Understanding the jargon — #23 Jaccard Index
In this short explanation, we delve into Jaccard Index in the context of machine learning — as in the way it is implemented in algorithms like YOLO and SSD ( Single shot Detection ) for object detection in images.
What it is —
Simply put, Jaccard Index is the measure of overlap of two different sets. “It is the ration of the intersection of the two sets to the Union of the two sets .”
