Target Class Learning for Anomaly/Outlier Detection: a robust strategyMachine learning techniques have advanced exponentially in recent years. These improved technologies are adopted in several application domains. An anomaly is an abnormal pattern that exists in the data and in all real-time applications, anomaly detection is the most crucial task. The anomaly or outlier detection task becomes more challenging when only the target class (class of interest) samples are available during training and other class samples are either ill-defined or absent. In this context, several solutions have been offered, but despite the extensive technological developments, anomaly/novelty detection is still a challenging task and there is enough scope to mimic the learning behaviour of the human brain. Following the capability of the brain to simultaneously analyze the anomaly, one-class classification strategies are adopted for better learning of the target class. Apart from the huge sample space, the high dimension of the data adds computational overhead along with its intrinsic property of curse of dimensionality. The learning models exhibit better performance in the presence of the most promising training samples and discriminating features. The selection of training samples and features must be supervised by only the target class samples to ensure strong separation from outliers. With this motivation, this tutorial presents the recent advancements in target class learning for anomaly detection while covering fundamentals, use-cases, applications, and challenges. The tutorial also discusses future research possibilities and necessary challenges.Take me there!
General Adaptive Neighborhood Image Processing and Analysis (GANIPA) The framework entitled General Adaptive Neighborhood Image Processing and Analysis (GANIPA) has been introduced in order to propose an original local image representation and mathematical structure for adaptive non-linear processing and analysis of gray-tone images and further extended to color and multispectral images. The central idea is based on the key notion of adaptivity which is simultaneously associated with the analyzing scales, the spatial structures and the intensity values of the image to be addressed. Several adaptive image operators are then defined in the context of image filtering, image segmentation, image measurements and image registration by the use of convolution analysis, order filtering, mathematical morphology, integral geometrical or similarity measures. Such operators are no longer spatially invariant, but vary over the whole image with General Adaptive Neighborhoods (GANs) as adaptive operational windows, taking intrinsically into account the local image features. The first part of this tutorial will be focused on the context and the definitions and properties of the GANs. Once these adaptive neighborhoods are defined, it is possible to build different operators for image processing (filtering such as enhancement/restoration, segmentation, registration...) but also for image analysis providing tools for local image measurements (for shape analysis, object detection, image classification). The second part of my talk will be focused on these new operators and will be illustrated on real applications in different areas (biomedical, material, process engineering, remote sensing...). Finally, some conclusions and prospects will be given. In conclusion, the GANIPA framework allows efficient adaptive image operators to be built (using local adaptive operational windows) and opens new pathways that promise large prospects for image and pattern analysis.Take me there!
Contactless and Less-Constrained Palmprint Identification Automated personal identification using biometrics characteristics is one of the most critical and challenging tasks to meet growing demand for stringent security. Wide availability of smartphones, popularity of e-commerce and heightened hygienic concerns due to COVID19, have increasingly attracted the researchers to devise more accurate and robust algorithms for the contactless palmprint identification. This tutorial will systematically discuss on the popular matching methods for the palmprint feature extraction and matching. Such introduction will lead to description on more accurate, robust and computationally simpler alternatives for the contactless palmprint identification. This tutorial will also focus on the effectiveness of the deep neural network-based models to accurately detect and match real-world contactless palmprint images. Experimental results from various public completely contactless palmprint database acquired, using cross-database performance evaluation protocols will be presented. Effectiveness of the contactless palmprint matching algorithms for matching the cross-sensor and cross-spectral palmprint images will also be analyzed and discussed. This tutorial will provide complete overview and algorithmic details relating to the state-of-the-art on completely contactless (2D and 3D) palmprint detection and matching. Best practices for evaluating the effectiveness of contactless palmprint matching algorithms for the real-world deployments will also be discussed.Take me there!
Deep Learning Models for Weakly-Supervised Object Localization and SegmentationDeep learning models, and in particular CNNs, provide state-of-the-art performance in many visual recognition applications, such as image classification, object localization and detection, and segmentation. However, they remain complex models with millions of parameters that typically require supervised end-to-end training on large annotated datasets. Weakly supervised learning (WSL) has recently emerged as an appealing approach to mitigate the cost and burden of annotating large datasets, by exploiting data with limited or coarse labels. In particular, WSL is largely beneficial in object localization and semantic segmentation tasks, to avoid the costly process of extracting bounding boxes and dense pixel-wise annotations. Weakly-supervised object localization (WSOL) and weakly-supervised semantic segmentation (WSSS) methods have drawn much attention because they rely on less costly annotation such as image-class labels. This tutorial provides a detailed review of the recent progress with deep WSOL/WSSS models, and their applications in pattern recognition and computer vision. The tutorial will cover the fundamental principles, recent trends and developments, key challenges, and insights on these powerful models. In addition, the tutorial is accompanied by various examples where deep WSOL/WSSS models are applied to solve real-world problems in, e.g, visual recognition and medical image analysis.Take me there!
Few-Shot LearningDeep learning models are dominating pattern recognition, machine learning and computer vision, and have achieved human leve performances in various tasks, such as image classification. The success and unprecedented performances of state-of-theart learning models are often achieved via training on large-scale labeled data sets. Nevertheless, current models still have difficulty generalizing to novel tasks (e.g., new image classes) unseen during training, given only a few labeled instances for these new tasks. In contrast, humans can learn new tasks easily from a few examples, by leveraging prior experience and related context. Few-shot learning has emerged as an appealing paradigm to bridge this gap. In a few-shot learning setting, a model is first trained on substantial labeled data over an initial task, a process often referred to as base training. Then, supervision for new tasks, which are unseen during base training, is limited to just one or few labeled examples per task. Few-shot learning has recently triggered substantial research efforts and interests, with large numbers of publications within the machine learning, computer vision and pattern recognition communities. For instance, meta-learning or “learning-to-learn” approaches, which create artificial few-shot tasks during training to mimic generalization difficulties, have attracted widespread attention within the community. This tutorial discusses the recent progress made in few-shot learning, juxtaposing meta-learning and advanced transfer-learning approaches. It will also discuss various applications of few-shot learning in pattern recognition and computer vision. We will emphasize recent trends and insights from the literature, and point to important limitations in current few-shot models and benchmarks. We will focus on basic understanding of few-shot concepts and models so that tutorial attendees, without prior experience in few-shot learning, could extend/use effectively few-shot methods and publicly available code.Take me there!
Visual Fusion for Pattern RecognitionMany pattern recognition tasks, whether carried out by humans or machines are facilitated by the use of multimodal sensing (e.g. RGB, infrared, thermal, depth, hyperspectral, LIDAR) which provides complementary information about the objects or phenomena to be classified by measuring their different properties. However, this raises the problem of fusing the multiple sources of information (views). The problem has been addressed by research in image fusion. The aim of this tutorial is to provide an overview of the visual information fusion area, covering: a) Problem formulation and prerequisites, b) Visual fusion frameworks, c) Image fusion techniques. The use of the fusion techniques described will be illustrated on different applications, including visual object tracking.Take me there!
