This paper addresses the problem of maritime vessel identification by exploiting the state-of-the-art techniques of distance metric learning and deep convolutional neural networks since vessels are the key constituents of marine surveillance. In order to increase the performance of visual vessel identification, we propose a joint learning framework which considers a classification and a distance metric learning cost function. The proposed method utilizes the quadruplet samples from a diverse image dataset to learn the ranking of the distances for hierarchical levels of labeling. The proposed method performs favorably well for vessel identification task against the conventional use of neuron activations towards the final layers of the classification networks. The proposed method achieves 60 percent vessel identification accuracy for 3965 different vessels without sacrificing vessel type classification accuracy.

Dry Dock Detection in Satellite Images with Representation Learning
Aktaş, Ümit Ruşen; Firat, Orhan; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2013-04-26)
In this study, we propose a method to detect dry docks, a harbour man-made object which is hard to recognize, using representation learning in satellite images. Dry docks are coastal structures which may include ships for repairing purposes, and they exist in harbour regions. The search space is pruned by making use of two low-level features that invariantly define docks, and remaining samples are used to train a representation learning system. Experimental results suggest that classification methods using ...
Deep metric learning with distance sensitive entangled triplet losses
Karaman, Kaan; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-2-12)
Metric learning aims to define a distance that is able to measure the semantic difference between the instances in a dataset. The most recent approaches in this area mostly utilize deep neural networks as their models to map the input data into a feature space by finding appropriate distance metrics between the features. A number of loss functions are already defined in the literature based on these similarity metrics to discriminate instances in the feature space. In this thesis, we particularly focus on t...
Deep Learning-Based Hybrid Approach for Phase Retrieval
IŞIL, ÇAĞATAY; Öktem, Sevinç Figen; KOÇ, AYKUT (2019-06-24)
We develop a phase retrieval algorithm that utilizes the hybrid-input-output (HIO) algorithm with a deep neural network (DNN). The DNN architecture, which is trained to remove the artifacts of HIO, is used iteratively with HIO to improve the reconstructions. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach with little additional cost.
Hyperspectral data classification via capsule networks
Soyak, Elmas; Bozdağı Akar, Gözde.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2019)
In this thesis, a novel deep architecture capsule networks are investigated for hyperspectral data classification purposes. Even though this algorithm resembles convolutional neural networks (CNN), which is one of the most successful methods in classification, capsule networks have been developed to overcome the limitations of it. CNN applies convolution operation to extract features in the samples and uses these features to classify them. However, it fails to measure the relationship between these features...
