears to automatically filter out all images that do not contain an object. This results in major shortcomings in precision. Is it possible to train with a mixture of images that do or do not contain annotated objects? Searching the internet gives me limited results but some threads suggest that this is an option for Faster RCNN: https://github.com/tensorpack/tensorpack/issues/1230
