For my thesis, I am trying to modify the loss function of faster-rcnn with regards to recognizing table structures.

Currently, I am using Facebook's Detectron. It seems to be working great but I am now actively trying to modify the loss function. Debugging my code I notice this is where the loss functions are added

def add_fast_rcnn_losses(model):

"""Add losses for RoI classification and bounding box regression."""

cls_prob, loss_cls =

    ['cls_score', 'labels_int32'], ['cls_prob', 'loss_cls'],



loss_bbox =


        'bbox_pred', 'bbox_targets', 'bbox_inside_weights',






loss_gradients = blob_utils.get_loss_gradients(model, [loss_cls, loss_bbox])

model.Accuracy(['cls_prob', 'labels_int32'], 'accuracy_cls')

model.AddLosses(['loss_cls', 'loss_bbox'])


return loss_gradients

The debugger cant find any declaration or implementation of nor SoftmaxWithLoss. Detectron uses caffe, and when I look in the net_builder (which inits the I see it makes "binds"(don't know the proper word) to caffe2, which in itself is a py lib with a compiled lib behind it.

Am I looking in the wrong place to make a minor adjustment to this loss function, or will I really have to open de source from dcaffe, adjust the loss, recompile the lib?

Try to implement the function by yourself. 

You can create a python function to predict and return loss value. Caffe is now part of PyTorch.
