I wonder what is theoretically easier for Faster Rcnn to learn (by fine tuning after initialization on imageNet).
If I have a dataset of 2000 bottles pictures
500 water bottles
500 soda bottles
500 wine bottles
500 beer bottles
I have the choice to tag my bounding boxes as I prefer. Either tag all as "bottles", and have only one class to detect in the network. Either specify the type of the bottle, and have 4 classes.
On one hand, it seems to me the more specific are the classes the more easy it is for the net to extract features and localize objects of interest in the picture.
On the other hand, the amount of data available for fine tune is 4 times bigger if I train on generic "bottle" class.
Is there a theoretical known answer to this question? Someone could give an intuition of the explanation?
Should the parameter tweaking be very different in one case or another (batch/minibatch size, learning rate)?
Any intuitive explanation would be welcome to hear :)
