To train Ultralytics YOLOv8n model on the Package Segmentation dataset for 100 epochs with an image size of 640, you can use the following code snippets. For a comprehensive list of available arguments, refer to the model Training page.

Train Example

from ultralytics import YOLO

# Load a model
model = YOLO("")  # load a pretrained model (recommended for training)

# Train the model
results = model.train(data="package-seg.yaml", epochs=100, imgsz=640)
# Start training from a pretrained *.pt model
yolo segment train data=package-seg.yaml epochs=100 imgsz=640
