# Car detection with YOLO - yolo_filter_boxes

Hi,

in yolo_filter_boxes, I get the error below and I am struggling to solve it.

I believe it may be related to the type of box_class_scores (I am using tf.math.reduce_max, as per the instructions) but I do not know what I am supposed to do.

Hello @vaccam1

You are almost there, I was also stuck with this for a long time
please check you `filtering mask`, it is much easier to implement than you think, there is no additional functions needed

I have tried using filtering_mask = box_class_scores >= threshold but still get the error message below. I have tried a myriad of things. I am really stuck and I do not understand how it is possible. Perhaps a mentor could help me out?

Hi,

Now at least I get an output, but with the wrong shapes, for example:

scores.shape = (361, 5, 80)
boxes.shape = (361, 5, 4)
classes.shape = (361, 5)

I strongly believe the issue is still with my filtering mask. Any suggestion would be deeply appreciated (I have already got full marks on the other assignment, so I just need to get this right to move onto the next week!)

I got the same problem too. But I solve it now. It seems like your box_class_scores makes a wrong shape, you should use box_score instead of box_classes.
And also your scores will show a wrong value compare to the expected output.
Check the document closely to make sure you fully understand what those function actually working for.

I believe the error resides in this line of code. We need to use box_class_scores here instead of box_scores. Try replacing it with,

Just remember the tf.math.reducemax function is to get the maximum values, tf.math.argmax to get the position of the max value

You were all correct. I had made a mess and did not realize it at first because I forgot to apply tf.cast in my filtering mask. I will now remove the code above. Thank you all!!!

You were right! It is much easier to implement than we think. Thanks for the help! I was stuck on this for an hour and I figured it out now!

Hello,

I’m still stuck, and I have the same error you had “Cannot convert 0.5 to EagerTensor of dtype int64”
But the thing is, if we apply the mast to the “box_class_scores” and knowing that “box_class_scores” countain intergers from 1 to 80.

I really don’t get it.

What would be logic for me it to create the filter based on box_classes because its values are between 0 and 1

Please any help would be appreciable
