IMPROVING PROPOSAL-BASED OBJECT DETECTION USING CONVOLUTIONAL CONTEXT FEATURES

A novel extension to proposal-based detection is proposed in order to learn convolutional context features for determining boundaries of objects better. Objects and their context are aimed to be learned through parallel convolutional stages. The resulting object and context feature maps are combined in such a way that they preserve their spatial relationship. The proposed algorithm is trained and evaluated on PASCAL VOC 2007 detection benchmark dataset and yielded improvements in performance over baseline, for all classes, especially the ones with distinctive context.

Object Detection with Convolutional Context Features
Kaya, Emre Can; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2017-01-01)
A novel extension to Huh B-ESA object detection algorithm is proposed in order to learn convolutional context features for determining boundaries of objects better. For input images, the hypothesis windows and their context around those windows are learned through convolutional layers as two parallel networks. The resulting object and context feature maps are combined in such a way that they preserve their spatial relationship. The proposed algorithm is trained and evaluated on PASCAL VOC 2007 detection ben...
Rescoring detections based on contextual scores in object detection
Zorlu, Ersan Vural; Akbaş, Emre; Department of Computer Engineering (2019)
To detect objects in an image, current state-of-the-art object detectors firstly definecandidate object locations, and then classify each of them into one of the predefinedcategories or as background. They do so by using the visual features extracted locallyfrom the candidate locations; omitting the rich contextual information embedded inthe whole image. Contextual information can be utilized to complement the informa-tion extracted locally and thereby to improve object detection accuracy. Researchershave p...
Training object detectors by directly optimizing lrp metric
Çam, Barış Can; Akbaş, Emre; Kalkan, Sinan; Department of Computer Engineering (2020-9)
This thesis focuses on training deep object detection networks by directly optimizing the localisation-recall-precision (LRP) performance metric that can evaluate classification and localisation performance of an object detector in a unified manner (Oksuz et al., 2018). To achieve this goal, unlike the commonly used linear weighting approach, we aim to implicitly optimize the LRP metric first by using a bounded localisation loss from previous works and proposing a loss function that can bound the range ...
Fine-Grained Object Recognition and Zero-Shot Learning in Remote Sensing Imagery
Sumbul, Gencer; Cinbiş, Ramazan Gökberk; Aksoy, Selim (2018-02-01)
Fine-grained object recognition that aims to identify the type of an object among a large number of subcategories is an emerging application with the increasing resolution that exposes new details in image data. Traditional fully supervised algorithms fail to handle this problem where there is low betweenclass variance and high within-class variance for the classes of interest with small sample sizes. We study an even more extreme scenario named zero-shot learning (ZSL) in which no training example exists f...
Enhanced Deep Learning with Improved Feature Subspace Separation
Parlaktuna, Mustafa; Sekmen, Ali; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Abdul Malek, Ayad (2018-09-30)
This research proposes a new deep convolutional network architecture that improves the feature subspace separation. In training, the system considers M classes of input sets {C-i}(i=1)(M) and M deep convolutional networks {DNi}(i=1)(M) whose filter and other parameters are randomly initialized. For each input class C-i, Convolutional Neural Network generates a set of features F-i. Then, a local subspace S-i is matched for each set F-i. This is followed with a full training of the deep convolutional network ...
