Extended Efficient Layer Aggregation Networks (E-ELANs)

Learn about the changes made in the backbone used in YOLO v7.


E-ELAN builds upon the ELAN (efficient longest available network) design strategy, which aims to design efficient networks. The primary motivation behind ELAN is to control the shortest longest gradient path, enabling deeper networks to learn and converge effectively. Analyzing the gradient path enables the weights of different layers to learn more diverse features, resulting in better predictions and reducing latency.

Based on this, ELAN authors came up with the conclusion listed below:
