That sounds really interesting, the capabilities of YOLO are really good, I
think you can get about 50-60 FPS on a decent GPU?

Please don't hesitate to ask questions about the project either over the mailing
list or on IRC (#mlpack).

At this point we are mostly interested in the standard implementation, it should
be possible to use the existing classes (FFN, linear layer); but I agree this
project could include a research component.

The Application Guide (https://github.com/mlpack/mlpack/wiki/Google-Summer-of-
Code-Application-Guide) should be useful here.

I hope anything I said was helpfu, let me know if I should clarify anything.

Thanks,
Marcus
