Face Mask Detection with Yolo v4

Face masks are one of the key strategies listed from the CDC to prevent the spread of the novel COVID-19. However, not everybody follows those guidelines. Using an automated machine learning approach, it is possible to detect face mask wearing compliance. Additionally, it can lead to better safety measures as one can use remote systems to monitor for mask compliance. In this post, we use Yolo v4 to perform object detection on face masks.
