I have gone through various articles on medium and also some from other sites trying to understand SSD. I am able to figure out most of the things from articles except this one.
They always say that the area and location of detectors/anchors in fixed in the model. They also show us the various shapes of detectors based on aspect ratio. But I can't understand how to fix the location of detectors.
Suppose, I want my detector to focus only on the top-right of the image, how can I achieve that? I mean, the filters learned by CNN are applied to the whole image by sliding through its parts. How can we actually achieve this?
Is this related to 'receptive field' or '1x1 convolution'? I am trying to understand these two concepts too but haven't progressed much.
