Hi Guys
I am experiencing that when i am using a R-CNN detector for object detection , when i increase the training data , i have bad classification and overfitting

Overfitting happens when the model fits too well to the training set. It then becomes difficult for the model to generalize to new examples that were not in the training set. For example, model recognizes specific images in the training set instead of general patterns. Training accuracy will be higher than the accuracy on the validation/test set.
Steps for reducing overfitting:
  • Add more variant Dataset
  • Make use of balance Dataset
  • Use data augmentation
  • Use architectures that generalize well
  • Add regularization (mostly dropout, L1/L2 regularization are also possible)
