As the largest object detection dataset so far, OpenImages brings great opportunities and challenges for object detection in general and sophisticated scenarios. However, owing to its semi-automatic collecting and labeling pipeline to deal with the huge data scale, Open Images dataset suffers from label-related problems that objects may explicitly or implicitly have multiple labels and the label distribution is extremely imbalanced. In this work, we quantitatively analyze these label problems and provide a simple but effective solution. We design a concurrent softmax to handle the multi-label problems in object detection and propose a soft-sampling methods with hybrid training scheduler to deal with the label imbalance. Overall, our method yields a dramatic improvement of 3.34 points, leading to the best single model with 60.90 mAP on the public object detection test set of Open Images. And our ensembling result achieves 67.17mAP, which is 4.29 points higher than the first place method last year.
